Tom Ogden

Magician and Entertainer


Pennsylvania native, Tom Ogden developed an interest in magic at an early age. Tom learned early that if wanted to be successful in magic, he would have to devote himself to years of endless practice, and that he did. Tom has become one of the top, if not the best slight-of-hand and close-up artist working today. For two years in a row (1983-1984), Tom was selected as the "Parlour Magician of the Year" by the world famous Magic Castle.

After Tom Finished college in the early 70s, he began his professional career, performing illusions as a center ring attraction on Circus Kirk, a small Pennsylvania based circus operated by college geography professor Doctor Charles W. "Doc" Boas.

After several seasons with Circus Kirk, Tom was asked to join the much larger Clyde Beatty Cole Bros. Circus. His experience with the circuses gave Tom the opportunity to experiment with new ideas, props and different approaches towards audiences.

Tom has appeared on many television specials such as "Desperate Acts of Magic", "The Great Magic of Las Vegas" (TV Mini-Series), "The World's Greatest Magic 2" and as a reoccurring character on the soap opera "The Days of Our Lives".

In 1992, Tom was invited to perform for former President Ronald Reagan at his 81st birthday party. The president was thoroughly amazed Stating "You are a great magician. I just wish I could make things disappear like you do. I could have used that trick on a few people in Washington."

Tom continues to perform today at corporate events, trade shows cruise ship, resorts and hotels.
