About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Dennis Christie M.D. "Master Deceptionist" amazes both young and old with his jaw-dropping entertainment up close and on stage as he blurs the lines of reality. He wins over scores of people with his fun-loving, laid back, and approachable personality. His mentalism skills, illusions, and close-up magic leave people mind-blown! He has mystified companies such as Great Wolf Lodge, Jones Lang LaSalle, Pandora, The Chicago Bears, multiple Fortune 500 Companies including Baxter, Abbvie, CDW, and many more. Dennis was the In-house Magician at Key Lime Cove Indoor Waterpark Resort in Gurnee for over 5 years. He has had the privilege of performing at the Historic Civic Opera Building in Chicago, the Historic Woodstock Opera House, skyscrapers, Raised! an Urban Rooftop Bar, Senior Centers, numerous Church functions, and even at charity events like: Cancer Relay for Life & Autism Speaks. He has also performed for WRLR Radio and been a Featured Guest Speaker on their radio show. Don't just hire any magician, hire a true professional. Someone who will go the extra mile to make sure your event will be remembered for years to come! Dennis is not your typical amateur magician, as he has been pursuing magic as a full-time profession for over a decade. All of his material is tasteful and although he does get many laughs, it is never at anyone else's expense. Dennis often says "I am not interested in people being impressed by my abilities, my primary goal is to leave them with the sense of child-like awe and wonder that we often lose as we become adults. That's the gift of Magic! Illusions are what I do, Magic is what you feel" He specializes in close-up magic and mentalism, but is also skilled in many other styles such as stage, coin, rope, and impromptu magic (magic using everyday objects like toothpicks, straws, rubber bands, etc.). Dennis' illusions are visually engaging and are sure to put smiles on your guests faces. He regularly incorporates audience participation as they help to make the magic come to life in their own hands. No one will leave the show without having a great time and everyone will be talking about the show for years . It's not uncommon for us to bump into people years later, who are excited to show us that they are still carrying a signed playing card that he used to perform an illusion with. These memories last a lifetime! His fun-loving, laid back personality and vast skill-set allows him the ability to customize his performance to cater to any type of gathering, including but not limited to, birthday parties, corporate events, weddings, trade shows, city-wide festivals, ticketed stage shows, charity fundraisers, ministry outreaches and any of your special occasions. There are 2 different formats that we find work the best for parties and larger events alike; 1) A traditional stage show, requiring a room big enough for all of your guests to sit or stand while viewing a performance that can span from fifteen minutes to two hours depending on your needs. Mixing magic with mentalism, your guests will be left astonished as his shows are highly interactive and engaging and often will include 10-20 volunteers. 2) A casual approach where Dennis will stroll around your event mingling with guests and performing mini-shows for individuals and small groups. Dennis will carry on him everything he needs so he will not take up any more space than your average guest. His presence does not interrupt the flow of the event, yet works as a great ice breaker while guests arrive and provides entertainment throughout the event. 3) OPTIONAL: To make your event even more memorable, we can provide personalized playing cards that will list any information that you would like (company logo, child's name/age, pictures, bridal info, product info, etc) Dennis can be an accent to your event or the main attraction...the choice is yours! Any of the options work well as a package or separately. In many cases people prefer a combination of all of the above. Dennis is also fully insured. Check out our videos and pictures and see why Dennis Christie M.D. is the right choice for your next event! If you haven't caught his act at the Woodstock Opera House where he performs his two hour stage show, you can go see him perform his parlor(close-up) show on the 1st Saturday of every month at Stage Left Cafe (connected to the Woodstock Opera House). Please reach out to us so that we can custom build the perfect show for your event! We are looking forward to serving your entertainment needs.

Community EventReviewed on August 28, 2023From Chicago, IL

I hired Dennis Christie for my Agency's annual Block Party, and he did a WONDERFUL job entertaining the young & the not so young. He was engaging, friendly & respectful. We are in a 95% Hispanic neighborhood, and Dennis found a way to draw the neighbors in. I would highly recommend him.
