The John Sturk Challenge

  • Chicago Magic Lounge 5050 North Clark Street Chicago, IL, 60640 United States (map)

Bar - Tableside - Stage - Emcee - Music - Dishes - 654 Club...Can John Sturk do it all in one night? Is it even humanly possible?

In a feat of endurance not even accomplished by David Blaine, the affable John Sturk will attempt the John Sturk Challenge on Thursday, September 20, 2018 from 5:00 PM - 10:30 PM. 

John will attempt to perform in each position at CML in the same night: starting with two hours performing behind the bar, moving to tableside performances in the cabaret, emceeing the stage show and presenting the feature act while running lights, sound, and the curtain, then playing the keyboard accompaniment for the headliner.

After the show, John will join the crew in cleaning up the Cabaret by running the dishwashing station while the 654 Club show takes place. 

Afterwards, John will take the stage in the 654 Club for a special, members-only show. Be there to watch John cross the finish line of this magical marathon!
