Hello and welcome to my page, I am a Performing Artist

As a magician and illusionist, John Kaplan has enjoyed a national career spanning over 30 years during which he has performed thousands of shows in over 500 distinct Canadian communities. Career highlights include performances at Expo '86, opening ceremonies headline act for the Canadian National Men's Curling Brier, appearances with Jay Leno and creating and performing halftime shows for the likes of the Calgary Stampeders Football Club. Most of John's career, however, is devoted to turning family fun into thousands of dollars for schools and community organizations through his Fundraising Magic™ performances ... family-friendly shows that feature John's unique and original presentations combining magic, music, comedy and grande illusion. Additionally, John has enjoyed "giving back" by sharing the tricks of the trade with youngsters through his popular Magic Camp programs, where participants learn sleight-of-hand skills, misdirection, performance techniques and other aspects relating to the art of magic.
