CarneyMagic is a theatre show that blends mind-blowing sleight of hand with intelligence, taste, and wit, into a unique evening of pure entertainment.
This is definitely NOT your typical “magic show”. Carney’s approach is smart, engaging, and often hilarious.
Pin-balling between jaunty comedic riffs and astonishing sleight of hand,
Carney will have you reeling with his hilarious audience participation segments, as well as his embodiment of multiple characters.
More than a theater show • More than a magic show
Regarded by his peers as one of the top sleight of hand performers in the world, Carney has won more awards from Hollywood’s Magic Castle than anyone in their history, as well as the Academy of Magical Arts prestigious Masters Performing Fellowship.
Unique .. Funny … Amazing … Theatrical
You won’t see any big boxes, tigers, dancing girls, or lasers.
Just a quirky, likable guy, cracking-wise and doing some pretty amazing things
… and all the while, you’ll be laughing yourself silly.
CarneyMagic is a show that will amaze you,
as it charms and delights.
ADULT SMART • FAMILY FRIENDLY
CarneyMagic is not a kiddie show!
Best for ages 8 and older.
“High Energy … Combines magic tightly and inventively with his comedy”
Knocking em’ dead … Personable and funny … Got you laughing as much as mystified”
“… smart, engaging, and hilarious … Carney has the knack and charisma to delight us in a spectacle we all crave … amazing surprises in store throughout every moment of the show. ”
THE TOLUCAN TIMES
Artistic Director Reviews
… the commercial appeal exceeded our expectations, and we sold the theater to capacity.
The reception was overwhelmingly enthusiastic, and John received a well-deserved standing ovation.
John’s thoughtful script, his embodiment of several characters, his theatrical flair,
and his amazing sleight of hand filled the stage, and brought forth a tremendous response from our patrons.
The Colony Theatre Company
I wholeheartedly recommend CarneyMagic … Carney’s engagement here was successful on many levels,
and I was proud to present it … an intellectually robust theatrical performance.
KPC rarely books magic shows for their own sake, but the sophistication and aesthetics of Carney’s show sets it apart.
Kirkland Performance Center
I found John Carney’s performance a breath of fresh air. CarneyMagic isn’t your typical “magic show”… it’s a theatrical experience. Part stage play, part comedy show, and a heavy dose of audience amazement. Audience feedback was incredibly positive. John is a gracious performer with a definite command of his craft and his audience. I’d be happy to sing his praises to anyone who reaches out

It was our great pleasure to have CarneyMagic here for two nights. Both performances sold out and the audiences were enthusiastically entertained by the magic and the comedy. We look forward to a return engagement.
