Tom Burgoon- With an entrepreneurial career that spans over four decades, Tom Burgoon has wowed and impressed audiences coast to coast both on land and sea. His unique brand of comedy and magic has been showcased to a vast audience, with venues including everything from cruise lines to corporate clients such as 3M, Coca Cola and NASA. From comedy clubs and stage events in Las Vegas, Reno and L.A. to performing for President George W. Bush at the Inaugural Ball in Washington D.C., Tom has branded his unparalleled one-of-a-kind-show across our country, and he has become one of the most in demand performers today. 


The Great Kaplan- Illusion, music, juggling and deadpan comedy collide in this hilarious vaudevillesque spectacle.   

David Kaplan plays "the Great Kaplan", an earnest vaudeville performer, who while just trying to do a good show, inexplicably gets caught in the crosshairs of the universe. Murphy's Law according to Rube Goldberg.   

As his world seemingly crumbles, he manages to tame a rogue bowling ball, juggle furniture, perform feats of prestidigitation, and play melodies on concert balloon, turkey baster and his great grandfather’s ukulele, -- all to the delight of a charmed audience.  

Notable shows include a recent month long run at the Wintergarten Variete’ in Berlin and network television appearances on ABC TV’s “The View”, “The Statler Brothers Show” on TNN and “Le Plus Grand Cabaret du Monde” in Paris. David has headlined internationally and has shared stages with renowned performers including Steven Wright, Leon Redbone, David Spade, David Brenner, Harry Blackstone Jr., and the Smothers Brothers.  

Kaplan has won numerous awards including first place medals at the Canton Battle of Magicians and the Columbus Magi-fest, and the coveted “Peoples Choice” award at the 2006 International Brotherhood of Magicians. Most recently, he was awarded the 2010 Mandrake d’Or in Paris.  



Luis Carreon won the Harlan Tarbell Close-up Competition Award from the International Brotherhood of Magicians two years in a row. He also took home first place at the Chicago Magic Competition hosted by The Society of American Magicians.  

With his unique style of humor and wisdom, Luis regularly travels the country teaching other magicians about the art of magic. He is, also, the head demonstrator at Magic Inc., the oldest family-owned magic shop in the country. He has performed his show Bending Minds and Bending Dreams at theaters all around Chicago. Internationally, Luis has been featured on the Univision evening news showcasing his talents. He was honored to be a semi-finalist on Tengo Talento, the Spanish language equivalent of America's Got Talent. In addition, he is also a frequent performer at the famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, California.  

Luis can be seen performing regularly at The Chicago Magic Lounge where he is also one of the founding members.
