Chris Funk has spent the last 15 of his 23 years in magic travelling across Canada and the United States performing a style of magic that can only be defined as “refreshingly different.” Chris has truly mastered the integral elements of each performance and really engages and connects with every audience, while creating standout moments time and time again.
Chris has been performing onstage since the age of 7, first as a musician, then as a magician, and now as a brilliant and witty performer known as “The Wonderist.” He combines Intuition, Influence, and Illusion with side-splitting comedy to create moments that baffle and amuse. Chris is also an improv master, allowing him to take advantage of the moments that make every show different from the last.
Witness the dynamic and engaging magic show that has entertained and amazed audiences across the country!
“Redefining Wonder” is an engaging and visceral multimedia experience that will have audiences talking for years to come. The live-feed camera and interactive videos bring audiences up onstage and into the action, delivering a show that everyone can call his or her own.
Wonder can’t simply be defined with words; it’s a feeling that one defines in his or her own special way. Chris Funk has designed a show that truly encourages audience members to discover wonder while laughing all along the way.
“Redefining Wonder” includes borrowed objects, which disappear and re-appear in unusual places; a violin concerto playing as cards mysteriously float out of their deck; visual effects you’d only find in cartoons; and, of course, mysteries for the mind that will keep guests scratching their heads and wanting more. Plus, every performance features Chris Funk’s signature Prediction, which ends off each show in true mind-blowing fashion. Laugh and “ooh” and “ahh” along with Chris as he blends his own unique style of witty humour and illusion into a show that Penn & Teller dubbed “Irresistible.”
