As America’s foremost authority on crooked gambling, Darwin further tipped the odds in favor of Obama/Biden.

Blending his expert technique with a fun dose of comedy and creativity, Mark is able to attain a level of true wonder in the brains of even the most analytical thinkers. He gave this campaign the continued magic that it needed to win this election.

NATAN LEFKOWITZ- Baltimore's up and coming sleight of hand star, Natan has quickly acquired a reputation for his wizardry with playing cards.

These nine magicians created the kind of evening that you would have if you flew to L.A. and finagled an invitation to the famed Magic Castle.
