“When you want something badly enough… believe in yourself and in the magic of your own dreams; then ANYTHING is possible.” – Brad Ross
International Star Illusionist
Dubbed “illusionist extraordinaire” by ABC TV, Brad Ross has been hailed as a world class, modern-day showman with “boy-next-door” charm.
Brad has been dazzling audiences & mesmerizing millions for over 2 decades. With a style & personality all his own, he is guaranteed to put smiles on the faces of young and old alike. Brad is recognized by his unparalleled high energy, originality and his ability to inspire and entertain people from all walks of life.
Bitten by the “magic bug” at the age of 5, Brad became intrigued by the art of magic. After seeing a magician perform at his 5th birthday party & taking a magic class at the local Jewish Community Center, he was hooked!
Every day on stage, I hope I bring the audience into a magical world of possibility
What started out as a hobby soon developed into something far greater — Brad realized that magic enhanced his sense of confidence and self-assurance. It opened up to him, a world where anything could happen.
As I got older, I started realizing the gift that magic had given me was the same gift I wanted to give audiences when I performed. Every day on stage, I hope I bring the audience into a magical world of possibility. And after experiencing my illusions, I hope I can inspire people to find the real magic all around them.
– he says.
In 2005, after scouring the globe looking for just the right fit, Field Entertainment in association with The Walt Disney Company signed Brad to a multi-year deal headlining the first ever Disney magic production called “Disney LIVE present’s Mickey’s Magic Show,” an opportunity that was a dream come true for Brad and one that would share his magic with the world.
Brad has developed a remarkable inborn talent and turned a passion into his profession. In fact, a profession that has taken him around the globe, with multiple world tours, performances on 5 continents, in 25 countries and in 16 languages.
Recognized as the consummate professional performer, Brad has created an extensive entertainment range equally comfortable in the most intimate of settings for private celebrity events to the largest theatrical stages, television and multi-million dollar productions.
Featured on over 500 national & international TV programs, Ross’ ability to connect with audiences via television and internet webcasts is equally as appealing as his work LIVE on stage.
In 2010, Brad Ross was honored with the prestigious Merlin Award presented by the world’s largest organization for magicians, The International Magician’s Society.
