$450 - $3000 per event
A FIVE STAR entertainer and two-time People's Choice Award winner who has performed for celebrities like Martin Scorsese, Miranda Lambert, Clay Matthews of the Green Bay Packers and many more!

As seen on Fox 41's "In the Morning" with Keith Kaiser and putting his spell on the Voice Tribune's Angie Fenton on WHAS 11's "Great Day Live!" with Terry Meiners, Darshwood uses the alluring art of magic, mind reading and hypnosis to devise hilarious and captivating shows for your special event and motivational programs your staff will NEVER forget!!!

Darshwood is a vivaciously charismatic entertainer who, since a very young age, has been warming the hearts of audiences with his delightfully animated personality and outrageous assortment of witty antics. A genuinely unique practitioner of sleight of hand artistry, magic and hypnosis - Darshwood never fails to create an unforgettable experience of thrills and wonder with each and every single performance. Only a few minutes with this charming trickster provides an experience that will be talked about for years to come!

CERTIFIED HYPNOTIST AND NLP PRACTITIONER- Born to Perform

The grandson of a Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey Circus clown and nephew to a grand stage illusionist, Darshwood continues to uphold the family tradition by sharing the joys of comedy and wonder with everyone he encounters. Calling himself a postmodern magician, Darshwood has diligently studied the ancient art of prestidigitation in hopes of inspiring contemporary audiences with a cutting edge technique and sophisticated presentation, making him a hero among peers and granting him active membership among two of the craft's most distinguished fraternal orders - The International Brotherhood of Magicians and The Society of American Magicians - who recently honored him with two consecutive People's Choice Awards for Close-up Magic. He is a graduate of the McBride School of Magic and Mystery in Las Vegas and an American Alliance of Hypnotists certified practitioner who has now incorporated the dramatically impactful elements of mind reading and mesmerism to his act, Darshwood not only spends a great deal of time performing but also shares his wisdom in the trade as a consultant for other professional magicians and speaks at scholastic institutions about the relation between psychology and the art of conjuring by exposing the mind's natural tendency to be fooled by illusion. He recently appeared as an honorary delegate for the United States at INDIA Jaal, a national conference of magicians at Asia's very first Academy of Magical Sciences.


Leo Weekly says: "A sleight of hand and a trick of the eye are all Darshwood needs to entertain you for hours... bringing clever trickery to the center stage."

"When you need an act that hits on all cylinders, Darshwood is the man! Incredible magic, intelligent humor, and creative thinking plots him above all the rest. A fantastic entertainer!" – Dennis Alm of Dennis Alm Productions, Talent Coordinator for Comedy Caravan

"Darshwood can walk into any room and within minutes have everyone in the palm of his hand. I know of no other magician who mixes business and pleasure with such natural ease." – Matthew Landan, proprietor of Derby City Espresso

"Great show!" – Dr. Robert Escher, former president of the International Brotherhood of Magicians

Featured corporate programs include: "MAKING THE IMPOSSIBLE POSSIBLE: Inspiring Limitless Ambitions" and "THE MAGICIAN'S TRICKS: A Charisma Building Workshop for Leaders and Innovators." Sensational acts for schools, fundraisers and private events also available!

Every year we have a meeting of the minds with all of our regional managers. This year we decided to bring in a speaker from outside the company to provide a motivational talk. We were NOT dissappionted!!! Darshwood performed his magic and taught us to use the same audience engaging skills he's developed as an entertainer to engage our customers and our associates. This was an incredible program and we were very satisfied with the results. Everyone had so much fun; which is somewhat of a rare occurrence at our annual meetings. We will definitely be doing something like this again in the future.

Having Darshwood the Conjurer at this event took it from being ordinary to extraordinary. I am so pleased that I did it. People are still talking about him. Darshwood was the consummate professional in every respect. He worked the crowd in the beginning, put on a fantastic show in the middle, and continued to entertain the guests afterwards which is exactly what I wanted. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering having a magical entertainer at their special event!
