It’s my looooong-overdue new demo/sizzle/preview video. The one I’d been using was from like 2013, lol. I know, I know. Five years is not a terribly long time in the big scheme of things, but that’s like 30 years in Entertainer Promo Years.

DUBUQUE, IOWA – Part magician, part comedian, and totally dysfunctional, Nathan Allen will be bringing his highly-caffeinated blend of magic and comedy to Dubuque! Allen (dubbed “The Maniac of Magic” by his peers) will be making a stop at The Whisky (1064 University Avenue) on Saturday, November 23rd. The adult-only show will start at 8:00 PM.

Yes, Nathan Allen is a magician, but don’t be fooled – you will see 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 is the only magician ever featured in “The Grassroots Comedy Tour” and “The Dirty Jokes & Magic Tricks Show”. His entertainment services won him a full-ride business scholarship to attend college. Of the dozens of magicians in Iowa, Nathan was the only one selected to perform onstage at Iowa Governor Culver‘s Inaugural Gala. He has appeared on international television on TV3, broadcast from the United Kingdom, and has been seen here in the USA on NBC, ABC, and PBS television news programs. 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 29, Nathan has a long list of performances under his belt, for companies including 3M, Alliant Energy, Charter Communications, Honda, RadioShack, Swiss Valley Farms, and Wal-Mart, to name just a few.

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.

Guest comedian added to tonight’s show – SEE & HEAR CLIPS!

(We promise he’ll be dressed tonight)

We just added a last-minute special guest to tonight’s show in Centerville Iowa – the attendees of the Centerville Eagles Club show tonight will get to experience the flame-throwing comedy of “Professor” Michael 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)!

Push play to hear a clip from Harville’s act:

We’ll see ya guys tonight!

Gallagher’s watermelon-smashing heart-attack table

The table I used at my show the other night used to be one of Gallagher’s “Sledge-O-Matic” tables. True story, yo.

In fact… it was the exact same table he was using when he had his heart-attack onstage in the middle of his show:

Scary stuff.
