On Saturday, December 15th at 6:00 pm, Midwest Magic Midwest Magic, 9706 Franklin Ave., Franklin Park, Illinois is proud to present:
The Los Angeles Daily News called him "a master showman."
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch dubbed him "a master of repartee."
Television's Entertainment Tonight summed it up: "He's the master mindreader."
He's performed in over two-dozen countries, appeared on hundreds of television and radio programs, top talk shows and variety specials, as well as acted on comedy and dramatic shows including Count DeClues' Mystery Castle, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and General Hospital.
Recently, Magic Magazine, the leading intraprofessional conjuring journal, published a list of the 100 most influential people in the field of theatrical magic during the 20th century. Included on the list is Max Maven, cited for "entertaining and astonishing audiences with his bizarre brand of mental magic.... [M]ost of Maven's mind-boggling feats are accomplished through psychological subterfuge that he himself has cunningly created... If mystery does indeed give magic its meaning, then the enigmatic persona of Max Maven makes us ever mindful of the art that is hidden in the mystery of magic."
Using an advanced (and highly unorthodox) set of psychological principles and techniques, Max is able to discern the thoughts of total strangers. Subliminal persuasion and the power of suggestion are pushed to the limit. People magazine hailed his work as "a new form of participatory theater." This is weird stuff--and audiences love it. Max Maven's mysteries transcend linguistic and cultural boundaries.
Max's lecture will include new material--never before seen in Chicago, and will be entirely different from the material he presents for Magic, Inc. the following afternoon. Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door. As always, seating is in order of reservation, so call today! 847-455-4288
