Shawn Eric has been practicing and performing his magic entertainment for over 40 years!

Originally from Ohio, Shawn began honing his skills at restaurants and parties. He traveled and worked in New York City, Boston, New Orleans, and Boulder, Colorado, where he studied with master magicians Slydini, Derek Dingle, Cellini, Johnny Fox, and others to learn the fine art of magic and performing.


Shawn moved west to Arizona to start a new career phase, taking his magic into the corporate and hospitality markets.

He performed as a magic bartender at several locations, including James' Place, a magic-themed restaurant in Scottsdale; The Treehouse, an iconic restaurant in Cave Creek; the historic Carefree Inn; and The Boulders' Resort.

Then the Food and Beverage Manager for the Boulders, and present owner of Tarbell's Restaurant, Mark Tarbell, commented…

“We’ve had wonderful guest response! Shawn’s fun presentations and casual style make him a special addition to any function. I highly recommend Shawn!”


In the late 1980s, Shawn Eric continued his magical studies at the Magic Castle and Academy of Magical Arts in Hollywood, California.

Shawn Eric performed for master magicians Dai Vernon aka The Professor, Charlie Miller, Larry Jennings, and a host of top magicians. After performances at the Magic Castle, Dai Vernon kindly inscribed these words about Shawn in one of his books…

“A fantastic performer whose coin work is remarkable.”

Currently, Shawn dreams of being a consummate professional magic entertainer. He is a magician member of the Academy of Magical Arts and a regular featured performer at the Magic Castle.

Shawn is also the house magician at Rustler's Rooste Restaurant at the Arizona Grand Resort in Phoenix.

With his enthusiastic charm and potent magic, Shawn's experience and versatility enable him to connect with and entertain audiences of all kinds. He is a dedicated professional who loves magic and loves his audiences! Shawn's mission is to entertain you and your guests with the best magic… Impossible!


"Thank you for bringing the Art of Magic!  You created such a fun experience for us all.  We will cherish these memories for years to come.  Thank you for your magical entertainment!" ~Nkechi O.  

Nkechi gave her husband a 60th Birthday Party he will never forget.  I worked with a fantastic team, including our planner Jeryse Kelly, DJ and emcee, Scott Faver, and photographer Alexxis Great who captured these reactions.  The guests were expressive, beautiful, and fun.  It was a fantastic party!  


Take me out to the ballgame!

This was a fun project that developed over a couple of years. Although I've been performing the effect for many years, I added a baseball theme story presentation and had the idea of doing it on an infield design. Then I read Dick Steiner's book, Trifecta, where he describes using baseball, football, and golf-designed table tops for his effects. I wanted the design to be on a dinner napkin so I could use it more versatilely. So I found the material with a green field-like color and visited my tailor, Maya Diaz, to cut and sew the napkins. Then it was off to Rick & Alison Ivansek at AG Werks to design and print the infield design.  These came out very nice. My friends Anne Philips let me wear the Diamondback's World Series Championship shirt and hat, which was very cool, and Frank Frounfelker did the camera work, which looks great. I'm grateful to all these team players for their help in producing this video!

Finally, I'd like to dedicate this to the cherished memory of Daryl, a dear friend and one of the greatest magicians I've ever known, who taught me the effect almost 40 years ago. 

PS. This effect has an additional ending that must be seen live to be appreciated. As an attraction, I imagine performing this in a private show for the Diamondback's team & organization and the suites' VIPs. If you know anyone who can arrange this, please let them know!  

Raving Fans!

"You are FANTASTIC; we will spread the word!!!" ~Steve W.  

"You were awesome last night.  They all talked about how much they loved the magic and your personality!  You made an unforgettable night!" ~Kristin F.

At the Troon Country Club

























"Thank you very much for making my birthday party a success!  You provided a fun, memorable evening that I will never forget!  Everyone thought you were fantastic!!!  Your professional skills as a magician are superior!  Your personality is delightful and engaging!  Your effort in personalizing your performance is much appreciated!

Thanks to you for your kindness in doing tricks for the staff as you waited outside the room.  They LOVED it!   You are welcome to use me as a reference for anyone who wants to hear from someone who has used you twice."

~Connie T. 

Here's an interview with Scott Faver, creator of the Event Ensemble, a network for event professionals.  He is a great DJ and overall entertainer.  Check out his website,  We had a great conversation about some of the effects I feature in my shows, the impossible gifts I present for birthdays, reunions, first dates, weddings, and anniversaries.  By the way, Scott and I have performed together at bar & Bhat mitzvahs, a dynamic duo of magic & music fun!  I highly recommend us!     

Recently I had the pleasure to perform at a celebrity golf tournament, the Chip Fore Charity event, for the Crain Family Foundation at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale.  We got a lot of great photos and some videos as well. Here's the best one starring Brandon Webb and friends as we worked some surprising magic together.  You won't be able to see the specific effect, but you will see what it looks like when I entertain at your event, i.e., my impact on groups of people. That's the real Magic Fun! 


Why are all these people smiling and laughing?  
Let's Take Photos of Your Guests Doing Magic!

Shawn Eric is a photo-taking, memory-making, gifting magic machine!

He's like a one-person, magical photo booth who mingles with your guests and presents his Photo Magic Card Trick as a gift of astonishment.

The guests gather as couples and in small groups.  They pick their favorite card, and after lots of comedy and shuffling the cards, they hold the fan of cards while Shawn Eric takes their photo and works his magic.  When they look at the picture on their phone/camera, they see the impossible!  They are amazed and have a memento souvenir that they can share with their friends and on social media (which further promotes your event hashtags). So, give your guests a highly interactive, fun, memorable, magical experience at your next event by inviting SE to work his Photo Magic Fun!
