“He meant everything to magic; a legend for so many years.”- Siegfried & Roy
John Calvert is the epitome of a “living legend.” He has not only lived beyond the over 90 mark, but is also constantly working and still has the handsome look of a movie star. He has criss-crossed the world many times and his real life adventures pale the likes of Indiana Jones. He traveled his big illusion revue in his own plane; and later, in his fabulous yacht that he christened “Magic Castle.” His life story reads like a novel, and he has fascinating tales of the Hollywood Legends, the Broadway Stages, the upper crest of American Society and of course, all the ‘Greats' of magic that he has long outlived. He has taken his full evening magic show , “Magicarama” around the world and has broken every major box office record. In fact, his stage production holds the distinction of being the longest running world-touring magic extravaganza in theatrical history. He has made an incredible 20,000 personal appearances on stage and distinguished himself as an actor in Hollywood. He has appeared in over 40 films including the series known as “The Falcon.”
John recently celebrated his 93rd birthday and was recently given a tribute by the top magicians in Las Vegas. He continues to be an inspiration to new generations of audiences, performing and lecturing with incredible energy and enthusiasm. This night will be more than a lecture, as John will perform his “Magicarma Spectacular Magic Show,” which will feature some of his signature effects such as “Casper the Dancing Handkerchief,” and “The Spirit Cabinet.”
John's lecture will not only have secrets of magic, but also include ideas on:
* How to become a magician
* How to build an act
* Finesse of presentations
* Create and choose illusions
* Select assistants
* Finance and operate a world tour
* How to obtain a sponsorship
* Create publicity stunts for television, newspapers and radio
* Conduct an advertising campaign
* and much, much more!
Recipient to the Society of American Magicians Hall of Fame; Chavez Memorial Cup; Performing Fellowship and Masters Achievement Award; Magic Circle's David Devant Award and the Magic Collector's Association Award, John Calvert is one of the most loved and respected magicians in the history of magic!
Do not miss your opportunity to spend an evening with a living legend!
John Calvert will be in San Francisco for ONE NIGHT ONLY!!!
