Eric DeCamps is the
personification of a magician. He is debonair and engaging, enchanting and
His performances are filled with compelling stories and visual artistry. Mr.
DeCamps has developed a style of intimate conjuring that permits his
audience to become part of the performance. Familiar objects like a
champagne glass, a few silver dollars, a piece of tissue paper, a silk cord
and deck playing cards are a few of the objects that share the stage with
him. And, at every turn, he performs the seemingly impossible.
Mr. DeCamps has been a serious student of the art of magic for over 30
years. He served his apprenticeship at New York's Magic Towne House. Later
he performed regularly at the celebrated Greenwich Village nightclub, Mostly
Magic, for more than 12 years. In recent years, he has performed throughout
the United States, Europe, Japan, and South America at exclusive society
events. Fortune 500 companies like Time Warner, Merrill Lynch, General
Motors, Bear Sterns, American Express and many others have engaged Mr.
DeCamps to entertain their most valued clients.
The Society of American Magicians awarded Mr. DeCamps the Gold Medal of
Excellence for Close Up Magic. He is only the second magician to receive
this prestigious award in the 105 year history of the organization.
