“Someday, Gary Goodman may slip an elephant through the eye of a needle.”
— The Palm Beach Post
When Gary Goodman was 12, he invited 20 friends into his garage, charged ten cents a head, and locked the door. He then spent the next hour performing magic tricks he’d learned from library books!
Although Gary comes from a show business family, it was the famed escape artist, Harry Houdini, who set him on the road to becoming a mentalist / magician entertainer. After seeing a Houdini movie, he was determined to become an illusionist. A magical stroke of good fortune provided the o ...

Gary was absolutely the highlight of our booth. There was over 100 vendors at this particular convention so this was going to be tough as every booth had something going on. We were looking for something fresh that would drive attention – Gary was it! We had an entire “Magic” theme going and of course, we needed the best magician. Gary drove attention with fast and clever magic acts bringing smiles to convention attendees making for a nice ice breaker and with the help of Gary – we won best interactive booth!!!! Thank you Gary, we couldn’t have done it without you. If you are looking for a great entertainer for any event – Gary is hands down the best. Thank you from all of us at Adobe and Connection for such an amazing experience. Can’t wait to work with you again!

Gary created such a magical evening for our team event. The virtual show was interactive, fun, and was a hit! Highly recommend. Will also add that Gary was incredibly professional, responsive, and easy to work with on short notice (5 days before our +40 person event).

Meet the Act

My family was in show business which led me to a career in the world of magic and mentalism.
I once had the honor of performing at the Tower of London for the queens guards. Also I have been the half-time entertainment for eight seasons for The Miami Heat and have been asked twice to perform for the legendary Friars Club in NYC.
I enjoy being with my wife and two children in my free time.
