“Something that can only be described as ‘refreshingly different,’ the live-feed camera and interactive videos bring audiences up onstage and into the action, delivering a show that everyone can call their own.”

Funk has designed a show that truly encourages audience members to discover “wonder”, while laughing, smiling, gasping with amazement and experiencing a “child-like sense of awe,” all along the way, the release continued. Presenting a violin concerto and a guitar loop recorded live onstage has put this show into a league of its own.

Funk has received rave reviews when he has performed his incredible comedy magic thousands of times across the country, the information continued.

“Chris engages the audience with his quick wit, dry humour and amazing talent. Comments like: ‘How did he do that?’ tells it all. He truly is the master of magic," ​said Bayer Crop Science of Funk’s performance.

"Chris is amazing. His show is so entertaining and left us all baffled. Plus he is funny.  He has a rare gift and is highly entertaining top quality like Vegas and TV," raved another fan by the name of Glenn, and an audience member from a performance for Great-West life said: "My wife hasn’t seen me laugh like that in years!"

Funk has even appeared on America’s Got Talent, and Simon Cowell has been quoted as saying: “Best magician we’ve had on the show so far. I’ve never seen anything like that!”

Funk has spent the last 15 years traveling the world, performing for theatres, cruise ships and TV. His unique approach to magic has garnered him performances at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood, Hollywood’s World-Famous Magic Castle as well as on Disney Cruise Lines, and his show has garnered standing ovations and a reputation for excellence, the information concluded.

Tickets will be available at the door, and advance season passes are now on sale at Pheobe’s Beauty Parlor.
