The Norman Magic Experience is the country's most exciting magic show! It's the only show where you see Magician, Norman Ng, smash cell phones with a baseball bat and magically restore them; perform magic in 3D; cause drawings to bend and twist on their own; make objects appear under your rear; impale a card with a hockey stick and much more! The show features never before seen magic, laugh out loud comedic situations and the best part....it stars you the audience! During, "The Norman Magic Experience," members from the audience get to take center stage. Audience members read each other's minds, win cash prizes, and get to experience the magic first hand. The show is interactive, hilarious, and above all else. AMAZING. The Norman Magic Experience has been featured on hundreds of venues and has been seen by more than 500,000 people LIVE and in 48 States. Has been presented on more than 600 College Campuses!
