David Williamson will make virtually any event the one they will talk about for years to come. Considered to be one of the world's most talented magicians, he knows the secret of capturing the imagination of any audience.

A born showman and an unusually accomplished sleight of hand artist, David dazzles audiences with a unique and delightful brand of entertainment, blending heart-stopping magic with side-splitting hilarity.

David is one of the most versatile corporate entertainers working today. Whether he's pretending to be a nervous stress management consultant for 12,000 McDonald's managers or producing a live donkey onstage at a top level IBM meeting, David has the ability to engage, entertain, and educate any corporate group.

Besides his extraordinary abilities as a magician, David's remarkable comedic acting abilities have been put to good use by many Fortune 500 companies. At a national meeting for MTV Networks, David portrayed an inept waiter during the closing night's dinner and dropped a cake in the president's lap! He's been a confused Bell Labs futurist for ATT and a stuffy FCC lawyer for Cox Cable. During what was called the most hilarious, unforgettable dinner of my life by the network executive who was being honored, David played the progressively more inebriated manager of a five-star restaurant at an exclusive Bahamian island resort.

David has woven their corporate messages with his entertaining miracles for countless companies, creating custom trade show presentations which dramatically increase booth attendance while maximizing their investment.

David's gift for evoking wonder mixed with laughter has taken him around the world. Television audiences in Japan will never forget his hilarious segment on Naruhodo The World, one of Japan's most watched shows. In fact, David's segment was voted their favorite by Japanese viewers. From Austria to Argentina, from Sweden to Switzerland, from Berlin to Barcelona, David has proved that the international languages of magic and comedy transcend the spoken word.

David is acclaimed as one of the world's outstanding sleight of hand artists. In 1981 he won first place in the International Brotherhood of Magician's sleight of hand competition. That year he also became the first ever recipient of the prestigious Gold Cups Award of Excellence in close-up magic. For two years in a row, David was voted Sleight of Hand Magician of the Year by his peers at Hollywood's renowned Magic Castle. He is so well respected by his peers that he has also been twice awarded Magic Castle Lecturer of the Year and Magic Castle Parlor Magician of the Year. David is a popular lecturer and performer for the magic fraternity as well. His best selling magic book, Williamson's Wonders, has been translated into four languages.

Whether he's making the CEO of a Fortune 100 company magically appear onstage at a national sales meeting, entertaining an exclusive gathering at The White House, or rocking an amphitheater full of telecommunications employees with laughter, David's winning ways break down the barriers put up by even the most jaded business group.
