Raised in a show business family—both of his parents were clowns with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey—Spencer Horsman has been performing since learning his first magic trick at age 4. An escape artist in the vein of Houdini, Horsman dazzles audiences with hair's-breadth breakouts from dangerous contraptions, distracting nail-biting show-goers with laughter from his self-deprecating wit and charming onstage banter.
His daring feats were recently featured on America's Got Talent, where he won unanimous "yes" votes from the judges for escaping a straightjacket while suspended upside-down between a spring-loaded spike trap that was only secured by a rapidly burning rope.
Illusions Bar and Theater
Even if they were not apprised beforehand, guests at Illusions Bar and Theater would quickly realize that they were in no ordinary watering hole when they noticed the straightjacket suspended above the small stage behind the bar. Far from the state's only psych ward with a liquor license, the venue is the brainchild of former clown and showbiz veteran Ken Horsman.
Typical evenings see patrons sipping on fine spirits while gaping at a show by Ken’s son, escape artist Spencer Horsman, as he wriggles his way free from increasingly secure restraints and dangerous situations, all while tickling ribs with playful banter. Other magicians regularly stop by to show off their illusions, wowing audiences and deepening the depression of real wizards who can't get anyone to believe in their powers.
