How did you do that?
Smoke and mirrors. And wires. And my sleeves. Oh, and a trap door. Trap doors are neat.
WHY did you do that?
It seemed like a good idea at the time.
What is your show like?
I perform “Comedy Magic,” which combines elements of sleight-of-hand, stage magic, stand-up comedy, and audience participation. My particular show is for adults, because it’s funny and naughty.
Exactly how “naughty” are your shows?
Well… I’m no “Silly Willy The Birthday Magician,” but then again, I’m not “Filthy McNasty The X-Rated Comedian,” either. It’s funny, edgy, and for adult audiences, but is NOT gross, obscene, or offensive. It’s fun.
So… Are you a magician? Or a comedian?
Both, and neither… I like to think of myself as a magician, but after a show recently a guy said I was “75% comedian and 25% magician.” So I could be wrong. Here’s the sad truth: Most comedians don’t claim me because of the magic, and most magicians don’t claim me because of the comedy.
Are you any good?
Yup.
What do you have up your sleeves?
About a dozen tattoos. Stop touching me.
Can you pull a coin out of my ear?
You should probably go see a doctor about that.
Do you pick anyone out of the audience to help onstage during the show?
Yes – all throughout the entire show. People love to see “one of their own” brought onstage to become part of the show. And it’s all in good fun, so don’t hesitate to grab a seat up front and center.
Can you make someone disappear for me?
Sure. But do you need it to look like an accident? Because that costs extra.
What’s the difference between you and all the other magicians out there?
The biggest difference is I am less interested in “tricks” and more focused on creating laughter and having fun with the group. Another difference is, instead of being one of those “jack of all trades, master of none” performers who tries to be all things to all people, I specialize and do only ONE type of show (my comedy-magic stage show for adults). So those are the major differences. Oh, and I don’t have big sparkly boxes.
Why don’t you have big sparkly boxes?
Because I’m a minimalist at heart. And, audiences don’t care about sparkly props; audiences just want to be ENTERTAINED. Also, I’m too lazy to deal with a lot of luggage.
What size of crowds do you usually entertain?
Depending on the particular event I’m working for, my audiences range anywhere from 50 to 500 people. I’ve performed my comedy-magic show for as few as 8 people, and as many as 1,300. But most crowds are typically between 75 and 150 people, which is the perfect size group for what I do.
For what type of events do you perform? Can you make me float in the air?
Kinda. Have you ever tried Ketamine or Dextromethorphan?
Can you read minds?
Only my own. And I only get THAT right about half the time. So… no.
How long is your show?
The exact duration of the show depends on the particular event for which I’ve been hired to perform, but most of my performances are about an hour (the exact duration always varies a bit because I use so much audience participation).
Where are you from, and how far do you travel?
I travel nationwide, but am based in Iowa, so obviously I get around to Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Davenport, Sioux City, Iowa City, Waterloo, Ames, Dubuque, Fort Dodge, and Mason City all the time. I also frequently get invited to perform in the surrounding Midwestern states of Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, in and around Chicago, Minneapolis / St. Paul, St. Louis, Kansas City, Milwaukee, Omaha, Madison, Peoria, Appleton, Rockford, Green Bay, Lincoln, Duluth, Sioux Falls, Champaign, Springfield IL, St. Cloud, Rochester, Bloomington, La Crosse, Quincy, Mankato, Decatur, Eau Claire, and Janesville, to name just a few towns. And I enjoy traveling, so don’t hesitate to say hello if you’d like me to fly out to Las Vegas to entertain. Especially during the winter months. Goddamn I hate snow.
How much will it cost to book you for my event?
Pricing mostly depends on location and routing (if your event is held on a date and in a city that’s on the way to or from other gigs, the expenses will obviously be much lower than if your event requires special ten-hour trips each way, the day before and after). I’ll let you know right now, though, that I’m definitely not the cheapest, so if you’re just price-shopping, you should probably move on. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a guy who can really get the job done and blow away an adult audience, go ahead and contact me about your event now.
