I would recommend John Tudor without hesitation to any organization that asked. He was professional, accommodating and entertaining. John arrived early and stayed late; he worked well with the hotel staff, the casino staff and our emcee; he involved the crowd and his show was appropriate for the time of day and the professional crowd attending.
"The audience gasped with delight at Tudor's stylish magicianship." - THE STATE NEWS
John's heartwarming magic has been enjoyed across North America professionally since 1987. He appears in theaters and television, for Fortune 500 companies, and for conferences, and educational venues. His shows are a "magical journey", an energetic mix of imaginative stories and state-of-the-art magic. John's magic is born out of passion and theater; and by pulling rabbits out of hats, he seeks to bring out the magic in everyone. His magic secret is his way with the audience. Everyone becomes part of a performance that "not just entertains, but leaves the audience with opened minds." - (Orangeburg Times)
"I would recommend John Tudor without hesitation to any organization that asked. He was very professional, very accommodating, and very entertaining. John arrived early and stayed late; he worked well with the hotel staff, the casino staff and our emcee; he involved the crowd and his show was appropriate for the time of day and the professional crowd attending."
-Susan Longshore, Essex Homes
“John is a 'Class Act' and goes far beyond the usual magician's capabilities. Thanks for a tremendous performance and a professional approach.”
-Peter Burroughs, Coca Cola
"We have booked The Magic of John Tudor a dozen times over the past 5 years. We presented his full show in a 800 seat theatre with full lighting and sound and it was terrific. Especially great with kids. We also use him for festivals, donor receptions and fundraisers. He can work in virtually any setting, with any audience, is funny and his magic tricks are dazzling. Easy to work with, understands the business and will make your event memorable."
-Andrew Witt, Cultural Council of Richland and Lexington Counties
“Fantastic! You're just Fantastic!”
-Millie Grimes, Belfair Oaks Plantation
STAGE SHOW - Here's an outline of the material I do the most often:
CARD MANIPULATIONS JT spins cards in the air, makes cards appear from nowhere, finds two selected cards in five seconds.
MONEY PRODUCTIONS JT makes silver dollars appear, from spectator brought onstage, and from members of the audience.
ONE CARD PETE JT sings blues and plays harmonica as he tells the tale of a gambler.
DRAWING DOWN THE MOON JT has two spectators onstage to tell mystic story, illustrated by linking metal rings.
CARD SWORD Three audience members select cards, JT takes haunted dueling sword, tosses cards into air and spears all three cards on sword.
PAPER BALLS/STARCLE JT lets audience see how a trick works, then “makes them a Star,” which becomes a prize for the helper.
BUTTERFLY BLIZZARD Colored strips of paper are given to the audience, placed in bowl of water. The paper is fanned into a blizzard of colored paper butterflies.
RABBIT ROUTINE JT pulls live rabbit from empty hat. Pick a card, and the rabbit finds it. Comedy finale: rabbit does sit up, which leads to standing ovation!
LEVITATION JT makes his dancer assistant seem to float in the air, with a touch of olde world romance.
