Guest Lecture Night

Putting The “Show” Back In “Magic Show’

Greg Whalen

In his presentation for Ring 41 on Sept. 22nd entitled “Putting the SHOW in Magic Show”, Greg Whalen, a full-time professional entertainer for over 30 years, delivers a fun and unique lecture

with no pricey gimmicks to buy and no finger-fracturing sleights to learn! Greg’s entertaining lecture is not primarily focused on learning tricks, although several fun audience-tested routines using items such as silks, money, sharpies and newspapers will be performed and taught. The focus is on learning how to write completely original patter and super-charge your stage presence no matter what kind of magic you perform! Whether you are a hobbyist or a long-time pro, the information in this highly enjoyable lecture will help you add polish, originality and theatricality to your performances!

Born in Brooklyn, Greg Whalen earned a BA in Theatre in his home state of New York, and an MFA in Acting from the University of Illinois.  For the past 32 years, Greg has made his living as a Chicago-based full-time professional entertainer, performing as a stand-up comic, actor and magician.  He has performed for hundreds of corporate clients and his voice-acting can be heard on the Disney Channel, History Channel, VeggieTales, TV commercials, video games and audiobooks.  Mr. Whalen was also featured in the Emmy Award nominated PBS film The Artsiders.
