We are very excited about Kevin James coming to lecture at our Ring Meeting on August 22, 2011 @ 7pm. We wanted to take this opportunity to invite the magic community to attend. The fee is only $10 for the lecture that will run about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. We need to get an idea of how many may be attending so we can let Kevin know ahead of time and make sure we have large enough facilities to hold the lecture. Currently it is scheduled to be at Stoner’s Funstore, 712 S. Harrison Street Fort Wayne, IN



Here’s some more information….



Kevin James Lecture

This is a collection of ideas from Kevin's show. There will be stage, parlour and close-up effects. Kevin would like to keep an open forum. He is willing to talk about anything. Some possible topics could be creativity, finding inspiration, how to be original, working internationally, promotion, what it was like to be on America's Got Talent or to perform at the White House. Just ask the question and he will discuss anything.



Kevin James - Bio

Kevin James became interested in the art of magic at a very early age. He remembers seeing his first magic performance and more importantly how it made him feel. He decided early on that performing magic for the world was going to be his life's calling.

His style of performance is anything but conventional. His unique comedy and magic has gained him a reputation as a world-class visual artist. His fresh approach has allowed him to headline in some of the world's top showrooms and theatres. He has performed on television in 68 countries. In the US he has performed on all the major television networks and many cable channels. Some of his past performances include starring at the Crazy Horse in Paris and a Royal Command Performance for the Prince of Monaco. In Las Vegas he has headlined in Splash at the Riviera, Caesar's Palace, Tropicana, Mirage and Bally's just to name a few. He has just completed a command performance for President Obama at the White House. Kevin is also one of the highest watched magician on youtube with millions of hits.

Kevin is also a very prolific magical inventor and consultant. Not only is his show original, he has created many things that have been performed in the shows of other famous magicians like Doug Henning, Mark Wilson and David Copperfield.

$10 is a small investment to help us continue to take our performances to a higher level. Please PM me if you need more information

Just rolled in from the Kevin James lecture. It was very good, he many of his inventions and his version of the cut and restored rope is better then any from the past. The highlight was to see his Floating Rose performed close-up by the master. He also performed his classic effects, coin in bottle and card in balloon.

He was very polished and very open to all the questions. It was a fun night with him and he also talked about his experience on American Got Talent.
