Cultural Tourism DC Calendar
Join us for an afternoon of magic and laughter with Richard Bloch, one of the busiest corporate entertainers in the world. Rich is a frequent headliner on Las Vegas and Atlantic City stages, a motivational speaker (Rich is a two-time recipient of the coveted “Blackstone Award” from the International Platform Association), author and playwright. He has served as scriptwriter and magic consultant to the legendary Orson Welles (who once introduced Rich as “an Edison of Magic”) and to various theater companies, including the Folger Shakespeare Theater in Washington. He has been a five-time nominee for Stage Magician of the Year and is a 2006 Fellowship recipient at Hollywood’s famed Magic Castle.
Rich also has a long history in magic as an inventor, (out of magic, too — he holds a patent on a device to assist disabled ice skaters), builder and performer. He is the originator of more than a hundred effects used worldwide by professional magicians.
In 2010, Rich opened Dickens Parlour Theatre in Millville, Delaware, which has quickly become a favorite entertainment spot for both local residents and tourists, as well as a much desired venue for performing magicians from all over the world. And, he is the founder of the highly successful “Magic Castle At Sea” program, exclusive to Crystal Cruises, which provides their vessels with world class magic performers on every cruise.
