Derek Hughes is, first of all, a magician. However, he keeps his audience savoring his whole performance by personalizing his magic acts with theatrical inputs and sometimes even mentalist acts.
He is already proven through the years he is a great performer by participating on MTV, VH1, Comedy Central, Penn & Teller’s Fool Us. His biggest achievement on TV performance so far is getting to in the finals of the America’s Got Talent show in 2015.
His act from the finals was funny, as well as magical:
What Derek Hughes Has to Offer
There is a reason why his acts have managed to get on the top stages. With over 30 years of experience in the illusions field he is managed to master:
- MicroMagic where he does card, ropes and ping-pong ball tricks
- Theatrical Illusions
- Comedy Magic
He is the performer who is committed to blowing the minds of the audiences and turning skeptics into believers.
That might be the reason why Derek Hughes is the only magician ever invited to perform at HBO’s prestigious Comedy Arts Festival. He is also the person to fill for the legendary Mac King at Harrah’s in Las Vegas whenever needed.
In his live shows, he combines his witty sense of humor with his unique performance in the art of conjuring.
Besides the TV and Vegas shows, he has also performed at Business and Corporate events, as well as College campuses across the United States of America.
Why Your Audience Will Love This One-Of-a-Kind Magician
Derek Hughes does not only promise; he truly delivers on stage. As Magic was an important part of his life even during his childhood surgeries, he gives it all when performing for a live audience.
