"Testimonial #3"

"All of the students that came to the show really had a good time and are still wondering how you pulled off many our your tricks. It's always great to find some variety in our entertainment which, without a doubt, you were able to provide." - Student Activities Coordinators - Wabash College

"Testimonial #2"

"Magic Brian returned, seizing hold of the stage and crowd with his Chris Farley-esque energy minus about 200 pounds. Armed with wagon loads of charisma and stiletto sharp wit, Brian picked out a member of the audience, turned her into a complete joke in the name of a card trick that included blind folds, chest groping and Brian with his pants around his knees at one point. Upping the ante, Brian threw caution and fear of salmonella to the wind as the finished his set with the bloody decapitation and re-capitation of a chicken for a folk tale re-enactment that had the crowd in an uproar." - Derrick Prince


"To sum up Magic Brian’s show is proof that the words “hilarious“,“risky“,“skillful“ and “no, don’t tell me he’s gonna….yep, hes done it” can go together." - Conor McCarthy





Thousands of audiences around the world have been entertained with Magic Brian’s outrageous and unique comedy-magic and sideshow act. He began performing with a partner as the comedy magic duo
of Abra and Cadabra. Since then he branched out with his solo show and has performed in 16 countries, worked the sideshow stage of New York’s famous Coney Island Sideshow, and appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman. He has appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe and Adelaide Fringe festivals, The Melbourne International Comedy Festival, The Street Performers World Championships as well as festivals throughout Canada and Europe.

Magic Brian was presented with the Sideshow Preservation Award at the annual Sideshow Gathering in 2005, he won the People’s Choice award for Best Performer in Canada in 2006, and for Best Act in Germany in 2011.

Performing street, stage and close-up magic, his original and eclectic repertoire ranges from the miraculous production of an impossible amount of sponge bunnies out of thin air to an unbelievable escape from a straitjacket and chains. He makes objects disappear and re- appear in strange and unusual places, and you can also find him swallowing razor blades, eating light bulbs and hammering nails into his head. And yes, this is what he does for a living!

Magic Brian incorporates the old with the new – using inspiration from circus sideshow acts as well as classic magic effects, then adding his own unique and humorous twist to it all. His goal: to make people
laugh and smile, and maybe even soil themselves.
