Watch The Magic Below
Carnegie’s shows are fun, exciting and filled with good clean entertainment. He has three different shows to offer: The Artist of Mystery Show, which is easy to customize for special events, The Astonify Show which is ideal for smaller events. Finally, The Steampunk Illusionist is a grand show of illusions for theaters and performing arts centers.
The Astonify Show is a theatrical recreation of a Victorian Parlor Magic performance combined with a full light Spirit Seance. The show is a blend of conjuring, thought reading, and ghostly mysteries. Great for team building activities and ideal for date nights.

MEET DEAN CARNEGIE
Dean Carnegie is a professional magical entertainer, author, and historian. His various interests in art, literature, and history all seem to find their way into his programs. As a professional magician, Dean travels all over the U.S. and abroad demonstrating and sharing his magic. He is the creator/producer of several different shows including Carnegie-Artist of Mystery, The Steampunk Illusionist, and The Astonify Show. He also develops custom presentations for corporate events and fortune 500 companies.
Dean is the author of two books on escapology for magicians and is finishing up his first children’s book. He has a book on the famous magician Harry Houdini in the works. Finally, he is the creator and writer for the very popular blog The Magic Detective which is all about the history of magic.
When not writing, painting or performing, Dean Carnegie is usually developing new material for his shows. Being an avid magic history fan, he constantly delves through 100+ year old books to find old world magic and then figures out how to make those old effects new again. In some cases, like with his Steampunk Illusionist Show, those old effects are presented just the way there were a century ago. Old mysteries for new audiences is a perfect combination.
