On several occasions, I have wandered the crowded street-fair streets of Durango, CO -- a street replete with sound stages, wandering jugglers, dancers doing their thing -- and been delighted to see the folks crowding around Mysto the Magi when he sets up and performs his feats of magic. He involves the crowd, he entertains the crowd, he wows the crowd, and the kids crowd up to the front ("Pick me!" "How'd he DO that?"....etc). His is a complete Magician's show and fast-paced surprises. How DID he do that, I find myself wondering! Furthermore, I've seen him at various festivals over the years, and his act draws the crowd in (and away from other concurrent events). He's fast-paced and plays on the Sense of Wonder.
I saw Mysto's magic show in Denver a few weeks back. My girlfriend and I were both very impressed. It was a small venue and I was honored to be able to join him onstage to make a table float. And that blew me away. He had some great tricks onstage that I have never seen, and even did some wondeful card tricks for us after the show (advantage of a small venue). He followed a few comics who were, well, OK, but it seems that without even trying Mysto blew them away in the comedy department.
Mysto performed at my wedding and brought the house down with both his humor and his expertise in magic. I've also seen him perform on several other occasions. He has a special talent for feeding off of the audience's reactions and involving everyone in the fun. He switches effortlessly between close up magic and stage illusions, and can do a show appropriate and riotous for any age group. Highly recommended!
Mysto performed in our little showroom at the Magic & Juggling Shop a few years ago in Albuquerque. His magic and presentation is very entertaining AND he is extremely good with the audience. Highly recommended!

Mysto the Magi began his performing career at the age of twelve as “Mitch the Magician” when he performed for the daughter of a local policeman in his hometown of Lexington, Massachusetts. The little girl got so excited by Mysto’s performance that she had an asthma attack and had to be given oxygen. After that experience Mysto decided “I must be good!” He quickly became one of the most popular children’s magicians in the area and at the age of fourteen performed a benefit show for the Cancer Society where he first performed on a real stage at the middle school for over 300 people. He floated a girl from the audience.
While most of his classmates in college were flipping burgers, Mysto performed street magic, birthday shows and nightclubs in and around Austin, Texas. After graduation he “hit the road” with his show performing at Street Fairs and Renaissance Festivals. In 1990 he returned to compete in the Texas Association of Magicians Convention in Dallas where he won both Best Stage Magician and Best Close up Magician. Mysto is the only magician to ever win both awards in the same year.
Since then, Mysto has performed almost every style of magic in almost every venue imaginable. From humble birthday, school and library shows, to restaurants, nightclubs, corporate banquets, music and arts festivals, magic conventions, to Hollywood movies, commercials, theaters, and performing arts centers.
His newest show Mysto’s Magic Spectacular takes all his experience and expertise to bring you the very best show he has ever created. Along with veteran performers Michael “the catch it quick” Juggler, dancers Talia Bamerick and Erica Golightly they have created a tour de force ensemble that brings out the talents of every player. This show is not just magic, but includes magical plays, excellent dancing, aerial performance, glow poi spinning, juggling, clowning, stage illusions and is just basically a whole lot of fun for everyone involved, especially the audience.
This show has successfully been performed for all adult audiences as well as mixed family audiences. While most performances have been in theaters seating 200-300 people it has been successfully done for a packed house of 800 people.
