Nate Staniforth graphic

Nate is a magician, writer, traveler and host of the Discovery Channel’s international hit TV series Breaking Magic.  But don’t think of this as simply a magic show.  Nate abandons the ubiquitous style-without-substance bravado so often associated with magic and appeals instead to the imagination and intellect of his audience.  With his forthcoming book Here is Real Magic, Nate is your guide to finding more wonder in your life. 

“Just caught a Nate Staniforth show,” one reporter tweeted after an opening night, “and now I have no idea what to believe about anything anymore.”  No rabbits.  No top hats.  No smoke machines.  Nate’s show feels more like jumping out of an airplane than a night at a comedy club.  The journey is wild, visceral and immediate and, like all great art, encourages us to open our minds and hearts to see the world in new ways.
