As seen on David Letterman's Late Show

Carney is a theatre show that blends mind-blowing sleight of hand with intelligence, taste, and wit, into unique evening of pure entertainment. This is definitely NOT your typical "magic" show. Carney's approach is smart, engaging, and often hilarious.

The show includes a variety of selections from John's repertoire, including his portrayal of several different characters, along with audience participation and lots of laughs. This is a show that will amaze you, as it charms and delights.

Carney is family friendly, but not a kiddie show.
Recommended for ages 8 and up.


"High Energy ... Combines magic tightly and inventively with his comedy"


"Knocking em’ dead ... Personable and funny ... Got you laughing as much as mystified"
