Fred Walker - Magician
Fred Walker with his wife and magical stage partner Heather, have been performing together for 25 years.
Magician Doug Henning once told Fred Walker - "Fred, the real secret of entertaining people with magic is not about the tricks, it is about how you connect with the audience", then Henning proceeded to WOW a crowd of press people with three pieces of paper towel.
Fred took this suggestion to heart, and has since developed a performing style which is based in his love for people. Whether he is on stage in his full evening grand illusion show, at a corporate event, manning the booth at a trade show, in the spot light at a banquet, or just standing up close with a small group of people, you will sense Fred's enthusiasm, and genuine interest in others in his performing style.
Fred's performance style is not too serious, his shows are filled with comedy, and funny bits of business. Lots of audience participation creates many memorable moments in each show he performs.
Past appearances include:
Commodore Cruise Lines, Hershey Lake Compounce, Six Flags Great Adventure, Kneobel’s Amusement Resort, Hershey Lodge, Red Baron Inn, Caesar’s Pocono Resorts, Split Rock Resort, Trump Plaza Atlantic City, Dale Carnegie International Convention Anaheim CA, AT&T, Bristol Meyers Squibb, Johnson & Johnson, Merendino Contracting, Princeton University Engineering Department, Mettler Toledo, hundreds of college appearances through the National Association of Campus Activities, and hundreds of school shows under the title “It’s Up To Me” (the show that teaches self-esteem to children through magic).
