Take me out to the ballgame!

This was a fun project that developed over the course of a couple years. Although I've been performing the effect for many years, I added a baseball theme story presentation, and had the idea of doing it on an infield design. Then I read Dick Steiner's book, Trifecta, where he describes using baseball, football, and golf designed table tops for his effects. I wanted the design to be on a dinner napkin so I could use it in a more versatile manner. So I found the material with a green field like color and visited my tailor, Maya Diaz to cut and sew the napkins. Then it was off to Rick & Alison Ivansek at AG Werks to design and print the infield design.  These came out very nice. My friends Anne Philips let me wear the Diamondback's World Series Championship shirt and hat which was very cool, and Frank Frounfelker did the camera work which looks great. I'm grateful to all these team players for their help producing this video!

Finally, I'd like to dedicate this to the cherished memory of Daryl, a dear friend and one of the greatest magicians I've ever known, who taught me the effect almost 40 years ago. 

PS. This effect has an additional ending which has to be seen live to be appreciated. Seriously now, as an attraction, I imagine performing this in a private show for the Diamondback's team & organization, as well as the VIPs in the suites. If any of you know anyone who can arrange this, please let them know!

Shawn Eric Spotlight with Scott Faver



Here's an interview with Scott Faver, creator of the Event Ensemble, a network for event professionals.  He is a great DJ and overall entertainer.  Check out his website, thepartyfavers.com.  We had a great conversation about some of the effects I feature in my shows, the impossible gifts I present for birthdays, reunions, first dates, weddings, and anniversaries.  By the way, Scott and I have performed together at bar & bhat mitvahs, a dynamic duo of magic & music fun!  I highly recommend us!

Ideal for Golf Tournaments!

Recently I had the pleasure to perform at a celebrity golf tournament, the Chip Fore Charity event, for the Crain Family Foundation at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale.  We got a lot of great photos and some video as well.  Here's the best one starring Brandon Webb and friends as we worked some surprising magic together.  You won't be able to see the specific effect, but you will see what it looks like when I entertain at your event, ie. the affect I have on groups of people.  That's the real Magic Fun!

Driveways, Patios and Poolside Parties


This is the home of generous friends in Tempe on New Years Eve and center stage for the event.  My first official driveway show, complete with lights and sound, was for about 30 people at a neighborhood block party.  The driveway has a slight elevation which increased my visibility.  Everyone gathered in a semi-circle, small groups seated in lawn chairs and standing room only on the street, socially distanced and wearing masks.  Two teenage boys, who have a strong curiosity about magic, agreed to help and they nearly stole the show with their antics.  A Covid safe event to ring in the New Year, in the driveway of "a rusted out garage", this show was one to remember! 

For home entertainment, driveways, patios and poolside, are ideal outdoor areas where Shawn's Magic Fun can be best enjoyed.  Call 602-403-7309 to learn how we can amaze your guests at your next home party.
