FEATURING WES MATHISON
Wes Mathison is a member of the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA where he is a regular performer. He is one of the youngest members to have performed in all of the main showrooms, astounding audiences of all ages. He has entertained the guests of the Getty House for the Mayor of Los Angeles, and worked with Regal Cinemas to promote the new film “Now You See Me 2.” Originally based in LA, Wes decided to bring his magic to the beautiful city of Chicago where he has already performed on the legendary Stage 773. Wes has been enthralled by magic ever since he was a young child. His passion for the art has taken him around the world to places such as Italy where he attended the 2015 World Olympics of Magic (FISM) to study under some of the world’s most legendary magicians. In 2017 he was the first magician to perform at the Adishakti Acting Laboratory and Sri Aurobindo Ashram school in Pondicherry, India. Wes consistently thrills a wide array of audiences including elementary schools, high schools, college campus events, Churches, Miller Children’s Hospital, private parties, and country clubs. Just one show and you'll see why Wes Mathison is one of the most talented young magicians of our time.
