We booked Ryan to come share his magic with my 6 year old and his friends for his Wizard themed party. Ryan kept their attention and mesmerized the crew with his talents. He was very interactive and even brought a big balloon bunch to hand one to each of the kids as they volunteered for him. He was very professional and was extremely accommodating and easy to work with. We highly recommend Ryan to entertain at any of your events!
Price Range: $300 and up.
Gig Length: 30 - 60 minutes
What to Expect
The most entertaining, hilarious, surprising, and impossible hour of your life.
Ryan’s show is modeled after the elegant and charming parlor magic shows of the late 19th century. No sawing anyone in half, or pulling rabbits out of hats! Ryan has earned a reputation for his mastery of sleight of hand magic. Everything in his show can be done with ordinary objects, sometimes borrowed from the spectator, and his own two hands. His expert control of manipulation and misdirection always leaves his audience amazed.
Ryan will read your mind, predict the future, perform dangerous and unusual feats, make borrowed objects disappear and reappear in the most mysterious places, impress you with his award winning card magic, and if you’re lucky even make a chicken appear!
Audience participation is frequently used so everyone can get a chance to view the magic up close.
