Jeff McBride -
The Mind of a Magician
When it's innovation you seek, you need to learn to think differently. For that, it's hard to do better than by turning to someone who wakes up thinking "what impossible thing can I create today?" Every day. That's the life of a magician, and when it comes to magicians, there's one who stands out for a career creating excitement and innovation.
Jeff McBride has been one of the world's most innovative and exciting magical performers for over 30 years. Bursting onto the international entertainment scene when still in his teens, he was opening act for such superstars as Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Tom Jones, The Smothers Brothers, George Carlin and others. Later he went on to build his own shows, winning awards and SRO audiences in New York, Las Vegas, Monte Carlo and around the world. He is founder of The McBride Magic & Mystery School, widely known as "the world's most prestigious school for magicians."
A dynamic and humorous speaker, Jeff has lectured on magic at The Smithsonian, for MacDonald's Corporate Headquarters and at the Creative Problem Solving Institute, among many others. Subjects include "Awaken the Magician Within," in which audiences learn a bit about how magicians think, and even a few tricks; "Magic & Creativity" in which Jeff reveals some of the techniques he uses to remain amongst the most innovative magical performance artists of our time...and many others. Here is a short sample of his work as a speaker (above), as well as video introducing his work as a performer (below).
