Chris Funk will be appearing for the ninth time on show ‘Masters of Illusion’ in August

This will be Funk’s ninth appearance on the show where he will be bringing his blend of awe-inspiring magic combining live music and witty humour to TV screens.

“These appearances combine magic and my guitar. Something never seen before. It’s surreal to think I got to film this in front of a studio audience before COVID shut everything down, and I can still share it with the world,” Funk said.

Funk has performed magic across the globe, and on 24 national and international TV shows including CW’s Penn & Teller: Fool Us and NBC’s America’s Got Talent.

About Chris Funk: Chris Funk the Wonderist is a corporate and performing arts touring magician who blends a world-class, Las Vegas-style magic show with side-splitting, sarcastic humour and unforgettable live music.
