HEADLINING STAGE ACT

JONNY ZAVANT

Rumored to have performed for someone whose name rhymes with George Flukas, moderately attractive magician James Sanden doesn't need to rely on his average looks to entertain his audience. His wide ranging talents have lead to appearances at events for Dominos, Disney and as second lobster in his 6th grade nativity play. Whether your preferred search engine is Google or Yahoo, you can be confident James has performed for both. Feel free to tell Joey, our producer, he's your favorite.

FEATURED STAGE ACT

PATRICK LIVINGSTONE

Patrick first learned about magic when he discovered an old family photo inside a large golden chalice, known as The Vase of Rismar. Once Patrick realized that his great uncle was a professional vaudeville magician, he became enchanted with the world of magic and has continued to grow in the family art. Since then Patrick has honed his craft and takes pride in leveraging deeper theatrical elements into every piece he presents. Trained in acting and storytelling by the Second City Chicago and under the modern master magician, Eugene Burger, Patrick performs regularly with The Cabaret Project, Chicago Magic Lounge and across the country. In 2017 Patrick opened his new show “Arsenic & Old Magic” at The Athenaeum Theater.

THE 654 CLUB PERFORMER

DAVID PARR

David Parr is an acclaimed magician who has devoted his life to sharing the experience of mystery with audiences around the world. Magic fans will recognize David from his appearance on the hit TV show Penn & Teller: Fool Us, where he not only took home the coveted Fool Us trophy, but also won a guest spot in Penn & Teller’s show at the Rio hotel in Las Vegas! David created and costarred in Chicago’s longest-running weekly magic show, The Magic Cabaret, which was chosen by the Travel Channel as one of the top nine magic shows in the nation! (Because top-ten lists are so passé.) When David is not busy mystifying guests at corporate functions, private events, or Hollywood’s prestigious Magic Castle, he devotes his time to original shows such as Haunting History at the Evanston History Center, or The Magic Hour at the Brumder Masion in Milwaukee.
