Illusion Production Show - Over the course of Krendl’s Career he has built a magical empire of illusions, props, and rigging making him one of the largest magic production companies in the country. Krendl offers 2 entirely different 90-minute Illusion Production shows. These shows are produced with a minimum of 3 people and expand from there.
Stand-up Comedy Magic Show - Let’s face it...sometimes you just want a show for your group that is just plain fun and memorable. Krendl’s Stand-up Comedy magic show does just that. Fast-paced, interactive, fun, and magical. I ... n addition, this show is designed as a 'fly' show. Krendl is able to provide a 60-minute show that all fits inside of 2 checked bags to fly anywhere in the world with. Making this one of the most flexible shows that packs small and plays big.
Strolling magic - used for interactive entertainment that can mix and mingle with crowds. Creating bursts of applauding, laughing, and conversation starters among groups of 2-8 people at a time. Krendl roams around from group to group sparking engagement and memorable feats of magic along with great photo opportunities all along the way. Performing card magic effects, mentalism, telekinesis, and other sleight-of-hand effects.
Close-up performance - The magic for this is similar to the style of strolling magic but is designed to take place at a table or similar type environment where guests gather around for a close-up show ranging from 15 minutes in length to 60 minutes based on the needs of the event.
Spook Show - This is a specially designed show meant for audiences 16 years and older. Topics of death, spirits, and more will be explored in this physiological thriller. It’s a mix of storytelling, special effects, and magic...the hard part is telling yourself it isn’t real! This show is designed for an intimate audience ranging in size from 6-8 people to 60-70 people at a time.
Virtual Show - Magic is without one of the most powerful forms of entertainment and engagement on a virtual platform! Krendl has developed strategies to read people’s minds through the screen, control playing cards in their hands, and even using their fingers on their screen to create magic moments. Krendl offers both pre-recorded and live virtual shows all of which are customizable using the event themes, logos, and more in them.
Master of Ceremonies - Looking for an MC that is able to strengthen themes, energize audiences, and be entertaining all at the same time?! Krendl enjoys these types of requests as it allows him to support an event and make others shine...the best form of magic anyone can provide :-)
Speaking Engagements - Main topics that Krendl has been brought in to speak on. ‘Magic Moments’ this topic is about the power of looking at customer/client interactions and how to maximize them through connecting through these mental photographic memories we create with them. ‘The Master of 3 Minutes and the Power of Being Present’ is a speech Krendl draws upon his career as one of the only people in the world who have been able to be locked into Houdini’s Water Torture Cell upside down and have to pick handcuffs and padlocks while underwater at 3 minutes at a time. There are many powerful lessons in this talk ranging from gratitude, letting go, being present, pushing through challenges, power of breath, and more.
Entertainment Producer - With the experience of performing for thousands of events and producing stand-alone events on his own, Krendl has developed a strong understanding of what makes events successful and how to balance the client's vision while at the same bringing together the right artists that will work best for the environment and budget that is given. In addition with now over 3 locations of warehouses located in CA, OH, and VA Krendl is able to provide a lot of in-house resources to create a package that can take care of your video needs, special effects, lighting, sound, and so much more.
Illusionist - Creator - Inspirationalist
Krendl’s enchanted life into the entertainment industry started very humbly at the age of 10 and by age 12 acquired his first regular working gig performing birthday party shows at a local Mcdonald's in a small town of Delphos, OH. Since childhood Krendl has always had a passion for the art of magic and the connection that entertainment can provide to others. Krendl’s drive and passion drove him to the top of his field winning awards, breaking records, and creating new opportunities wherever possible. He has become 1 of only 2 people in t ... he entire world that is able to perform Houdini’s Water Torture Cell in the open, in full view (holding his breath upside down for over 3 minutes at a time). But trying to define Krendl by one impressive feat is like trying to say Disney created an animated mouse named Mickey...there is so much more!
Through childhood, Krendl grew into the art of magic until the age of 19 when he was awarded his first major contract on a cruise ship which led him into a series of additional opportunities from there. In 2000 Krendl setup his magic company as a full-time performer in Virginia Beach, VA. Working closely with the city he was able to acquire numerous awards and performance records. Krendl won the ‘Attraction of the Year Award’, won best in show for 5 years in a row, has become the longest-running headliner in the history of Virginia Beach (17 years and still counting), was the first and only entertainer to win Top 40 under 40 in Hampton Roads, and the list goes on. During this time Krendl’s passion and drive turned into producing entertainment along with creating new shows and content with his magic. He founded Magical Solutions Inc. which became the first agency of its kind, in the region, specializing in novelty and specialty acts, which grew into a lighting design company, which grew into an entertainment staffing company, which grew into being a guest speaker for events, which grew into over 5 years of touring with the largest most successful magic company in the world, The Illusionist Live from Broadway, appearing in over 15 countries around the world.
From performing $5 birthday parties at McDonald's at the age of 12 to creating a magical production company that grossed $1 million per year to performing on some of the most prestigious stages in the world (The Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., Sydney Opera House in Australia, The Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam, and Crocus City Hall in Moscow to name a few), Krendl continues to grow with his passions.
Krendl attributes his success to having a strong foundation into his core beliefs of creating meaning with events and performances, focusing on transforming people’s emotions, and never losing the passion of connecting with people. All of Krendl’s programs and projects have kept this philosophy alive. From empowering children by teaching them magic with meaning, raising over $500,000 for schools and non-profits through his fundraising shows; to working on corporate platforms offering inspiration and ideas for looking at life differently to be happier and overall more successful.
Whether it's magic performances, speaking engagements, or producing entertainment. The KrendlMagic brand is always about creating, transforming, and connecting.
