What you'll do
(*This event is priced per household/device so your whole family is welcome) This experience is a magic show that takes place in my home. I like to think of it as a “backstage” tour. We’ll warm up with some interactive magic tricks where you’ll follow my instructions and use items in your own homes to fool yourselves. Then I’ll show you my favorite books and magic gadgets and tell you funny stories about their authors and creators. You might get a glimpse at the latest wacky project in my workshop or find out how I handle everyday tasks with a magical flourish. Finally, I’ll settle down at my practice table and put on a show of sleight-of-hand magic performed extremely close-up. Right from where you are, you’ll be able to pick cards, check my sleeves, and shuffle the deck. And you’re guaranteed the best seat in the house. (NB while you will learn one simple magic trick, this experience is primarily a show and not a class.)

Hi. I’m Noah, a member of the Atlas Obscura community. I’m a professional magician who has been working in New York City for 10 years. For the past five years, I've performed my show, Magic After Hours, twice a week at the oldest magic store in the city. I'm also a featured performer at Speakeasy Magick at NYC’s Mckittrick Hotel. I love all things magic. I’ve translated a number of books about magic and have taught it in hospitals, veterans centers, and juvenile detention centers.
