Brad’s Halloween Magic Trick

I have always loved magic. In fact, my first ever paying gig was as a 15-year old magician. As a motivational speaker, I often (though not always) work a bit of magic into my performances every so often. And if I am really lucky, a client will hire me specifically to do a magic routine.

Never Follow A Beef Dinner

My goal is always to create an experience that is meaningful for all. It’s not all content.

They want to be engaged…but they don’t need a comedian.

In that room.  At the convention.  At the hotel.  And happily for me, this is something I’m both very good at…and I love to do.
