Speech Descriptions
THE STAND-UP SHOW: 

The Stand-Up show is an interactive comedy magic and mind reading show. Ideal for groups of 20 to 2000, it’s an event that makes the audience the stars of the show. This fast paced energetic display of visual dexterity, wit and psychological mysteries is a show designed for thinking audiences, as everyone becomes a part of the action.

CLOSE-UP MAGIC: 

No stages, no sets, no requirements. Anywhere, anytime. With Close-Up magic intimate miracles for small groups at receptions, pre-dinner functions, and parties where a formal show isn’t the best solution. It is a great ice-breaker as objects vanish, money multiplies, cards change and impossibilities occur, right in your guests’ hand. Mini miracles happen right in front of them.

MASTER OF CEREMONIES:

Need to keep the meeting moving? Using magic, mind reading and illusions, Bill keeps the energy of the general session up over the day or several days. Whether serious or lighthearted speaker introductions, natural topic segues, housekeeping notes, announcing coffee breaks or breakout sessions, the predictability of the meeting is removed, while adding some frequently needed mystery, comedy and relief.

AWARD BANQUETS:

One of the most important events at your conference shouldn’t be lost to boredom. Bill adds dazzle and wit to your award presentations while highlighting the real magicians…the award winners. Whether making the presenters appear magically out of thin air, or using magic to segue smoothly between categories, Bill goes out of his way to ensure that your people are the stars of the evening.

LARGE SCALE ILLUSIONS:

Large scale illusions can add that extra bit of wow. Whether making the CEO magically appear out of thin air, making an audience member float in thin air, turning one executive into another or cutting a competitor in half, larger illusions can add that extra bit of excitement that make it a truly memorable event.

TEAM BUILDING:

That’s right, team building. Bill has come up with a really unique, memorable and fun way to help your organization revitalize morale, increase product knowledge and demonstrate the importance of teamwork. Tell him your goals and he’ll customize a program where your attendees become the magicians!

KEYNOTE PRESENTATION:

“Misdirection” happens to be one of a magician’s most powerful tools and using magic is a great way to teach an audience how not to be misdirected, and focus on the real issues at hand. While in magic you frequently watch one hand while the other hand accomplishes the “magic”. It’s the same in business we frequently miss the complete picture because we are focused on the wrong element. In this fast paced, humorous, magical, customized presentation the audience is shown how to be focused where attention is needed most. The presentation is fast paced, humorous and is tailored for each specific audience.
