In Pursuit of The Impossible

0

“What if magic is real?”  It’s a question that local entrepreneur, Joel DeWyer, has been asking himself for most of his life.  Tapping into over 25 years of experience as a magician, DeWyer uses his refined skills of sleight-of-hand and playful deception to explore this idea, albeit, in ways audiences often don’t expect.  DeWyer is part of a new wave of performers, shifting the paradigm of the modern magician.  “Forget the coin behind the ear or feather flowers from nowhere, my objective is total wonder and astonishment,” he confidently claims.

Organizations and individuals most often seek out DeWyer’s services when they want to add something unique, yet sophisticated to their event, whether that’s a corporate gathering, a social networking function, a private dinner party, or a formal celebration, such as a wedding reception.  DeWyer’s relaxed approach and charming, professional style, make it easy to adapt what he does to comfortably fit almost any gathering or situation.  “For many of us, our limited experience of magic has been some goofy trick mixed in with a lot of bad jokes and cheesy humor – sometimes that works.  I offer a more refined approach, creating impossible moments for my clients and making sure their guests remember the event for a long time to come.”
