JEFF MCBRIDE'S NEW LECTURE 2020
Since his first tour of Japan at the age of 16, Jeff McBride has been widely known as a foremost innovator delivering the most riveting performances in the world of magic. His unique combination of masks, mime, mythic story and world-class sleight of hand earned him wide recognition as one of the most exciting creators and performers in the world of contemporary conjuring.
Early recognition came in the form in invitations to perform with leading concert superstars like Diana Ross, Tom Jones and Cheap Trick. This led to his becoming one of the youngest headliners ever in Las Vegas, in the Bal du Moulin Rouge at The Las Vegas Hilton. He has returned to top Vegas casinos many times over the years, most recently headlining at Caesars and Palace Station Casino.
McBride is a three-time award winner at the International Grand Prix of Magic in Monte Carlo and was named Magician of the Year by The Academy of Magical Arts (The Magic Castle). Crowning him "Vegas' Best" Magician several years ago, the Las Vegas Review Journal wrote: "Light years ahead of the pack... McBride is easily the most exciting and mesmerizing magician I've seen in years." For several years, McBride headlined at Caesars Magical Empire in Las Vegas and recently toured South America with the world’s largest magic show, The Illusionists, and China with Las Vegas Magic Stars, a grand illusion spectacular he created with illusionist Greg Gleason. His McBride’s Wonderground magic nightclub has just completed its ninth year of performances in Las Vegas.
Besides his work as a performer, Jeff McBride is well-known for his founding of the McBride Magic & Mystery School, the world’s most renowned academy for the training of magical performers. Top artists and beginners alike make the pilgrimage to Las Vegas to study at his House of Mystery.
