To say that Bill Blagg has had a magical life would be no exaggeration. He received his first professional magic book from his great-grandfather, which eventually led to building magic props with his dad. These early beginnings paved the way for what is now known as The Magic of Bill Blagg.
Today, Bill is one of the nation’s top touring illusionists. His theatrical brand of magic thrills thousands of people every single year. Bill’s live performances leave people in complete disbelief as he creates the impossible in a way only he can do.
Bill prides himself in performing new, never-before-seen illusions such as the world’s only rideable hoverboard. He is also known for instantly teleporting across theaters, squishing his body from 6 feet to 6 inches tall, passing through the blades of an industrial fan, and much more!
Bill is constantly reinventing his performances with new magic & illusions to continue to thrill both new and repeat audiences. In addition to his full-scale show Bill also created an unbelievable educational experience The Science of Magic. Bill takes students on a rare behind-the-scenes journey to learn how magicians use science to create magic!
With an attitude aimed to please and a talent as large as they come, Bill’s future in magic is limitless as he continues to change reality one city at a time! He looks forward to sharing his blend of magic, personality and performance with you!

The Science of Magic is not directed at teaching the specific methods magicians use to fool their audiences. Rather it’s designed to excite, educate, intrigue and promote students to think “outside the box” and spawn their curiosity about how the Scientific Method can be used to create the impossible!

It was a presenters dream: a great show with a fantastic crowd, outstanding marketing materials, and an artist who was exceptional to work with from start to finish.
