Gilbert, Sparkles, and Israel

George Gilbert

Equipped with a suitcase full of props, masterful sleight of hand, and a knack for the comedic, George has been using his talents to amaze and amuse audiences around the globe for over a decade.  Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, George first found his love of magic in elementary school after reading a book on Harry Houdini, whom he has since made very proud.  He has performed all over North America and Europe to raving review, chasing his childhood dream of mystifying audiences while making them laugh.  Whether George is performing his award winning act in a theatre, at an outdoor festival, or on national television, he is sure to astonish even the most skeptical audiences with his quick wit, natural charm, and clever illusions.  George produced and hosted Baltimore’s “Some Variety” show twice, and has taken his show to Germany (Sankt Wendel Magic Competition) and Scotland (Edinburgh Fringe Festival) to rave reviews.

Daniel Israel

Daniel’s hard-working ethics, cool demeanor, and witty banter set him apart as an industry-leading entertainer. With over six years of experience in both street performing and shows at festivals, fairs, and churches, Daniel is a natural performer, whose daring escapes and cheeky contortions keep audiences in awe. He recently won 3rd Place People’s Choice Award at the Seaport Village Busker Festival in San Diego, CA, and is a local favorite in SWFL. Also hailing from Baltimore, Maryland, Daniel travels the country with his well-loved 7-foot unicycle, straitjacket, and juggling clubs, always ready to amuse and entertain. His “comically kooky” style is fun for all ages, and maintains a professional, sophisticated edge that appeals to all. Outside of performing, Daniel is also a skilled video editor and runs a successful YouTube channel.
