Stage magic: David has over 100 minutes of stage material to choose from. He has a stage show that he performs in a suit, if that's appropriate for the occasion. And he has a theme show called "The Jungle Show" that is his cruise-ship show and is quite funny and fascinating. His show plays large, so that people in the back seats of a 1,000-seat theatre can see and understand what's going on. He performs such magic classics as the Linking Rings, Bill in Lemon, Paper Balls Over the Head, Silk to Egg, Knife through the Coat, a live bunny production, and Die Box, as well as his own unique tricks and twists. His comedy is clever and charming and never puts people down.
Stage mentalism: David performs a full mentalism show that will make people believe he has special powers. He reads people's minds, makes objects move from a distance, makes amazing number predictions, bends silverware, coins, and nails with his mind, and has dreams that predict the future. His demeanor is smart and informed, so people believe in him. If you're looking for an intelligent show for an intelligent audience, this is the one for you.
Closeup magic: David is highly skilled at sleight of hand. He performs miracles with cards, coins, rope, and other common objects. Unique objects disappear and end up in impossible locations. He performs many of the classics of magic, including Ambitious Card, The Haunted Pack, Torn & Restored Card, Photocopy, Dream Card, and Coins Across, as well as more offbeat tricks that you have never seen before. He uses the motor skills he honed in his early years as a classical pianist and brings them to bear in a magical environment.
Background: David started out as a journalist, writing for such august publications as Esquire, Harper's Bazaar, Mademoiselle, McCall's, Good Housekeeping, Self, New Woman, Runner's World, UPI, the Los Angeles Times, the New York Daily News, Psychology Today, (link hidden), Shape, American Health, and many others. When he switched to magic, he was able to write an entertaining script the way that many magicians simply cannot. He has published two books: a magic book and a thriller.
Approach: David believes that a magician is there first and foremost to entertain and make people feel good. He feels that his job is to be the best-dressed man in the room. He always amazes, but even more than that, he must charm and make a connection. Every encounter must be a win-win.
