Performance Style: Sheldon’s repertoire is magic that is contemporary, fun, and highly interactive. Sheldon’s on-stage persona is the same as his off-stage persona: clean-cut, good humoured and respectful.

Sheldon combines magic with high-energy comedy and plenty of audience participation. Magic-lovers around the world have enjoyed this interactive and often hilarious performance. The audience is a part of the action from the moment the show begins, as Sheldon makes borrowed items vanish and reappear, brings inanimate objects to life, and calls people on stage to perform impossible tricks for their peers.
Large-Scale Illusion Show: This is not your standard illusion show… there are no sparkly costumes or cheesy dance numbers. Instead, Sheldon’s non-traditional approach combines current and funky music with magic to create a new style of non-cliché illusion. Witness Sheldon pass through the spinning blades of an industrial fan, and see a person magically squeeze into a one foot by one foot box. Whether cutting someone in half, escaping from impossible restraints, or attempting death-defying feats – Sheldon’s show is sure to entertain.
