I have two open-to-the-public shows this weekend, with my buddy Harville; Friday we’ll be at JonEB’s Bar & Grill in Champaign, Illinois, and on Saturday we’ll be partying at Big Ed’s Firehouse in New Hampton, Iowa.
If you’re in either of those areas, come on out and say hello.
I’ll let you touch the scabs on my new tattoos.
Get more details about the shows HERE.
Part magician, part comedian, and totally dysfunctional, Nathan Allen will be bringing his highly-caffeinated blend of magic and comedy back to Canton, Illinois! Allen (dubbed “The Maniac of Magic” by his peers) will be making a stop at White Oaks Sports Bar (46 White Court, Canton, IL) on Friday, July 6th. The adult-only show is scheduled to begin at 8:00pm.
Yes, Nathan Allen is a magician, but don’t be fooled – you will see NO rabbit, NO tuxedo, and NO sparkly boxes in this show. Instead, Nathan combines his twisted sense of humor, sleight-of-hand magic skills, and hilarious audience participation into one of the very few magic shows on the face of the planet that is both geared for adults AND funny.
The best trick up Nathan’s sleeve is his ability to connect with a crowd, and it’s a trick he can pull off whether he is at a corporate event or a biker bar. With a knack for being a bit naughty and tons of fun, without being offensive, Nathan’s personality-driven performances have been described as “Edgy, funny comedy and magic at its best” (Naturally Funny Entertainment; Chicago, IL), “Funny, fast-moving, unique, and very entertaining!” (Vetesnik Power Sports; Richland Center, WI), and “Action packed, funny, and unpredictable!” (Iowa Emergency Management Association; Des Moines, IA).
The International Brotherhood of Magicians recently presented Nathan with the Iowa Magic Award, based on his technical skills and entertainment value. He was the only magician featured in “The Grassroots Comedy Tour” and in “The Super Bowl of Stand-Up.” His entertainment services won him a full-ride business scholarship to attend college. He was just on television in Europe. Of the dozens of magicians in Iowa, Nathan was the only one selected to perform onstage at Iowa Governor Culver‘s Inaugural Gala. And yet, in a typical example of his priorities, he insists that he is most proud of being elected Class Clown.
More than just something out of thin air, Nathan’s slow-but-steady rise in the entertainment industry is the result of a 15-year, love-hate obsession with his work. He started learning magic when he was only 8 years old and did his first paid performance when he was just 12. Now, at the age of 28, Nathan has a long list of performances under his belt, for companies including 3M, Alliant Energy, Charter Communications, Honda, RadioShack, and Wal-Mart, to name just a few. In addition to countless corporate engagements at banquets, awards nights, and holiday parties, Nathan also works at nightclubs, casinos, class reunions, clubs, colleges, golf courses, festivals, proms, and private parties throughout the upper Midwest.
Nathan is based out of Des Moines, Iowa. He drinks way too much coffee, and in his spare time, he enjoys arguing with the television. When it’s turned off.
Friday’s show in Canton will feature the flame-throwing comedy of Harville! Dark and twisted, with a seriously warped view of life, Harville’s brand of humor is not for the faint of heart! Let Harville take you by the hand (or any other convenient appendage), and lead you into the darkest, funniest corners of his (and your) poor diseased mind(s)!
