From Sardinia to Singapore and from Cancun to Cairo, Craig Karges’ performing schedule has taken him around the world, appearing at corporate events, theatres, universities and casino showrooms. Karges has made over five thousand appearances in twenty-five countries on four continents and in all fifty states. Read More >

Karges combines the art of magic with the science of psychology and the power of intuition to create the impression that nothing is impossible. Tables float, minds are read, metal bends and your imagination is challenged because you won’t believe your eyes! Dennis Miller, comedian and media personality, put it this way after seeing Karges perform, “This weirds me out!”

Audiences may be mystified when it comes to understanding how Karges accomplishes what he does on stage but his popularity is no mystery at all. The extraordinist has made over forty national television appearances. You’ve seen him on The Tonight Show as well as CNN, Fox News Channel, CNBC, Lifetime and E! Karges has starred in two, one-hour television specials. The sheer number and diversity of his television appearances is indicative of his widespread popularity.

Performance, the international touring talent weekly, named Karges’ touring show one of the top five variety/family shows in North America. The list also included illusionist David Copperfield and Disney on Ice. Performance magazine called the extraordinist’s production “The next era in mystery entertainment.” American Entertainment Magazine named Karges one of the top five variety entertainers on the corporate circuit.

Karges’ popularity soared while touring college campuses. He was named Entertainer of the Year ten times by the National Association for Campus Activities (NACA) and Campus Activities Magazine. Campus Activities Magazine crowned Karges “The Best Campus Artist in the Last 25 Years” and also recognized him as “The Campus Market’s Most Influential Act in the Last 25 Years!” He is also an elite member of the National Campus Entertainment Hall of Fame.

Even Karges’ peers find his work fascinating. The National Speakers Association (NSA) honored him with the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation and the CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame Award. He was named the top performer in his field worldwide by the international Psychic Entertainers Association. The Christopher Foundation presented Karges with The Mentalist Award for notable contributions to the art of magic.

While Karges acknowledges that he is an entertainer, and showmanship plays a role in what he does, he insists that he does not prearrange anything with members of the audience. Skeptical? The extraordinist offers $100,000, payable to charity, if anyone can prove he uses stooges or confederates from the audience to accomplish his demonstrations.

“My goal is to entertain through the creation of mystery and open minds to unlimited possibilities. I try to make my audiences feel they are a part of something they have never experienced before and hopefully will never forget,” says Karges. Read Less ^
