Magician. Illusionist. Entertainer. Guinness World Record Holder. These words encompass Cleveland performer, Rick Smith Jr. He has amazed audiences during corporate and private performances, as well as on national television, with his card throwing tricks and mentalism routines.
Smith’s love of magic and performing started at an early age. While his peers were playing little league, he was building his portfolio of magic tricks and illusions. By high school, Rick was promoting himself and his magic through posters and business cards and was being booked regularly for birthday parties and family gatherings. Post high school, Rick attended Cleveland State University to study marketing and play baseball.

Through meeting with clients to understanding their messaging and event purpose, he is able to blend marketing and corporate messaging into his tricks and illusions.
