  3. David Williamson in: Ridiculous


David Williamson is generally regarded by magicians as one of the top performers in the world today. Known for his tours in “Circus 1903” and “The Illusionists”, David is creating a brand new solo full length magic production exclusive to the Rhapsody Theater. The subject of this show is an exploration of the word Ridiculous.

 

"Step into a world where comedy and magic collide, as the inimitable David Williamson takes center stage in his latest spectacle, 'Ridiculous.' Known for his uproarious antics and jaw-dropping illusions, Williamson has been hailed as a clown, magician, and even an anarchist. But this time, he's embracing the chaos with a show that encapsulates the whirlwind of hilarity and wonder that is his very existence. Prepare for an evening of relentless laughter, mind-bending tricks, and a dash of anarchy. ''Ridiculous' transcends the boundaries of a mere theatrical performance; it serves as a one-man rebellion against the monotony of a life too often bogged down by seriousness. This show is not just an escape, but a full-on revolt against the mundane, offering a sanctuary of laughter, wonder, and awe. Don't miss the chance to be part of this unforgettable experience!"

 

A born showman and accomplished sleight-of-hand artist, David Williamson dazzles audiences with a blend of heart-stopping magic and sidesplitting hilarity. He has been featured on ABC’s “Champions of Magic,” where he appeared with Princess Stephanie as he performed his miracles at various locations in and around Monaco. Williamson has also co-starred in several top-rated prime-time network specials, including CBS’ “Magicians’ Favorite Magicians,” NBC’s “Houdini: Unlocking His Mysteries” and NBC’s “World’s Greatest Magic III.” He was seen recently on The CW’s “Masters of Illusion” TV series as well as “America’s Got Talent.”

Williamson has developed TV shows for Walt Disney Productions and ABC, as well as consulting on TV specials for illusionists David Copperfield and David Blaine. His bestselling magic book, “Williamson’s Wonders,” has been translated into three languages.

 

Williamson is also featured as the Ringmaster in the exciting show “Circus 1903” currently touring the world and returning to the UK for a holiday tour. He is also a frequent favorite Guest Entertainer on Disney Cruise Lines.

Recently, Williamson was honored with the Performance Fellowship by the Academy of Magical Arts and Sciences at the Magic Castle in Hollywood. In 2017, Williamson was named The Magic Castle’s Magician of the Year. He was also recently awarded Honorary Lifetime Membership by the UK’s Magic Circle, the world’s premier magical society.

 

Run time is approximately 90 minutes with one intermission.
