The video below was for the old Astonify Show! New Video Coming…
The original Astonify Show was a theatrical recreation of a Victorian Parlor Magic performance combined with a full light Spirit Seance. Both, Parlor Magic and Seances were popular in the 19th Century. This combination is rarely seen since.
However, the newest version of the show alters things drastically. It is no longer strictly a ‘period’ performance. However, you’ll still experience stage magic, sleight of hand magic, mental mysteries, even Grand Illusion. And as an audience member, you will be ‘part of the show’. Not everyone wants to be an active member, we understand this, so there are routines we will do as a group, and things that will require a more hands-on approach from members of the audience. You’ll enjoy a very unique and pleasant evening of entertainment….with a slightly spooky edge. (YES, the theatrical seance is still part of the show)
NOT A Show For Kids
The Astonify Show is designed for ages 16 years and older. This is a sophisticated evening of marvels and mysteries for adult minded people.
Dates very limited. Contact us for more information.
Who Is Dean Carnegie
You might think of Carnegie as a genuine traveler through time. Born in the 20th Century, he spends most of his time in the 19th Century, but in order to bring the Astonify Show to you, he must journey to the 21st Century!
Carnegie is a full time illusionist and creator of theatrical mysteries. He has had the privilege of performing at the White House on four different occasions. He has performed at the famous National Theatre in Washington D.C. This is the same theatre that saw the debut performance of John Wilkes Booth, and hosted Barnum’s Jenny Lind Tour in 1850. Carnegie continues to travel the country and beyond sharing his fantastic brand of magic.
Along with his performing abilities he enjoys the history of magic and show business. Carnegie often presents lectures on conjurers of the past, or in other words, his friends. When not performing, he can be found hosting the popular magic history podcast, The Magic Detective Podcast. Finally, Dean is also an artist and enjoys painting. His usual subject matter, painting magicians of the past. His artwork can be seen at Artist of Mystery.com
