Artisanal Hand-Crafted Entertainment
"I grew up with the idea that it was the magician's job to deceive. And while some of us are content to do only that, I now believe the best magicians reveal the wonder that lies just beneath the surface of our everyday world."
With these words as his guide, master manipulator Curtis Kam creates deep astonishment for discriminating audiences all over the civilized world. Gone are the tired clichés, the tricky boxes, the animals in tiny cages. Instead, the audience enters a lost world of genuine wonder where ordinary objects do extraordinary things, complete strangers know what you're thinking, and sensible adults take on stupid tasks with impossible results.
The Wizard of Waikiki
Kam headlined “Magic in Paradise” at the Hale Koa Hotel for 13 years, performed tableside sleight-of-hand regularly at Dave and Buster’s, Tony Roma’s, TGI Fridays, and has entertained corporate and private audiences in Hawaii for over 40 years. He has designed illusions for “The Magic of Polynesia,” Honolulu marketing and media firms, trade shows, conventions, Ballet Hawaii, and Hawaii Opera Theater. Since 1989, he has performed as one-half of the mentalism and magic team Paranormal Guys with mythical radio personality Jon Kealoha. For even longer, he has created new magic and has lectured to magicians in Milan, Tokyo, Marseilles, Honolulu, California, Melbourne, Amsterdam, Washington, Las Vegas, Hollywood’s Magic Castle and London's Magic Circle.
The Smart Choice is a Smarter Entertainer
He owes his education to Yale University (B.S. In Biopsychology) The William S. Richardson School of Law (J.D.) and a sketchy group of grifters, jugglers, con men, comedians and magicians. In his spare time, he is a trial attorney, and has served as magical and legal consultant to the Hawaii Skeptics, advising scientists on the detection of fraud in the investigation of claims of the paranormal.
