LIVE Magic Shows

Carnegie is BACK with LIVE in person Magic shows. These are fun, interactive and filled with good clean entertainment.   We still offer virtual shows for those clients that would prefer them. But the best way to see magic is LIVE!


Carnegie’s COUNTRY MAGIC SHOW is back in the line-up. A fun blend of stage magic and illusions themed around the world of country music! This can be a short opening act, or a full blown show. It’s great fun for any age!


The Astonify Show is a Victorian style  Parlor Magic performance combined with theatrical Spirit Seance.

The show is a blend of conjuring, thought reading, and ghostly mysteries. Great for team building activities and ideal for date nights. .

Talk Show Guest

Dean Carnegie is an ideal guest for talk shows on tv, internet, and radio. He can speak with authority on Houdini and magic history. And he can present mind boggling magic LIVE on the air with the show hosts or even with audiences listening from home! Dean specializes in interactive magic!

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, and the equally popular podcast, MagicDetectivePodcast.com 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.
