THE MANIAC OF MAGIC IS COMING TO JANESVILLE, WISCONSIN
Janesville – Part magician, part comedian, and totally dysfunctional, Nathan Allen will be bringing his highly-caffeinated blend of magic and comedy to Janesville! Allen (dubbed “The Maniac of Magic” by his peers) will be making a stop at The Crosby Place on Friday, February 15th, as part of “The Comedy and Magic Valentine Dinner Show” hosted by The Crosby Place. Doors will open at 6:00pm for social hour, dinner will be served at 7:00pm, and the adult-only show will start at 8:00pm.
Part magician, part comedian, and totally dysfunctional, Nathan Allen performs a highly-caffeinated blend of magic and comedy!
Yes, Nathan Allen is a magician, but don’t be fooled – you will see NO tuxedo and NO sparkly boxes in this show. Instead, Nathan combines his twisted sense of humor, sleight-of-hand magic skills, and hilarious audience participation into one of the very few magic shows on the face of the planet that is both geared for adults AND funny.
The best trick up Nathan’s sleeve is his ability to connect with a crowd, and it’s a trick he can pull off whether he is at a corporate event or a biker bar. With a knack for being a bit naughty and tons of fun, without being offensive, Nathan’s personality-driven performances have been described as “Edgy, funny comedy and magic at its best” (Naturally Funny Entertainment; Chicago, IL), “Funny, fast-moving, unique, and very entertaining!” (Vetesnik Power Sports; Richland Center, WI), and “Action packed, funny, and unpredictable!” (Iowa Emergency Management Association; Des Moines, IA).
The International Brotherhood of Magicians recently presented Nathan with the Iowa Magic Award, based on his technical skills and entertainment value. He is the only magician ever featured in “The Grassroots Comedy Tour” and “The Dirty Jokes & Magic Tricks Show”. His entertainment services won him a full-ride business scholarship to attend college. Of the dozens of magicians in Iowa, Nathan was the only one selected to perform onstage at Iowa Governor Culver‘s Inaugural Gala. He has appeared on international television on TV3, broadcast from the United Kingdom, and has been seen here in the USA on NBC, ABC, and PBS television news programs. And yet, in a typical example of his priorities, he insists that he is most proud of being elected Class Clown.
More than just something out of thin air, Nathan’s slow-but-steady rise in the entertainment industry is the result of a 15-year, love-hate obsession with his work. He started learning magic when he was only 8 years old and did his first paid performance when he was just 12. Now, at the age of 28, Nathan has a long list of performances under his belt, for companies including 3M, Alliant Energy, Charter Communications, Honda, RadioShack, Swiss Valley Farms, and Wal-Mart, to name just a few.
Nathan is based out of Des Moines, Iowa. He drinks way too much coffee, and in his spare time, he enjoys arguing with the television… when it’s turned off.
The show will feature an opening act – the sick & twisted comedy of Harville, a crowd favorite across the Midwest.

I’ll be at The Depot in Cuba City, WI (kinda between Platteville WI and Dubuque IA), along with my deeply-disturbed (and very funny) comedian friend Harville.
Come on out for an evening of card tricks and dick jokes.
It’ll be fun.

Seeking Adult Drunk Clown for 30th Birthday party
Date: 2008-08-26, 3:22PM CDT
We need an Adult Drunk Clown who is good at getting drunk and stupid. No need to do any clown tricks, just hang out and drink a shit load. We will be hopping around to different bars and want a clown to tag a long and drink heavely. He doesn’t even need to socialize with anyone, just drink.
the birthday is on Friday, Sept. 5th in Bucktown. Oh, did I mention that the clown needs to get shitfaced. Don’t worry, we will purchase all the drinks.
…this is exactly how I feel.

One of the most common questions I get is, “Where do you perform?”
My typical answer is, “Ummm…”

- Awards Nights
- Banquet Events
- Beer Gardens
- Christmas Parties
- Class Reunions
- Club Events
- Coffee Shops
- Colleges and Universities
- Comedy Clubs
- Comedy Nights
- Company Parties
- Corporate Events

Yeah. That would be fun… for me.
Oh, and if you think that this was just some pointless post to help out with search engine rankings… You’re absolutely right.
