Exclusive! Sean Bogunia, November 25, 7 pm
First Time In the Chicago Area. Don't miss this one!
Sean's unique energetic style and his signature "Dancing Hank" routine has entertained audiences around the world! Sean has performed at hundreds of private and corporate shows and has also performed at many magic conventions such as Michigan Magic Day, Midwest Magic Jubilee, Abbott's Magic Get Together, and at the SAM (Society of American Magicians) Annual Convention. After winning several competitions, Sean found out that other magicians were interested in purchasing some of his effects and this began Sean's dual career as performer and inventor.
Because of Sean's creativity and innovations in magic, he has been asked to consult with many of today's top magic performers such as Cyril Takayama, David Blaine, Chris Angel, and David Copperfield. Recently, Sean has added "lecturer" to his resume and has begun sharing his knowledge with his fellow magicians. Sean's unconventional interactive lecture combines magic history, modern innovation and a few interesting stories about some of magic's leading magicians! Always looking towards the future of magic, Sean embraces Harry Houdini's statement: "My brain is the key that sets me free", and uses that to keep himself motivated and working towards the advancement of the magic arts.
