Entertainment Is What Apollo Magic Is All About
Straight out of Chicago, Bryan has over 9 years of entertainment experience. From performing Stunt Shows for JRW Productions, juggling fire, to creating sophisticated illusions all with a pinch of comedy.
This is one unique hard working magician you won’t want to miss! Naming his company after Apollo the god of knowledge is no fluke. Bryan will use your knowledge of how the world works to show you the flaws! From close-up magic that will make you want to get your eyes checked, to illusions that will make your head spin, Bryan makes every event something to talk about.
Sleight of Hand
Stage Show Illusions
Bryan performed for my husband’s 50th birthday party and everyone had so much fun and told me what a great idea
Brian , was entertaining, and wowed the crowd. We are still talking about his magic . He knows his stuff and we will definitely use him again!
A true professional entertainer from start to finish. I needed talent to entertain 35 students for our preschool summer program and boy did he come through. He kept all the kids ages 2-5 engaged and entertained. If you hire him for your event you are not only getting a great magician but expect a comic as well. The children and adults alike were laughing throughout the whole event. Fantastic!
We had a 50 th birthday party and wanted entertainment for the group. We chose Ryan based solely on ratings and were happy we did. Great act, great presentation and extremely funny. He was interactive with all the guests and very personable. Highly recommended!
Bryan provided an hour and a half of close-up magic, intentionally visiting every single table at a family party with over 60 children (ages 5-12) and 100 guests total, then finished with a show at the end for all of the kids.
He kept up the momentum while going from table to table, entertaining all age ranges alike with his infectious energy and hilarious jokes between magic tricks. He was very engaged with the kids, remembering names and carrying fun conversations during the close-up magic portion.
Everyone was thrilled with the show at the end, and he kept pace with a packed event for the entire night without missing a beat. Definitely adding Apollo Magic to our vendor contact list for our next magic night!
Saw Bryan perform magic and fire eating at a small group gathering at Batch Meadery and he was great! Excellent magic, great showmanship, and all around a fun, enjoyable, and good show! We had a great time!
Brian did a home magic show for our girls group get-together. He was wonderful! He was funny and great at working with audience members. I would highly recommend!!
Brian was early to our graduation party, primarily adults with some children were in the audience. He was fun and energetic. My Iraqi family loved him. My American friends thought he was great. He was even gracious about a kid who wasn't very well-behaved. I would recommend him in an instant!
He was GREAT. Actually what I was looking for to liven the party up. He interacted with all my guest and was a big hit. Would definitely recommend him for your next party.
Brian was very accommodating with our time frame and our on a good show with many tricks that’s had my bachelor party amazed!
Bryan, Apollo Magic was just perfect.
The event was a family and close friend party for my mothers 85th birthday.
He called a week before and confirmed, was at the event on time and was in tune with the attendees and performed to those in attendance, children and adults!
Would definitely hire him again.
Response from Apollo Magic:
Thank you so much for using me! I'm glad everyone had a great time! Definitely one the most fun audiences this year!
Great show! Kids loved it ❤
Bryan was the icing on the cake at the Shower. Thank you so much for working the room by performing at each table with pizzazz, humor and amazing magic. Can’t wait to have Apollo magic as part of the next event ❣️Thank you, thank you.
Response from Apollo Magic:
Thank you Lori! I loved performing for everyone and I hope you use me in the future!
Between magic and a comedy show, these kids were entertained for an hr!
He blew it out of the water. Our party was not sure what to expect and there were some skeptics in the audience. Every person was left in awe and have an AMAZING time. Book him if you are searching and see this... you won’t regret it!
When you book Bryan, you're getting a professional who knows how to read a room and work it effectively. He cares enough to call ahead and discuss expectations and some of the finer details of the gig. As he works, he's at home, but he doesn't treat the performance as routine. His passion for magic/illusions is clear, and especially infectious when it comes to kids. Recommended!
Apollo Magic was an exceptional show. He provided guests with a unique experience and had everyone surprised by his magic. Definitely recommend for all ages!
Very easy to work with and made a very special day even better. Everyone at our reception made sure to tell me how much fun they had with him and definitely would recommend him for any occasion!
He performed at my church's Christmas program. The audience was a mix bag; young children, teens and adults, and everyone was thoroughly entertained. His routines were funny and engaging, especially the fire eating. We will definitely keep him mind for future events.
Was the hit of the party! Moved around from table to table made had some great magic tricks would for sure hire again no question if you are looking to hire a Magician he is your guy!!!!
