Chicago has always been full of magic and at one point the magicians of Chicago became famous for their particular style. It's an up-close and personal kind of magic that doesn't have the grandiose spectacle that other acts bring to the table, but is every bit as astonishing. In some ways, it's much more fun since the audience is part of the show. The Magic Cabaret brings that golden age of magic, mystery and mischief back to to Chicago audiences hungry for the unusual. In every show, PT Murphy and David Parr present classic conjuring in the Windy City style, using every day objects to bring their stories of old-time magic to life. With an emphasis on audience participation, and liberal doses of humor, spookiness and surprises, the magic cabaret is actually fun for everyone, old or young. Learn More

The Stuntmen united in 2009 for a single purpose - to never again perform in a "talking heads" comedy sketch. They were weary of seeing scenes in which two modern-day people sit and talk about events that occur off stage. The Stuntmen deliver an eclectic array of sketches inspired by the action film genre. And yes, the action occurs on stage. They're physical, frenetic, and we're not afraid to take a few bumps and bruises for the cause.
The Stuntmen's shows are filled with car chases, ninjas, time bombs, time travel, bank heists, and unblockable kicks. Conspicuously absent? Scenes in which two generic friends talk about their day over a latte.
The Stuntmen bring over 30 years of combined comedic performance experience to deliver shows that demand the audience's attention. Action movies are high stakes, over-the-top affairs with heroes and villains and conflict; add a humorous twist, and voila! The Stuntmen.
