This is for the dreamers, and those who defend the dreamers.

In April of 2017 I embarked on a 16 day journey across Asia, performing magic shows for the American troops and their families stationed on military bases.

Entertainers take time out of our calendars to give back to the men, women, and families who sacrifice so much for our country.

It’s also a terrific way to see the world.

I ate sushi in Japan, barbecue in Korea, and who knows what in Singapore.

[Nelson] “It’s called ‘roti prata’.”

Along the way I visited awe-inspiring sights, like Shuri Castle in Okinawa, the tail end of cherry blossom season in Mainland Japan, the Merlion Statue in Singapore, and the Marine Park in South Korea, where I caught a sunset from the top of Solar Tower.

Oh, and I did some magic shows too.

This was my third tour with Navy Entertainment, having previously gone to Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

But this time felt different. You see, all of the American military bases in this part of the world exist for one reason.

[North Korea]

And just days before the start of my tour, the American media went into a frenzy about the very serious potential for World War III.

[Vice President Pence] “We hope to achieve this objective through peaceful means, but all options are on the table.”

[Brian]: “So I’m in South Korea. All I can say is, we’re doing a magic show on base tomorrow.”

[Disney mirror]: “You’re as pretty as a princess.”

When I was 22 years old, a starving artist, and desperately trying to make it as a magician, I opened up a fortune cookie that read:

“Ride your ambition to the skies.”

That fortune remained taped to my desk for years, until I was successful enough to afford a nice, new desk, and threw it away by accident.

If I could go back in time and tell my struggling 22 year old self:

“Don’t worry, it’s all going to work out. Look what you’re going to achieve!”

I wouldn’t.

Because your experiences define who you are.

To my 22 year old self, I instead say,

“Don’t waste your energy trying to avoid failure.

Ride your ambition to the skies.”

So thank you to the American troops for buying me a ticket.

[Brian]: “Yeah! Thanks for showing me that!”

[Kid]: “I’m going to be famous in the year 2030.”

[Brian]: “What are you going to be famous for?”

[Kid]: “Um… movies.”

[Brian]: “Movies?! High five!”

Connecticut magician to entertain American troops overseas again


I am both proud and humbled to announce that I’ve been invited to entertain the American troops overseas once again.

My first tour for the troops was just six months ago. That trip took me to a handful of Naval bases in Spain and Italy for the “Month of the Military Child.” While those shows were designed for the entire family, this upcoming tour is specifically designed for the troops. As such these shows will be very similar in content to my corporate event and college campus performances.

Due to safety concerns I cannot reveal the specific dates or locations until after I return. However, I intend to document the entire trip and the live performances with photos and videos, which I will be thrilled to share with everyone upon my return.

The troops – sailors, soldiers, air force, and marines – and their families make such a tremendous sacrifice so that people like me have the right and freedom to do things like be a professional magician. It is both an honor and a privilege to give back in the only way that I know how: with a evening full of magic, laughter, and wonder.

I’m so excited to announce that I have been invited to spend 10 days in Europe entertaining the sailors, soldiers, and their families on a handful of Naval Bases. It’s been a dream of mine to perform for the troops ever since I learned about the possibility back in college. These families do so much for us, it’s simply an honor to bring some magic and laughter to them.
 
I also look forward to speaking with and learning about the perspectives of the sailors, soldiers and their families stationed on base. Every time I meet new people with experiences drastically different from my own, it is a chance to expand my own worldview. I am always searching for new perspectives to incorporate into the presentations I give as a keynote speaker at corporate events, and motivational speaker at high schools and colleges.
