Seven regional masters of illusion convene to baffle delighted audiences in the Maniacs of Magic show. Affable cut-up Roman Garcia, seen most Fridays on KENS 5’s Great Day SA, plays ringmaster to an eclectic cast of charmers and enchanters, each with a talent of pulling the wool over the naked eye. Alexander the Greatest regales the crowd with card-deck stratagems and his ability to pull coins out of the ears of George Washington quarters. Jonah Garcia translates his street tricks to the stage, and Doug Gorman performs parlor magic with mystical trinkets such as silver cups and carnival dice. Puppets spring to life in the hands of ventriloquist Joe Libby, and John O’Bryant, known by his maiden name, The Magic Dork, performs inspirational and educational trickery. Comedian Tim St. John splits sides with unscripted antics and has been recognized for his ability to escape a straitjacket while riding a unicycle. Concluding the mirthful marathon of mystery, slight-of-hand card mechanic Richard Turner, The Cheat, shows audiences how to get stalked by Vegas pit bosses.
Although Cameo Theater offers a discount for children’s tickets, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
