Due to Covid-19 all of my in person performances have been carefully reworked to minimize physical contact and virtually eliminate the possibility for spread of infectious disease.
Why do magicians use playing cards? Glad you asked!
Playing cards are the most versatile prop available to a magician. They have been called "the poetry of magic" (Hofzinser) and hold within their 52 unique identities the ability to mesmerize and amaze without limits. Virtually every type of magical effect, from visual illusions to mental and paranormal mysteries, can be presented using this everyday household object. My card magic is improvisational and jazzy in style, backed by over a decade of education in technical sleight-of-hand and misdirection.
Is mentalism real?
Yes and No. Mentalism also sometimes called “mind reading” is a branch of magic that deals with illusions of the mind. The mentalist uses his knowledge of human psychology, suggestion, and devious magic based methods to create startling demonstrations of phenomena such as precognition, telepathy, and mind control. Mentalism, when performed by an expert, is incredibly powerful and feels like more than “just a trick.” But is it? Many modern mentalists claim their feats are accomplished by reading body language or using their sharp mental acuity to deduce and extrapolate information. However, while these skills can be developed over time and are the basis of many mental effects, bold diabolical trickery also plays its role. (don’t tell anyone)
“We hired Harrison to do strolling magic at my father's 75th birthday party in NYC. It was a cocktail party for 35 people at a private home. He was a HUGE hit. Harrison was so easy to work with, arrived early, did a great job reading the crowd and really wowed everyone. The next day everyone was talking about the tricks trying to figure out how in the world he did them! I highly recommend Harrison!”
“Harrison entertained 55 guests at my home. He has a magnetic personality that is as amazing as his wizardry! His talent is extraordinary. He works his way through the room effortlessly and engages everyone with whom he speaks. I CANNOT RECOMMEND HIM ENOUGH! He is a gentleman, and a lovely person who has a passion for his special talent. It was exciting just to observe his enthusiasm. Your party will be THE PARTY that everyone will be discussing. Thank you Harrison for making my event so successful.”
