Schools closed for the rest of the semester, hours of online learning, and no one to talk to but your parents. In short… this is about to be the longest few months of our lives. 


As we grapple with our new normal, our human needs remain the same: we need community, mental and physical activity, and something to keep our spirits up. But how do we achieve all of this when we aren’t even supposed to leave our homes?

creating campus community… online

No one is better at creating community than students; all they need is someone to show them the way! Let me be your guide in making memories your entire student body can share, even if they’re flung across the country.

I’m combining my signature magic with my TV/FILM experience to bring you virtual shows LIVE from my new studio (aka, a former guest room in my home), created from the ground up!

These will be LIVE events, customized for your student body. Interact with me during the show! Ask questions – we’re all in this together, even if we have to be physically apart.


Fun, Interactive Games & Prizes for Students to Enjoy & Unwind

From your favorite comedy magician, speaker, and two-time magician of the year comes a fun, ‘customized-to-your-campus’ virtual game show. Designed specifically for a livestream audience with enticing prizes, this show is a sure-fire hit with your quarantined, sitting-at-home, give-me-something-to-do student body!

This show combines the fast paced fun of HQ Trivia, the popularity of Twitch, and incorporates some of my signature magic. When students join the party, I will entertain and set the tone with amazing sleight-of-hand — some of which aren’t even seen in my college shows. Following the magic, students will become the contestants in several game shows designed to make them feel connected, build a sense of community, and have a ton of fun! And it will all be tailored to your school, including questions about your campus, student life, and more!

Did we mention prizes? There will be prizes sent to the cleverest, the funniest, and the most knowledgeable of your students! It’s a full length program that will leave you asking yourselves… “Are you smarter than a zoombomber?”

W&B&Q is a brand new show designed specifically for the COVID-19 crisis.

All the issues we’re dealing with now, I’ve already dealt with in my career as a magician. I’m talking about the isolation, the fears about money, not knowing what my situation would be in a few weeks or a few months…

…and I have coping mechanisms that ANYONE can learn and benefit from.

This show is one part entertainment, one part learning program.

First, I’ll bust your stress by making you gasp and laugh at my magic and comedy. I’ll even show you magic that I would never be able to bring to your campus, including my animals, large illusions and even an assistant or two.

Next, I’ll talk to you about my experiences as a student and how they relate to what we’re dealing with now, and teach you some strategies and techniques to get you through your tough days. Don’t worry; there’s plenty of magic in this part, too. 

Again, this will be a LIVE event — no pre-recorded shows — customized for your student body. Interact with me during the show! Ask questions – we’re all in this together, even if we have to be physically apart.

BONUS offers


To make this accessible to as many students as possible, I’m offering a MASSIVE discount on this livestreamed show.

And, because this show is so different from my touring shows, I’ll discount any show on your campus next semester. I still want to perform for you in person when things normalize.


Following the main presentation, students will receive info on how to participate in regular livestreams. This will include additional exercises on how to cope with stress, more magic, behind-the-scenes looks on magic development, magic teach-ins, interactive activities, anything to keep us going during this time!

And I’ll do it until this whole quarantine thing is over!

What are you waiting for?

let’s make boring disappear today!
