Biography

Lee Cole's playful personality, spontaneity, and razor sharp wit give this magic show the feel of a stand-up comic's. A positive and lively presentation lifts spirits and turns a room full of strangers into friends. A dollar bill is borrowed, turned into a hundred, and here's the amazing part; it is given to the volunteer!

This show is about people, your people. Hilarity ensues when the CEO's tie is accidentally cut off, purses vanish from banquet tables and watches disappear from surprised conventioneer's wrists!

If you like magic, you'll like this show, if you don't like magic, you'll love it. When asked for his formula for success, Lee Cole says, "A banquet audience just wants to have fun, it doesn't matter what type of act it is, if it moves them to a state of play, they're happy. Adults want to have fun; they just need help getting there. Put 400 kids in a room and they'll make their own fun, adults have forgotten how to do this. As sophisticated as my show appears, it's not about my skill level as a prestidigitator, the bottom line is, I'm taking them by the hand and moving them to a state of play. Everything I say and do involves the audience and nudges them toward having fun. That's what they like about it, it's about them, them, them."

Getting an audience to a state-of-play is easier said than done, it's about a million subtle things: Remembering names, making eye contact, an ever increasing pace, original material, keeping it clean, and using "hooks." A "hook" is a term that means making it matter to somebody. For example; watching someone eat apples while juggling is OK but, it's much more entertaining to watch when wild throws spontaneously pull Lee off the stage and into the audience where he straddles a surprised person's lap and takes lightening fast bites inches above their head!

After seeing Lee Cole perform at a fundraiser attended by America's top CEOs, Las Vegas legend Tony Orlando was so moved that he flew Mr. Cole to the Mohegan Sun (the second largest casino in the world), for five shows.

Twenty-two years of experience, thousands of banquet shows, and tours that have taken him literally around the world, make Mr. Cole a seasoned entertainer that will delight your guests.

Whether your VIPs say it's mind-blowing stand-up comedy or hilarious magic doesn't matter; hit'em with both barrels, give your people an experience they've never had, a memorable evening, and you'll be rewarded with high ratings.
