One Fine Day …

Chris was born. He remembers that day. He cried like a baby. Nobody knew at the time, but Chris was Born To Amaze!

Ottawa magician, Chris Pilsworth, discovered a passion for magic at an early age. His older brother was to blame. He had borrowed magic books, from the local library, in which  Chris discovered a secret world.

Oddly enough, not long after this introduction to magic, the “World of Magic” show, came to Ottawa’s National Arts Centre. It was a wonder-filled experience and sparked Chris’ desire to learn more!

After one full year of study, Chris was ready for the big time. His first performance was … a birthday party. The show went well, the fee was paid (five dollars) and the rest, they say, is history.

Chris continued to practice and perform while in high-school and university. He earned his degree in Industrial Design from Carleton University and then embarked on his full-time career as a professional magician in Ottawa.

Since then Chris has appeared on TV, won awards, performed locally, nationally and internationally and met some really incredible people. It’s been a magical journey that continues to inspire him every day.

Despite our rapidly changing world, one thing is certain. Chris isn’t disappearing anytime soon. He’s having way too much fun! He invites you to be a part of his magical journey.
