Mark Collier has been delighting his audiences professionally for over 20 years. He has performed in such countries as Japan, Tahiti, Italy, France and Holland. He is a familiar and welcome sight at many of the exclusive parties held in the Santa Barbara area.
His hilarious, irreverent, tongue-in-cheek style of self-deprecating comedy contrasts with his surprising skill as a sleight-of-hand artist and accomplished juggler.
One of the things that make Mark Collier so successful is his universal appeal. He has a unique ability to have fun without making fun. Everybody has a good time. More often than not, Mark is the butt of his own jokes. At times, he may appear hopelessly lost and then pull off the most improbable miracle. He leaves the audience delighted, ecstatic, and laughing.
What’s the best thing about magic?
“The Delight! Magic can rock your world in a way few other art forms can. People need to have their universe turned upside down once in a while. There is an unpredictable element. Some people are uncomfortable with it but sometimes it can seem like real magic even to me! How many artforms can make the hair stand-up on the back of your head? People need to be astonished. Life can become so predictable. It is rare to see something that you have never seen or anticipated before. Magic can do that.”