Great show, fun and laughter, my clients had a blast...Grateful!
Would highly recommend
I hired Bryan /Apollo Magic for my husband’s birthday party and he did a great job of entertaining and wowing our guests with great tricks and a ton of jokes. Would hire again!
Bryan did close up magic at my husband’s 70th birthday party. He walked among the guests and amazed everyone. I got so many comments on how great he was. Highly, highly recommend.
Bryan was very professional, very fun, and very good to work with. He performed as a surprise at a 30th birthday party that we threw for my sister, and he did a great job developing rapport with the people there, bringing a lot of fun and something different and engaging into the space, and wow-ing people with his sleight of hand. It revved up the energy and gave everyone something to talk about and laugh about. We got messages all day the next day about how much fun people had. He was around for a bit afterward chatting with people, which they really enjoyed as well. I'd highly recommend working with Bryan and would work with him again.
My daughter really enjoyed it, the adults did as well. I can't thank him enough. I highly recommend him.
Had Brian come to my wife’s 50th Birthday.
Ages 4 to 92 really enjoyed his great card tricks and slight of hand. Moved around the house full of 45 people and all were really impressed and delighted.
I would recommend Apollo Magic a million times over. Our guests were thrilled and thoroughly entertained, and his energy kept our party going even though we couldn't be there while we were taking pictures. He gave my husband and I mini show on his way out and we really appreciate it :)
I needed some entertainment for a huge corporate party I was throwing and I hadn't even considered a magician, I had been looking exclusively for a musical act. It wasn't until I was attending another event with a different magician that I could see how unique and interesting it could be. Bryan had a great mix of magic and comedy that kept everyone engaged and interested. He did close up magic show as well as a short stage show. People kept telling me how awesome it was!
Apollo performed at our son's 7th birthday party and he was an absolute hit. We would hire him again and would recommend him to anyone looking for a top notch, entertaining magician.
Response from Apollo Magic:
Thank you for the kind words! The kids and the parents were a pleasure to perform for!
I booked him this past Sunday and everyone at my son's birthday party enjoyed his show (even the teenage kids) He was very entertaining since the beginning. I will definitely book him again.
I hired Bryan to perform at our New Years Eve party and it was wonderful! He was a big hit with the guests and had a wide variety of tricks that made for a very entertaining show. I would definitely recommend or use him again!
What to Expect
Once you hire Bryan he works on creating the entertainment you are looking for and brings the it to life. Performing everything from amazing sleight of hand magic that can't be replicated, to stage illusions and mentalism that make you question your sovereignty over your own thoughts.
Your guests will gasp in disbelief in between bouts of laughter from the amazing magic and unique comedic style.
Bryan has a shows that are great for every occasion. Bryan has done weddings, bachelorette parties, kid shows, wedding proposals, and company conventions.
Customers are always satisfied.

I am a 24 year old Middle School Teacher from Crystal Lake, IL. I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a Education of History and Science degree and student taught at Crystal Lake South High School in Illinois.
I have been entertaining people for over eight years performing magic acts in venues from theme parks to restaurants to private parties. I love what I do and I am always told I am very good at it. Entertainment is what this is all about.
Apollo magic combines workings of the famous magicians such as Penn and Teller, David Blaine and David Copperfield. Pickpocket magic is incorporated with strong close up and stage magic. This entertainment is for all ages. From card magic to coin magic, rope escapes made famous by Houdini, all are re-created right before your eyes – allowing you a look into the deception.
Additional Booking Notes
For large parties like company conventions and banquets I have two options available.1) Stage shows which are perfect for entertaining a large audience for an hour of magic and comedy. Or 2) Close- up/Walkaround magic which gives people a more personal and more undeniable way to see and be a part of the entertainment that happens.
For smaller parties of 1-30 people I recommend my close-up show. An hour and a half of magic in the style most can only see in LA's famous magic castle. This is close up magic at its finest!
Birthday parties, schools, and festivals I always recommend my kids show. Don't be decieved by the title, this is a show for all ages! It is kid focused. I make every kid a star and give them a part of the magic all while making the adults chuckle and "awe."

Influences & Inspiration
Heavily influenced by Penn and Teller and sleight of hand of friends from the Magic Castle.
For shows with over 50 people and loud environments I do require an outlet, sound system or time (45 minutes) before the show to set up my sound system. There is an additional charge for these larger shows.
