A native of New Jersey, Kevin is a full time professional magician/Illusionist with over 25 years of performing experience! He became interested in magic at the young age of seven when he first saw a movie about his soon-to-be childhood idol, Harry Houdini. It was then that a relative exposed him to the world of sleight of hand, and soon afterwards he received his first toy magic set. The “magic bug” had bitten him for good. Kevin began practicing on the neighborhood kids and was soon asked to entertain at birthday parties.

Magic helped pay for his college education, and after graduating from Kean University with a BS degree in Computer Science, he continued to perform magic part-time at the local lounges and restaurants while at the same time perfecting his Close-Up Magic and Sleight-of-Hand skills. Since then, Kevin has won several awards in magic contests and has made numerous television appearances.

Rich Bloch

Oct 25, 2018 - Oct 27, 2018

In 1946, famed comics Bud Abbott and Lou Costello asked Billie Bloch, Rich’s mom, for permission to have her three-year-old son stay in Hollywood and begin a career in show business under their tutelage. Billie declined, whisking her son back to the safety of the east coast. But the hook was set. By age seven, Rich was hanging around stage doors and doing magic shows. At eight, he landed his first TV gig, as assistant to Dick DuBois, TV’s first Magic Clown, on the DuMont television network in New York City. And so it began.

Rich entertains audiences worldwide including at corporate events, on cruise lines, in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, and most recently, for the past two years at Washington, DC’s Woolly Mammoth Theatre presenting his original one-man show “Best Kept Secrets”. Rich is a two-time recipient of the coveted “Blackstone Award” from the International Platform Association, a six-time nominee for Stage Magician of the Year, and is a 2006 Fellowship recipient at Hollywood’s famed Magic Castle. Rich is also a magician’s magician. He has invented over 80 magic effects, many of which were sold through Rich’s magic manufacturing studio, “Collectors’ Workshop” where each effect was handmade by artisans on a farm in Middleburg, Virginia. Rich also holds a patent for a device he invented used by ice skaters with special needs. Very early in his magic career, Rich served as a scriptwriter and magic consultant to the legendary Orson Welles, who referred to Rich as “an Edison of Magic.” Rich has also served in various magic capacities to several theater companies including the Folger Shakespeare Theater in Washington, DC and, for 20 years, produced the World Magic Seminar, in conjunction with Siegfried and Roy and Lance Burton, hosting thousands of magicians from around the world.

Now, Rich, and his wife Sue, host you at the magical Dickens Parlour Theatre. What began as a 75-year-old house and backyard garage, is now the arena for magicians from around the world to entertain you here in Millville, Delaware. “The Parlour”, an adjoining meet, greet and eat spot, opened in February 2011, where the fun continues after the theater performance in the ambiance of a cozy Victorian salon filled with antiques, secret bookcases, and more to delight and intrigue the magical spark in each of us.
