My name is David Slick and I will automatically pay your fee to gigmasters for booking me. I'm a magician, juggler, fire breather, unicyclist, stilt walker, and more! I have been entertaining professionally throughout Dallas-Fort Worth since 2002 and have traveled as far as Shanghai, China. I have broken multiple Guinness World Records. My ability to entertain all ages of audiences is due to my original comedy routines, high energy, and world-class skills. Here is a brief description of the skills I have developed over many years of practice.
Juggling - I'm the best in the D-FW area. I perform juggling cued to music with up to 7 balls, 7 rings, or 5 flaming torches. Very comical routines include eggs, bowling balls, and machetes.
Magic - My magic routines are all comedy and mind-boggling. You'll witness tricks with cards, knives, an 8 ft. drinking straw, police thumb cuffs, and much more. I love getting audience members to help me pull off a big trick.
Unicycling - You won't believe the stunts I can perform on an off-road unicycle such as riding up and down stairs or juggling while volunteers throw props at me. My 5 ft. tall unicycle is a crowd pleaser every time.
Fire - Juggling 5 flaming torches, wearing a hat that is set on fire, spinning fire around my body, and best of all REAL FIRE BREATHING!
Balance - Nearly an object from pencils to chairs can be balanced on my face while I do a sit up. Imagine this at your party: Standing on a (surf) board that is wobbling atop a pipe, the entertainer juggles 3 machetes to Surfin' USA by the Beach Boys from his PA system. That's not the half of it. On his head is a coconut cup with milk in it and he's wearing a hula skirt and lei!
Stilt Walking - Complete with the long pants and fake shoes. This spectacle is a big hit for any event. If interested in Uncle Sam around July 4th, book me WAY in advance.
Card Throwing - After setting up my backdrop and attaching a wall of Styrofoam to it, I place volunteers in front of the wall. I then throw regular playing cards across the room and into the wall. With a 15 second lesson, the volunteers then throw the playing cards into the wall around me! This is a hilarious and safe parody of throwing knives around volunteers.
Teaching - As a college graduate who specialized in education, I can effectively teach my skills to large crowds using my arsenal of equipment.
Other - Light-up juggling and magic props, devil stick/cigar box manipulation, Buddy the Elf costume (from the movie Elf), and wireless microphone, and balloon twisting.
I am insured for $3,000,000 and have never had an accident. If my skills and comedy can be of use at your event either on stage or strolling about, please contact me. I'll be happy to answer your questions and customize my show to your wishes.

"David is one of the best performers we have ever had perform for our reading club. He instantly had a great rapport with the young audience and had them in the palm of his hand throughout the performance. David is one of those unique characters whose love of his craft is evident and infectious! We will definitely book David again!" Janet Marley, Children's Librarian, Kilgore Public Library
"Our event wouldn't have been the same without Slick. He is an extraordinary talent and had the kids talking about the show for days after our event. Slick was very flexible and great with our group of 50 plus kids and parents. We would definitely have him back and recommend him to all of our friends and family." Mary Fran Jarzynka, St. Francis Church, Grapevine
