"Funny, lively, intimate and utterly baffling!"

-The Chicago Reader



Chicago-based Magician Dennis Watkins creates highly personal, highly engaging private events from coast to coast.  Watkins works directly with you to create custom entertainment that features your guests in mind-blowing magic and impossible mentalism.  Private Events can be truly magical, but Watkins knows that your event is never about him.  Your event is about your guests and Watkins creates entertainment that truly makes them the stars of the show.

Watkins's one-man-show, The Magic Parlour, has been running for more than 5 years at Chicago's historic Palmer House Hotel.  This show is the perfect fit for private gatherings of 50 or fewer guests.  In its life at the Palmer House, The Magic Parlour has hosted countless family gatherings, anniversaries, birthdays, holiday celebrations, and even 4 wedding proposals!
