Strolling Magic:  Chester’s Magic involves intricate sleight of hand artistry, but utilizes everyday objects such as borrowed finger rings, coins, playing cards, dollar bills, etc. Objects actually change in the hands of the audience, naturally evoking laughter and fun.

The impact on the audience is very strong because the magic happened to them. It’s a personal entertainment experience. Share the experience of magic being performed at your very own fingertips!
