The Magic Duel


DC’s highly acclaimed magical entertainers Mark Phillips and Ryan Phillips perform distinguished live shows at The Mayflower Hotel in DC and The Synetic Theater in Crystal City. As part of The Magic Duel, the two comedians compete with each other for the title of “best magician,” which is determined by the audience’s votes at the end. The interactive show is not only “magical,” but also political, and absolutely hilarious. Make no mistake, though; the performances are not intended for children. You can also hire the duo for special events.

Brian Curry: The Good Liar


Described as “a mind reader, a human behavior expert, and a LIAR,” Brian Curry creates unforgettable moments by pretending to read people’s minds and predict their future. What is more exciting is that he reveals some of his secrets at the end of the show to let you realize why he is “The Good Liar”. He performs at Washington, DC’s Capital Hilton, but you can request special events, which you can specifically design together with Curry. Among Curry’s clients are Microsoft, NASA, AT&T, and the Capital One Arena.
