A native of Plymouth, MI, John Sturk has been performing at the Chicago Magic Lounge since its inception, as a co-founder and Artistic Director. Often seen behind the piano at the Lounge, John steps on-stage or behind the bar to present his unique brand of close-up magic. John has performed for audiences ranging from elementary students to corporate clients - but is perhaps best known for his stint at a full-time street performer.
John currently serves as Chicago chapter president for the Society of American Magicians, as well as on the S.A.M. National Council. John is also a member of the Academy of Magic Arts and the International Brotherhood of Magicians.
John is a graduate of Michigan State University, and currently resides in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago.
