How it all began.......


Magic in St. Louis and the Riverbend area! Looking for entertainment for your child’s birthday or special event? 


Chris Carpunky has been performing magic for over 30 years. He started late at 18 years of age after being inspired by a David Copperfield special on CBS. 

He became the second youngest magician to teach magic at a University at only 24 years old. David Copperfield was the youngest.

Over 30 years later, he is still performing at birthdays, school assemblies, libraries and other family venues.

Chris Carpunky has appeared on Fox2 News twice and Show Me St Louis twice. 

He has also been featured in over 25 newspaper articles with three of those making the front page. 

In 2010 Carpunky was asked to audition by NBC for America's Got Talent and was offered a "Fast Pass"which he would be one of the first 10 auditions skipping the line. However, his wife was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer so he declined the offer to care for her. She is fine now and kicked cancer's butt!

In 2014 Chris Carpunky started a magic theater in Alton, IL called Alton Magic Theater. However, after 26 performances and lack of space, he decided to go back to performing for private events. However, the idea of starting the theater again is going through his mind.
