Virtual Magic Shows

Magician Jeff Evans brings his blend of clean comedy and amazing magic direct to you and your guests – virtually – anywhere you have access to the internet

Jeff Evans first performed a virtual magic show in 2012. At the time he wrote, “Just finished one of the most unusual shows ever:  the front row of my audience was 850 miles away.I was at Polycom‘s high tech Bellevue RealPresence Experience (RPX) studio and my audience was at Polycom’s San Jose RPX.” You can read the full article about his virtual magic show here. The performance took place at two, identical high-tech immersive video boardrooms in different parts of the country.

The coronavirus pandemic literally forced everyone to quickly adapt to virtual meetings. Jeff’s first Zoom magic shows were in mid-March 2020, and he soon transformed a room in his home into a “Zoom Room” streaming video studio.

“At first I was skeptical about doing virtual shows. I don’t like just performing for a video camera; it’s kind of boring. But as I began adapting my show to work online and performing it and fine-tuning it, I discovered that some magic actually works better virtually than in real life.”

Everyone has a front-row seat at Jeff’s virtual magic show

Huh?!? Yes, there actually are some advantages of virtual shows. First, everyone can see and hear perfectly. Everyone has the “best seat in the house.” Acoustics are always good. Because large props can be used, and setup time and space aren’t an issue like they can be in a live performance venue, Jeff can do creative and custom routines that aren’t always practical to set up quickly or take “on the road.”

Viewers follow along with Jeff Evans and experience magic right in their own hands!

Jeff has had good results and recommends the Zoom meeting format: viewers can see and hear him, and Jeff can see and hear attendees (if they have their microphone and camera active). Jeff will ask viewers to grab items that they may have nearby in their home or office: coins, a book or magazine, pack of cards, piece of paper, etc.

Jeff performs for the Zonta Club of Olympia. Attendees all received a “Goody Bag” in advance that had a pack of cards. Imagine their reactions when they followed along at home and experienced magic in their own hands.

The City of Tumwater, Washington asked Jeff to create a custom video to celebrate the 4th of July
