Professional magician and Ballard resident Tony Comito performs with colleagues Rick Anderson and Louie Foxx Feb. 2 at Egan's Ballard Jam House.
Magical night to come at Egan's
Egan's Ballard Jam House, known for its jazz performances, will do a bit of hocus-pocus Feb. 2, as it offers "That's Impossible!" a magic/comedy show.
Rick Anderson and Louie Foxx join Ballard performer Tony Comito for an evening of close-up magic with audience participation.
"Louie Foxx does a trick whip-cracking act which is probably something you would not see on stage in Omaha," said Comito. "You can't go wrong with whip-cracking."
Foxx also does unusual hand shadows.
"Things you’ve never seen before, not a crocodile or rabbit, but quite phenomenal things," said Comito. "That’s true of everything you're going to see."
Anderson will involve the audience with his close-up, slight-of-hand.
"This is a great venue for performing magic," said Comito. "With seating for 45, the magicians have the attention of the audience. Often we perform at parties, walking around and performing to small groups of guests that can become easily distracted."
Reservations are encouraged. There is a $10 cover. Egan's, located at 1707 N.W. Market St., will be open for dinner and they offer a full bar.
