From the elegant theatres of Times Square to the streets of Morocco, Ben’s award-winning magic has been “blowing minds” in nearly every type of venue and atmosphere imaginable.
Ben became interested in magic at the age of eight and began astounding his peers soon after. By the age of eleven, he was being hired to entertain at local parties; by middle school, Ben’s magic was being featured on national television. He soon joined his local Society of American Magicians as their only non-adult member and took first place in the club’s annual magic competition, all before he was even old enough to drive.
In addition to his training in magic, Ben has studied with McCarter Theatre, The School For Film and Television, Mercer County Performing Arts High School, and Marymount Manhattan College, majoring in theatre. His diverse training has led him to successful ongoing stints as a magic instructor, sleight of hand consultant for theatre and film, and annual guest lecturer at Princeton University. By combining his diverse talents, Ben is able to create a theatrical, high energy, fun, and unforgettable performance every time he hits the stage.
STAGE & PARLOR
Ben’s award winning magic has been the hit of many gatherings. Whether your event is a corporate group of twenty or an auditorium of hundreds, Ben’s magic plays BIG. His upbeat, funny show not only entertains audiences of all ages, but also incorporates them into the show. Imagine your friends, colleagues or attendees of your event not only participating from their seats, but being brought up onstage and actually doing the magic. Choose from Ben’s one-man show, or ask him to bring along a lovely assistant! From mind reading to large scale illusions, applause and laughter, you will be left with a show that will never be forgotten.
CLOSE UP & STROLLING
Ben’s strolling magic is perfect for nearly any occasion. He has been seen at luxurious cocktail parties, family barbecues, corporate events, restaurants, and even the streets of New York City. This type of intimate magic is different than any other, because the magic happens up close to the people watching. Sometime, the magic even happens in the spectators’ hands. When a formal “show” might not be appropriate for the desired setting of your event, surely strolling magic will complement the atmosphere.
