Harry Maurer


Nominated for a prestigious “Atlantic City Entertainer of the Year Award”, Harry Maurer is a magician with a quick wit and a charming personality who knows how to get around audiences. Las Vegas Entertainment Today described it best when they said: “His easy manner with the audience combined with a magical skill second to none, is what the audience remembers after the curtain goes down.”

With regular appearances in the casino showrooms of Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Biloxi Mississippi and aboard top cruise lines around the world, Harry has lead a diverse career opening for such stars as The Supremes, Rita Rudner, Joey Bishop, Billy Ekstein, Rich Jeni, Rosie O’Donnell, Frankie Avalon and others.

He has entertained U.S. presidents, celebrities and international royalty, and has won numerous awards on behalf of companies and corporations including “Best Television Commercial” for the Printing Industry (NAQP) and “Best Convention Booth” (for the Builder’s Association).

Harry Maurer’s shows are fun, but never offensive, and are the perfect blend of magic, comedy and audience participation.

The Perfection of Deception
Magicians Who Changed History!
Generously Sponsored by Janice and Michael Barry

Did you know that Houdini was a SPY for the U.S. Secret Service? Complete with a PowerPoint presentation, this is just one of the facts you will discover during Harry’s lecture about magicians who have affected history in ways that you would never have expected!

After his hit comedy and magic performance onstage last year, Harry is back with a lecture presentation unlike any other!

  • One magician who illuminated his backyard with electricity decades before Thomas Edison had even invented the light bulb!
  • A world famous magician who was recruited as a government spy (for two countries!)
  • A magician who was asked by his government to use his magic to stop a political uprising!
  • Another who wrote “Manuals of Deception” for the CIA.
  • One magician who through a blend of gumption, theatrics and applications of science, physics, psychology and a deep understanding of human nature, was responsible for winning one of the major battles of World War II!

It is a fascinating presentation filled with mystery and intrigue and just a “little bit of magic” about magicians who have literally changed world history. The lecture is a fun and fascinating presentation that will interest anyone who enjoys history, computer science, political science, psychology and human nature!

(And at the end of the lecture, all attendees are offered a FREE copy of a very special book developed by a university in London teaching them various tricks they can learn whose secrets use principles of math and computer science!)
