He blew my mind with magic, but he was also funny!
I've seen Dave perform a couple times at clubs and private parties. He's tremendous - engaging with the audience, supremely talented, and humorous to boot. Highly recommend him for any type of performance where his unique combination of magic and comedy will appeal to a crowd!

What to Expect
What does Dave Johnson give you at your event?
It all depends what you want.
Would you like a magician to stroll throughout the audience and blow their minds with expert sleight of hand? Perhaps he should give them a DEMONSTRATION OF COUNTING CARDS IN BLACKJACK THAT HIGHLIGHTS HIS INSTANT PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORY and in most cases ends in one of them asking to take him to Vegas (which he always politely declines as he goes there for work enough)… Maybe he will make your company, organization or guest of honor's name appear on the side of a deck of cards as he SHUFFLES THEM INTO ORDER IN THREE SHUFFLES. Those are some highlights of the close up experiences that Dave gives his audiences.
What if you want to have everyone entertained at the same time? Comedy magic and mentalism combined in front of a crowd brings scenes of:
• Predictions coming true
• Controlling outcomes by controlling minds
• Onstage hospitality to the nth degree
• Solving a Rubik's Cube without looking after memorizing it in 10 seconds
• A "standing ovation" every time
• Interaction with the audience on a level that pushes the envelope of everything.
• And much, much more
Here is what some others have said:
"I threw a party for the founders of the top internet companies, from Dropbox to AirBNB to Square, and all of them were blown away by Dave's magic. Many of them told me afterwards it made the evening for them. Founders of tech companies are tough to fool, and all were left wondering about Dave's tricks."
