The Original Magic and Pop Culture. A multi-fandom show with Doc Brown/Indiana Jones, The Shark from Jaws, Yoda and the Slightly Evil Dead.  We can mix in Dr Who and Potter characters to this show if it is the only show we are doing at your con.

We have a version of this that adds Elsa and Ana from Frozen appearing throughout the Show while I chase them with a chainsaw and Rocket Launcher.

These are completely new Comedy shows unlike anything you will see anywhere on the planet.  I combine my love of Nerd Culture with Comedy and with Magic.  It is really a Comedy show about Pop Culture, Potter Or Dr Who that just happens to feature magic and illusion. It is designed for Comic Cons and Pop Culture Events but also can be performed at Corporate Events. We can perform one of the shows or different shows during your event. We recently performed 4 different types of shows at Granite State Comic Con 2017.

I will use people from the audience and interface with them on stage.

Some people, might lose their head in my head chopper or might even be cut in half.  Some may just help make the magic happen all with magic and cosplay and comedy.

This show is best for a platform or riser in front of an audience or a stage. The show comes with it’s own sound equipment or can use any equipment that already exists in the venue.

I use various characters and costumes during the show and these characters may vary per performance.
