Long known as one of the most innovative magical performers in the world, Jeff McBride has become a favorite of corporate meeting planners and events production companies, not only for his spectacular skills, but for his ability and willingness to “shape shift” and bring his magic and mime skills to different kinds of characters in different settings. Besides bringing dynamic performing skills to the table, McBride brings his own vast experience and creativity, as well as his own team of illusion builders, special costumers, directors, designers, writers and more, as they may be needed to bring a particular vision to life.
Jeff has been creating shows for special events and venues since his early days headlining at the famed Mikado in Tokyo in the early 80’s, and has consulted on many theatrical as well as magic shows over the years, including the hitsJekyll & Hyde and Legs Diamond on Broadway. Known as the foremost teacher of magic in our time, Jeff can also teach executives to perform magic effects as part of a meeting or special event.
Whether used to open and close a general session, as a running character doing magic throughout a sales meeting, or performing a special magical awards show, McBride brings an “edge of the seat” excitement factor to any event.
Planners who really want to maximize their investment can hire McBride to do a performance one day, followed by a lecture or workshop the next. His insights are based on 35 years travelling the world and seeking out magical experiences of all kinds. Insights on team building, group facilitation, non-linear creative thinking and more are wrapped in a package that is entertaining, humorous and always inspiring.
