Bob Gebert Magic

Written & Performed by Bob Gebert

You'll never look at magic the same way again.

DeMystifying Magic is a full-length one-man show created by actor, writer, magician Bob Gebert. Though packed with magic effects, it is much more than just a magic show. The show tracks a legendary performer's career from age five to eight-five. We watch his life unfold through his on-stage performances.

DeMystifying Magic was performed many times in the Houston area in the late 90's. After a 12-yeah hiatus, the show has been dusted off and polished and is currently is being done in various venues in the Los Angeles area.

The show was presented as a staged reading at the KTC INKubator Series in Los Angeles in 2012.
