To all our Valued Friends:
Professional Magician, MARK PASKELL is giving a FREE online Magic Show & Mini-Class this Sunday from 11:00am — 11:40am! This is all FREE! (The trick he’s teaching at the end of the show does require a magic wand, and if you need one Miracle Mile Toy Hall has them available at the store — with curbside service!) Come join the fun as we watch an AMAZING show and then learn a magic trick we can do at home!) As soon as you register, you’ll receive an email with the Zoom link info!
At the age of 7 Mark became fascinated with the art of magic. In the following years he devoured every magic book at his local library, and performed countless shows for friends, neighbors and even at Ford Motor Company where his father worked.
He turned professional at the age of 15, and expanded his skills beyond conjuring to include juggling, mime, clowning and other variety arts. This dedicated development of skills and expertise led to Mark being offered a job in the city of lights — Las Vegas — when he was 20.
Following his time in Vegas, Mark continued to expand his repertoire as he worked across the USA, entertaining both private and corporate clients. Standouts include Steven Spielberg, Brian Grazer, John Travolta, Sam Raimi, Jamie Lee Curtis and Sylvester Stallone, while his corporate client list includes ABC, Health Net, Walt Disney Studios, Amtrak, Shell Oil and many Fortune 500 companies.
Mark is proud to have assisted David Copperfield in his development of Project Magic, a teaching program for handicapped children and adults.
Internationally, Mark has toured with his show through China, Japan, Mexico, Trinidad and various parts of Europe.
In addition to performing, Mark consults, supervises and assists on motion pictures and television shows that need magic, circus arts or practical special effects. He has taught actors to shoot fire from their hands or make a purse float; once he made the entire cast of a theatre show disappear in a puff of smoke! Additionally, Mark has advised Hollywood screenwriters who want accurate depictions of magic and magicians in their screenplays
