Adam Trent is a wunderkind, a show-business prodigy and professional magician. He began doing magic tricks at the age of nine. He taught himself the illusions he performs. In addition to his astounding tricks, Adam is a comedian, a writer, an actor, a dancer, a singer, a composer, and a really nice guy.
Adam Trent has already amassed more than his share of professional honors. U.S. News and World Report included him on their “10 Most Influential Youths in the Nation” list. And he’s the only magician to date to win two consecutive Pacific Coast Association of Magicians (P.C.A.M.) Pro Magic Challenge medals.
Professional Magician Tricks from Adam Trent
Now, there are basically two types of illusions that professional magicians stage. One is close-up magic; making a coin disappear is an example. Adam can do countless close-up feats, and he displays those tricks on large screens so that large audiences can see them. The second kind is grand-scale magic as when a magician makes people levitate or disappear. Adam offers plenty of those spectacles.
Adam performs all over the world as a professional magician; his brand of entertainment knows no cultural or language barriers. Trent is a family magic act as both children and preteens adore him. He’s been featured on the Disney Channel and has performed for families on many cruise ships. And adults of all ages find him delightful. That’s why he routinely sells out comedy clubs, civic centers, and college venues.
In fact, captivating college students is an Adam Trent specialty. In his campus shows, he engages crowds with topical remarks, and he peppers them with hip jokes. It makes sense that college audiences would hold a special place in Adam’s heart because it was as a college student in Los Angeles that his career began to blossom. During those years, he took the stage at many of L.A.’s most prestigious comedy clubs, and a hobby turned into a full-fledged passion.
But even when he’s performing for the rowdiest university audiences or comedy club patrons, Adam always keeps his act completely clean. And even as he blazes new paths in magic, he maintains a respect for the past and especially for the pioneers of stage illusion.
This video offers a taste of Adam’s approach as a corporate entertainer. It’s an entrancing mix of the cutting-edge and the traditional. In the clip, he recreates one of Harry Houdini’s best-known illusions: suddenly switching places with an assistant who’s sealed inside a box. But Adam gives this time-honored stunt a contemporary spin by infusing it with music, dancing, and a playful attitude.
