eric bioAlready with over 2,500 national and international performances to date —— including appearances on NBC’s hit TV show “America’s Got Talent,” sold-out shows at The Tropicana and Caesars Hotel & Casino, headline acts in Times Square, Europe, Canada and the Caribbean —— Eric is considered, at the age of 24, the hottest rising star in the magic industry.

Known during his childhood as the “little entertainer,” Eric’s fascination with the art of magic began at five years old with a coin trick his father had brought home. Fast forward to age 10, when Eric received a standing-ovation for his magic act from a packed house onboard Royal Caribbean’s “The Explorer of the Seas” cruise ship. It was at that point that Eric realized magic wasn’t going to just be his hobby, but his life!

At age 12, The Extreme Magic Of Eric was born with Eric creating the name, the tone, the presentation and make-up of this award-winning show. Learning directly from David Copperfield, Criss Angel, and other masters of illusion in Las Vegas, Eric has continuously reshaped and modernized his performance to become a world-wide wonder receiving rave reviews wherever he goes. Combining an explosive mix of large cutting-edge illusions, mind-blowing daring escapes, outrageous stunts, customized lighting, and special effects, The Extreme Magic of Eric is truly a one-of-a-kind traveling illusion show … bringing a major theater-style quality to ANY event and venue!

lizzyShe will get cut in half in a way never seen before … disappear in a box with no way out … switch places with Eric in the blink of an eye … levitate 5 feet off the ground with no strings attached. And that’s just a small sampling of Lizzy’s spirited actions with The Extreme Magic of Eric.

Growing up with an interest in theater and dance, Lizzy met Eric at age 15 and has toured with the show ever since! Learning the art of magic from some of the most recognized magicians in Las Vegas, Lizzy has become a true star. Her youthful energy and charm engages the audience from the moment she steps out on stage until her final bow.

Lizzy’s goal has always been to change the stereotypical image of a magician’s assistant from someone who just rolls props on and off stage to someone who has a character of her own and forms a relationship with the audience. She works alongside Eric creating an undeniable chemistry that allows for illusions and a show like no other!

Note: If your event or venue does not allow for a female assistant, no problem. Eric is one of the only illusionists who has also created an all-male illusion show!
