Edd Fairman, Wizard of Sorts, has been called a “circus unto himself” by the Pittsburgh Post Gazette and “fiercely likable” by Pulp Magazine. Known for his off beat presentation and wry sense of humor, Edd tours the country performing for universities and corporate audiences. Edd was named Runner up in the Chicago Reader's Best of 2015 poll for Magicians in Chicago.
THE CLOSE-UP GALLERY featuring Craig Newman
Craig J. Newman is a Chicago based magician who has been studying the art of magic for more than 14 years. He has performed for private events, consulted for stage shows, demonstrated at Magic Inc., and helped edit two books on the subject; McCombial: The Wit and Wisdom of Billy McComb, and BETCHA! How to Win Free Drinks for Life by Simon Lovell. He is truly humbled now to be a performer at The Chicago Magic Lounge where his honest and skeptical approach to magic delights audiences.
Inspired by the legendary Magic Castle in LA, and Magic Circle in London, we are bringing you an exclusive, 50 seats only, experience called the Close Up Gallery. Join a magician in the Starlight Lounge at 10pm for an intimate look at close-up magic. No stage, just a table and 50 chairs. This is a peek into the real world of classic, close-up, table magic.
Premium and Deluxe Ticket holders are guaranteed a seat in the Close-Up Gallery.
