Sean Phillips has been performing and studying the art of magic for nearly a decade. He began his career performing in seedy bars and night clubs around the Twin Cities, and has since worked his way up to performing for Fortune 500 companies, major colleges and universities, exclusive charity galas, and high-end private parties.

He has won awards for his close-up magic from the International Brotherhood of Magicians, and has worked as an illusion designer and consultant for theater companies and fellow performers.

Sean specializes in working with clients who want unique entertainment. Rather than relying on fake boxes and hidden mirrors, he prefers minimalist illusions based around sleight-of-hand, psychological techniques, and showmanship.

Using a few simple props, such as a deck of cards or a borrowed coin, Sean creates illusions more astonishing than what most magicians accomplish with a truck-load of apparatus. He is equally comfortable performing close-up magic for a small handful of people as he is presenting large stage shows for an audience of hundreds.

When he is not traveling, Sean can be found performing at corporate events, colleges, private parties, and theaters around the state. Widely considered to be one of the most talented magicians in the Twin Cities, find out for yourself why Sean's public and private appearances have become a must-see phenomenon.
