I’ve got shelves in my office filled with things that I’ve collected during my travels. But the most valuable collection I have is my collection of stories. On July 10, I’ll be sharing many of these stories and performing the amazing magic that goes along with many of them. The event will be at Shadowbox Live’s Backstage Bistro on Wednesday, July 10. I hope to see you there.
THIS SATURDAY, I’ll be taking a night off from my current run in “The Best of Shadowbox Live” to participate in a drink-making competition as part of Digfest in Grandview, OH. The competition, brought to you by Drink Up Columbus, will be reminiscent of the TV Show “Chopped” where contestants will mix supplied ingredients to attempt to make the best drink. Anyone who was around during my successful batch-mixing of “The Red Death” or “The Purple Death” tailgating drinks in college will know what to expect out of this situation. I’ll be competing against two friends of mine, Editor of 614 Magazine, Travis Hoewischer and local personality, Johnny DiLoretto. It should be a very fun event! Hope to see you there!
“Magic is a tricky business. To most, there are two kinds of magicians: the best one they’ve ever seen . . . or absolutely terrible.
If a magician can get a laugh out of his audience, however, they’re given a pass for not making the Statue of Liberty cry tigers. For years, Hilliard’s own Michael Kent has grabbed the attention of college students all over the country with his hipper version of the traditionally kiddie/campy artform, and this year his talent has earned him a national nod with a nomination for Entertainer of the Year in Campus Activities Magazine.” Read the rest of the article here.
Two exciting things going on at the end of this month!
FREE BEER TOUR
Starts April 28!
Columbus’s Dimensional Entertainment (Corey Montie) has once again devised an original, fun and outrageous event series that will keep you and your friends talking about it for months to come.
The idea is this: We teach you crazy, impossible, and funny tricks you can do at a bar to con your friends out of a beer. Simple as that. It’s a fun way to liven up any night out and even make some new friends!
