Blake has performed his unique brand of magic all over the world for crowds ranging from 20 people to 2,000 people. His style of magic is fun and goofy and he always tries to make you smile whether its with a funny "trick" or a friggin' miracle. Blake currently resides in Los Angeles, CA and is staying busy creatively consulting for live theatre, musicians, television, and movies. He is also regularly performing his brand of off the wall magic for private events and functions all over the world. The only thing you will never see Blake do is pull a rabbit out of a hat... because sadly... he is very allergic to those adorable creatures. FREE ADMISSION.
