If you own a business, tell us about it.

My business is "Mister Illusion Magic Productions". We have programs for any age group and just about any type of venue. We do stage magic, close-up magic, or strolling magic. We know what children enjoy as well as what adults enjoy and we use that knowledge in formulating our programs. We are portable and have performed extensively in the Greater Sacramento area for businesses as well as private parties. We have performed from Coast to Coast as well as in Europe and once on a Cruise Ship. My wife, Barb, joins me as my assistant when I perform on stage or stand-up. She has appeared, disappeared, and levitated in my shows, but never really wants to know "how it is done"

Have you written any books? List them here!

"Top Secret Mister Illusion Magic & Activity Book"

What topics do you speak about?

Many of my presentations are just for fun, and in those instances the scripting is not related to anything specific. We do get booked on occasion to incorporate our magic and illusions into a specific message. We find it interesting and challenging to blend a message into our performances; it stimulates our creativity. We have had a variety of topics to include: teaching the Gospel, promoting pest control, safety for children, economics, scouting, and many others.

Please list any awards or special recognition you have received. Don't be shy!

Are you interested in speaking at this meetup, if not why?

Performing magic for all kinds of age-groups has been lucrative as well as fun. The true reward for me, though, has been comments like "I was having a bad day, but that is all over now", or "I was laughing so hard, my face hurts", or when forty preschoolers silently come up to me one at a time to give me a hug. This is when I know that I have achieved my objective of entertaining. Magic and illusions are fine by themselves, but without the entertainment aspect, all I would be doing is puzzles in front of an audience--and that is not entertaining. There are so many rewards with what I do that the list would be quite long. When I hold a class on magic for children or for adults, the reward there is seeing someone perform an illusion or trick after a bit of practice and guidance. Seeing the excitement and sense of accomplishment is rewarding for both of us. In short, I am happy helping others be happier and forgetting their troubles for at least a little while

Introduction

Comedy Magician entertainer. Performing in the greater Sacramento area over 17 years. Performed internationally, on cruise ships as well as in private homes. There is a shortage of laughter and my goal is to satisfy that need with good clean humor
