Dennis specializes in close-up magic and mentalism, but is also skilled in many other styles such as coin, rope, stage illusions, comedy, trade show, and impromptu magic.
Dennis often says "I am not interested in people being impressed by my abilities, my primary goal is to leave them with the sense of child-like awe and wonder that we lose as we become adults.
We had Dennis perform at my church for the Christmas Spectacular event. He was amazing and versatile. He had tricks for all ages, everyone was engaged. He even stayed afterwards to perform for the smaller groups in the waiting area. I thought this awesome, because of the large crowd he wasn’t able to fully engage with everyone during his set. He is all around a great guy. Definitely would recommend him to other events.
Adult birthday party for baby boomers. 50 guests. Dennis just walked in and started talking to people and doing his card tricks right away. The amazement on our friends’ faces was fun to watch. He is very personable and easy - very comfortable walking through the crowd . He made sure to get to every person there. I know he’ll get other jobs from our event - everyone was truly impressed!
I hired Dennis for my friends 40th birthday party. He came to the restaurant where i rented a room. He was great and blew our minds. Many people left confused and questioning how the heck he just did that. lol. Would definitely hire him again!
He did an amazing job for my boyfriends 35th birthday party. He was very polite and did a great job keeping my guests entertained. I will be booking him again for my sons birthday party in February.
Dennis hit it on the head! He captivated the audience and brought it all to the table, botb for the children and the adults that attended. He will surely be in mind for the future!
Dennis was amazing! I would definitely recommend him! He was great with the kids, and we had some pretty energetic ones! Neither the adults nor kids could figure out how he did his tricks, and they were right in front of us!! I WOULD HIRE HIM AGAIN FOR SURE!!
It’s was great
Everyone wqas amazed at the performance.
We hired Dennis to entertain a large group of kids at a birthday party. Not only did he entertain them, he kept their attention the entire time (ages 2-12), but he also kept the adults’ attention. He spent extra time at the party, walking around from table to table doing magic tricks. He was so kind and personable. I was hesitant to book someone online, but we are beyond pleased. We would absolutely recommend Dennis!

The guest was in aw the way he Mezmerize them! Thank you for a delightful evening! I’ll see you again !
I hired Dennis for strolling magic and deception at my company's Halloween party. He did an excellent job at entertaining and shocking different small groups!
Response from Dennis Christie MD "Master Deceptionist":
It was a pleasure working for Facebook at your Chicago office. We have a bunch of amazing videos and photos to share with you from your event. If you aren't too busy, we could do a quick lunch to discuss your any upcoming events and I can drop off all those pictures/ videos.
Dennis Christie and Jonathan
Dennis did a fabulous job entertaining a large group of young kids (ages 4+), holding their attention for more than 30 minutes! He also thrilled the adults with walk-around card and other tricks. Overall, highly satisfied with the entertainment, and highly recommend! Dennis can modify the show to the age of the audience and that was truly a plus for our event!!
What to Expect
Dennis usually shows up 15 minutes early and leaves about 30 minutes after his performance is finished. Dennis loves to stay and talk with his guests and clients and is always polite and courteous. He will either show up in a purple velvet suit or a designer suit depending on the event. Always super professional and never uses crude language or humor. Dennis often says "I am not interested in people being impressed by my abilities, my primary goal is to leave them with the sense of child-like awe and wonder that we often lose as we become adults. That's the gift of Magic! Illusions are what I do, Magic is what you feel"
With his walk around magic, Dennis will stroll around your event mingling with guests and performing close-up magic for individuals and groups. Dennis will carry on him everything he needs so he will not take up any more space than your average guest. His presence does not interrupt the flow of the event, this works as a great ice breaker while guests arrive and/or provides entertainment throughout the event. He will primarily use a deck of cards and have the guests sign their card and perform amazing illusions with it... but he also performs mentalism and is skilled in many other styles of magic such as coin, rope, comedy and impromptu magic (magic using everyday objects like toothpicks, straws, rubber bands, etc.)
With the full Stage Show, Dennis and other team members will setup sound, camera/ projection screen, illusions, (whatever is needed) and perform a very interactive show for your desired length of time. (15 min - 2 hours) Requiring a room big enough for all of your guests to sit or stand while viewing a performance. Mixing magic with mentalism, your guests will be left astonished as his shows are highly interactive and engaging and often will include 10-20 volunteers. (lots of laughs and lots of people saying "How did he do that?")
Often times people will have Dennis 1st perform walk around magic for a few hours and then a full stage show... the choice is yours!
Dennis has mystified companies such as Great Wolf Lodge, Jones Lang LaSalle, Pandora, The Chicago Bears, multiple Fortune 500 Companies including Facebook, Grainger, Baxter, Abbvie, CDW, and many more. Dennis was the In-house Magician at Key Lime Cove Indoor Waterpark Resort in Gurnee for over 5 years. He has had the privilege of performing at the Historic Civic Opera Building in Chicago, the Historic Woodstock Opera House, skyscrapers, Raised! an Urban Rooftop Bar, Senior Centers, numerous Church functions, and even at charity events like: Cancer Relay for Life & Autism Speaks. His vast skill-set allows him the ability to customize his performance to cater to any type of gathering, including but not limited to, birthday parties, corporate events, weddings, trade shows, city-wide festivals, ticketed stage shows, charity fundraisers, ministry outreaches and any of your special occasions.
Don't just hire any magician, hire a true professional. Someone who will go the extra mile to make sure your event will be remembered for years to come! Dennis is not your typical amateur magician, as he has been pursuing magic as a full-time profession for over a decade. He is one of the best Magicians in all of Illinois and we are in the process of getting him on Penn & Teller: "Fool Us" and America's Got Talent! All of his material is tasteful and although he does get many laughs, it is never at anyone else's expense. Dennis often says "I am not interested in people being impressed by my abilities, my primary goal is to leave them with the sense of child-like awe and wonder that we often lose as we become adults. That's the gift of Magic! Illusions are what I do, Magic is what you feel".
He specializes in close-up magic and mentalism, but is also skilled in many other styles such as coin, rope, stage, comedy and impromptu magic (magic using everyday objects like toothpicks, straws, rubber bands, etc.). Dennis' illusions are visually engaging and are sure to put smiles on your guests faces. He regularly incorporates audience participation as they help to make the magic come to life in their own hands. No one will leave the show without having a great time and everyone will be talking about the show for years . It's not uncommon for us to bump into people years later, who are excited to show us that they are still carrying a signed playing card that he used to perform an illusion with. These memories last a lifetime!
