Rudy Coby is the next Can-Am Lecture Series lecturer who will be visiting the Victoria Magic Circle. Please note that this lecture will happen on Sunday, November 18th instead of our usual Saturday because he’s performing at some gig in Mission the night before (Yes, I’m looking at you, Norden! 😉 ).
If you’re unfamiliar with Rudy’s work, read the promo below and see some of his work on YouTube at this link.
Even if you think it’s not your style, keep in mind it’s worth attending the lecture as you *will* learn something you can use and at minimum be entertained for an evening.
With that said, take it away, promo guy…
Rudy Coby, also known as “Labman”, is one of the most creative and bizarre comedic magicians working today.
In the early 1990s, Coby appeared in several small theatrical live shows, and on broadcast television, where he delivered two unforgettable specials, “Rudy Coby: Coolest Magician on Earth,” and “Rudy Coby: Ridiculously Dangerous.” He is known for delivering eclectic and original comedic performances, of which stage magic plays a large part. He also works closely with rock musician and film director Marilyn Manson.
In the mid-1990s, Coby and his troupe of illusionist comrades performed in the Gem Theatre in downtown Detroit for an unprecedented thirteen weeks, thanks to his impressive cult following, and overwhelmingly positive local media support.
After a hiatus of 14 years, Coby returned to performing in 2009, including a well-received twelve-week run at the Galaxy Theater at Valleyfair, a theme park in Minneapolis. In 2012, he performed on the YouTube episode of America’s Got Talent during its seventh season, but did not advance to the semifinals.
Currently a resident of Las Vegas, and member of the Magic Castle in Los Angeles, Rudy now joins the Can-Am Conjuring Lecture Series, as a finale to our 2018 season.
