The 9th Annual The Magic & The Wonder show by Kosair Charities at Kentucky Center. The show was MC’d by WSBT’s Meteorologist and Magician Paul Emmick. He helped bring the show to life.
The main hosts of the show are Patrick and Janice Miller, a husband and wife duo from Louisville, KY. Pat and Janice do mostly illusions that blow your mind. I know we kept trying to figure it out ourselves. The illusion below is the shrinking woman. You can check out more information about the happy couple on their website, Magic Illusions by Pat and Janice.
Another performer was the hilariously talented Stephen Knowles. He started ventriloquism as a very young child and it stuck. Currently Stephen Knowles can be found at the Comedy Barn in Pigeon Forge, TN. He definitely makes you laugh and in awe of his amazing talent.
The second half of the show showcased first Charlie Frye & Company. For over 20 years Charlie and his wife, Sherry, have been entertaining. According to his website, Charlie wanted to be Batman and since that backfired he followed in his father and grandfather’s footsteps, who were clowns. His wife Sherry, whom he met at the circus was a showgirl, aerialist, and a classically trained ballerina. He is an amazing juggler with a great sense of humor. Feel free to jump over to his website and learn more about him as well.
Then finally but not least was Mac King. I actually knew him from my childhood. When I was about 8 or 9 I had my parents record a magic show on VHS. For all you youngsters that is an old persons version of a DVD or BluRay Disc. I still have it actually and he was a performer on there and I absolutely loved him. On the TV show and on this live show he did the getting rid of the hiccups trick! It definitely flashed me back to my childhood. King has been performing since he was 10 and definitely still entertains to this day. You can see him now in Vegas! Learn more about King on his website as well!

Now as much as I appreciated the freebie tickets for this generous cause, the seats were awful for the type of magic that was performed. Honestly they should cut off tickets after a certain section or have some sort of images and cameras going around. We were in row A on the top balcony which was super duper dusty btw. HOWEVER greatly appreciated making memories with my kids to do the review.
