"That Magic Kid"
I am so excited to announce my book of magic that is available now at Amazon.com, BarnesAndNoble.com and BooksAMillion.com as well as at any of my live shows! The book contains a lot of magic you can learn and perform yourself with everyday objects like: rubber bands, pencils, money, paper and balloons. It features a short biography on how I got my start performing as well as several photos with some of my good friends. There's something for everyone ages 8 thru 108!
I hope you will like it!

Winter Carnival Of Magic

Pigeon Forge, TN
One of the best conventions around in terms of talent and organization. This is hosted each year by the IBM Ring out of Knoxville TN and a lot of my magical friends are there every year. Plus its not too far from where I live.
It is early in the season before summer and I always get great ideas and inspiration from the lectures and performers.
This year, I plan to enter my first ever competition (I am usually too busy to plan a routine). It will be something very classic, but with a very modern and amazing twist...maybe I will post a video afterward.

I just got back form an exciting conference in Pigeon Forge, TN. At the conference I performed a new Halloween Themed routine I call "BOO!" After the performance I explained the thoughts behind the routine and how I created the props. It was a little scary for me since the audience was made up primarily of magicians (many who I have known and respected for years!). Over the summer I attended a few Magic Conferences and had my first official visit to the Magic Castle in Hollywood, California! It was an awesome experience that I hope to repeat again sometime. So many great magicians have passed through those doors and hallways, you can almost feel the history there!
I have been working on a lot of new material to enhance my show and bring it up a notch or two. My dad and I have been building new props and working on routines. I have also been in discussions for some pretty big upcoming shows. However, I only post confirmed and contracted dates on this page. At any given time we may be working to book 3 or 4 shows, so keep checking back! I try and post new shows and things I am working on regularly on my Facebook and often posts photos and videos there. The link below will help you find "That Magic Kid" on Facebook, please like the page to keep up with the latest!
One of my custom original routines, "Hiking trip in A Box" I created just for Scouting, was published in "Linking Ring" a major international magic magazine recently. I shared it with the magic community so that others could benefit from this wonderful routine and customized props for Scouting Groups in their regions. I actually had another routine published in the same issue. Pretty exciting as this was the first time I had a routine (much less 2 routines) and illusion published.
I should start putting some Christmas shows up pretty soon, so stay tuned!
Thanks to some really great people in magic (some of which have remained anonymous to me) I have added about 50 thousand dollars of new large illusions to my inventory...while also filling up my parents garage (sorry mom and dad)!
Come out and see one of my larger shows and you may get to see some of these special illusions. A few of them have magical histories from other classic shows of the past. Including "Le Grand David" the Guinness Book Record holder for longest running magic show, as well as a few props from the shows of some of my mentors and friends.
Thanks to everyone who believes in That Magic Kid!

Colin's interest in magic came at a very young age. His first show was at the invitation of his Cub Scout Master at age 6 after Colin shared a few illusions with his Den. Since that time, Colin has performed in a variety of places and added many more tricks and illusions to his resume.
Audiences young and old have been amazed with his illusions at events ranging from birthday and block parties, restaurants and meetings to even performing on Cruise Ships and the Las Vegas Strip! Colin loves to interject humor with his "mystery" for a combination that leaves everyone wanting more. Not only does Colin enjoy creating new effects or re-mastering old favorites, he also enjoys watching, meeting and learning from other magicians.
Colin launched his own Magic Set, exclusively available at this website as well as in person at his appearances. The illusions included are a selection of favorites he has performed throughout the years. The sets are great for kids as young as 6, and have enough routines to learn and enjoy through adult ages.
Colin has been elected into The Society Of American Magicians, The International Magicians Society as well as The International Brotherhood of Magicians . Colin is also a member of KIDabra (The Association of KIDshow and Family Performers).
