He offers both roaming 'mingle' entertainment as well as stage shows and larger presentations. All of his shows are interactive and can be customized to fit any type of event, large or small.
Established in 2002.
Hart's interest in magic started at the age of 15 after his high school Spanish teacher showed him a card trick. It was at that moment that he knew what he wanted to do with his life. He had been bitten by the 'magic bug'...
He continued to perform as much as he could through college, mostly at social functions and the occasional paid booking. When he was 21 he landed his first regular, weekly paid gig at a restaurant in Albany, OR. It was there that he was able to hone his skills and develop the interactive style you see today. This and the other restaurants he picked up paved the way to more and more outside work. Now, almost 12 years later, Hart performs over 250 shows per year all over the Northwest for corporate, college, fairs, and private functions.
In 2010 Hart appeared on the hit show, NBC's "America's Got Talent!". He received a "yes" from Judge Howie Mandel but a "no" from Judges Sharon Osborne and Piers Morgan. "It was a great experience!", says Hart.
