Medium Illusion Show:  20 – 60 Minutes in duration.

The medium-sized illusion shows vary based on your needs including time, space, and budget.  The medium sized shows are our most popular choices as they all include:  the dove act, audience participation, amazing close up magic, at least one large illusion (big box with lovely assistant), and the snowing tribute.

We bring everything we need to be successful including our own sound system and microphones.  This is an amazing show that we can perform in your living room, at your community center, in a theatre, or on the back patio!

Cost for this show depends on how many illusions (big boxes) you select  which illusions are chosen as some require more assistants to perform than others.


Anthony, the MAGIC’s 55-Gallon Drum Water Escape Show!!

This impressive escape can be added to almost any show.  Anthony the MAGIC is one of the only escape artists in the world currently performing the 55-Gallon Drum live.  The audience will be on the edge of their seat as one of the audience members comes on-stage to personally inspect the drum.  This audience member will stay on stage and help to secure Anthony into the Drum where he will attempt to free himself from hand-cuffs and padlocks before their very eyes.  This is not for the faint of heart.


Adult Parlour Show:  Comedy & Magic!!

This show is perfect for intimate settings when there may not be enough room for the big illusion show.  The Parlour Show can be performed anywhere from your living room to the big stage.

The Adult Parlour Show includes: the dove act, sleight of hand, audience participation, big laughs, and the snowing tribute.  Anthony will include your guests by using items from their own purses and pockets, and he will leave them scratching their heads and saying, “How did he do that?”

Strolling Magic and Sleight of Hand Performances

The perfect icebreaker during your reception hour to get the crowd mingling.  Anthony the Magic will walk around performing close-up magic and slight of hand using just a bit of stand-up comedy to entertain your guests while they are checking in.  Perfect for restaurants when they are “backed up” a bit!
(2 hour window)
