Rick Maue has been creating theatrical deception for more than four decades, and his specialty is getting inside the heads of his audience. His demonstrations range from controlling the decisions of others to reading their thoughts—but not really. After all, everything that Rick does is nothing more than theater, but sometimes he has a difficult time convincing everyone that sees him that he is simply creating illusions for the mind.
Until 1999, the magic world had never heard of Rick Maue because he was too busy performing in the real world. But then a strange routine called TERASABOS started to float through the underground, and people started talking. Soon after, TERASABOS “officially” appeared in The Book Of HauntedMagick, which was Rick’s first major release. Now, eight years later, HauntedMagick has sold in the thousands, and in over thirty-three different countries. But Rick didn’t stop there.
Since 2000, he has released a body of work that caught the attention of folks like Banachek, Bob Sheets, Simon Lovell, Craig Karges, Joshua Jay, Paul Gertner, Lance Daniels, Todd Robbins, Doc Eason, Docc Hilford, Jon Stetson, MAGIC Magazine, L&L Publishing, and many more…
Some of Rick’s other creations include, FATE, THE FINAL PICTURE, IMAGINE, MIXED EMOTIONS, THE JOURNEY, and THE BOOK OF SPIRITS SEANCE.
When he is able, Rick also lectures—and his tours have taken him from Arizona to New England, and from Florida to Seattle. He was the first lecturer to be brought back a second time at MINDvention, and now he has become a yearly contributor to the event—so he will be there again this November with more new material. Rick is also a featured performer at the 2008 LVMI scheduled for this June.
Rick spends most of his time at his home in Pittsburgh, with his wife Tammy and their daughter Jamie—where they run Deceptions Unlimited. He still tries to remain a bit of an enigma, but it gets harder with each passing year.
