Back To Work

Conference Season Starts again I go back to work today, as much as performing can be compared to work.  It’s something I love, so I rarely label it “work”.  The fact remains I go back to performing at noon today.  A conference for insurance executives. I’...

Marvyn’s Magic Theatre

It’s cold in my part of Canada.  Toronto is always ugly this time of year with snow and frozen hell. Its depressing for me. My car was covered in ice this weekend past and chiselling it out was near impossible.  The poor beast may as well have been encased in carbonite.  Thank god I don’t owe money to the Hutts. Still, I’m better off than Calgary today where its -37.  ...

Comedy Show

I have a fondness for Winnipeg.  The city is fun and I have friends who live there who are always a blast to hang out with, it has a thriving arts scene and a world class comedy festival. True, Winnipeg also reaches temperatures of minus 33 in the winter, as I witnessed on a recent trip in December while performing a...

Air Canada

I fly A LOT. I fly more than just about anyone I know, with the exception of other entertainers who work for my agent. My record is 180 thousand miles in a year, slightly less than the distance from the earth to the moon. This year I broke that record. I just returned from performing at a corporate event in Winnipeg, Manitoba. A holiday party to be accurate...

Entertaining in the Heat

If I were a character in the Rankin Bass holiday classic A Year Without a Santa Claus, I’d without question be heat miser.  If you’re not familiar with them, here’s the famous song introducing the characters.  My brother and I would sing this every dec...

Koningsdam fun on Holland America

I’ve been absent again for some time.  I know, it’s becoming a theme, but the upside is no one reads this, so google if you’re listening, I’m sorry. I just returned from performing on Holland America’s Koningsdam for a week. I flew Toronto to Bridgetown Barbados and then sailed back to Lauderdale. The ...

Princess Cruises.

Once again I’ve been absent for some time. I’ve been on tour.  The agency that books my work, Artists West Entertainmet, does a fine job of keeping my calendar full. Sadly the means I’m not always connected to the internet enough to post my blog.  Lucky no one reads it, so there’s that.

Afraid of the New

Another late post, but I just returned from AMAZING shows on Holland America’s Neiuw Amsterdam in Central America on its way to the Panama Canal.  I honestly think that being a comedy magician, someone who can truly blend being a comedian and doing skilled magic is the way to really grab the crowd. Its interactive and still funny.  People feel they’r...
