Vincenzo Ravina is an actual wizard from Halifax, Nova Scotia. His magic is surreal, mystifying, and absurd. At his show, you may end up wearing Mind-Reading Glasses, bestowing luck to the unlucky, trying to the divine the future, testing out a Coincidence Machine, or cowering in fear at the might of the Ancient and Mystical Balloon of Ultimate Power. No matter what, you'll end up laughing and amazed. In the interest of safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, his show can be physically distanced if you wish, and Vincenzo is fully vaccinated and boosted.

He has performed on the CW's hit show, Penn & Teller: Fool Us, as well as CTV News.

He is also a writer. His collection of short stories, Peril & Exploit and Other Mysterious Tales, is available in both print and ebook form.For more on Vincenzo Ravina's writing, t-shirt design, and other doings, visit VincenzoRavina.comJoin the mailing list for infrequent updates, information on upcoming public shows, and secretsssss.
