Radatz, who was recently featured on Masters of Illusion, will be presenting his One Man Show of magic and comedy with a holiday flavor geared to entertain the entire family.

Radatz was born and raised in Detroit and began his magic career at the age of 6 after receiving a magic set from his grandmother for Christmas. He continued honing his craft while attending Catholic Central High School and Central Michigan University where he recently received the Outstanding Young Alumni Award.
Radatz is no stranger to the metro Detroit area with performances over the years for General Motors, Chrysler, Soaring Eagle Casino, Andiamo’s, Jeff Daniels, the Detroit Tigers, and several others. Time Magazine said, “He is the magician to see.”
Recently Radatz completed his first headliner engagement at one of the premier casinos on the famed Las Vegas Strip as well as a live national tour of the television series Masters of Illusion on which Radatz was one of the featured performers.
He has studied with many of the masters of magic and was the only magician to have served an apprenticeship with Harry Blackstone, Jr. His unique combination of amazing illusions, entertainment and audience participation has captivated audiences around the globe. To date, Radatz has toured 45 U.S. states, 37 coun- tries and six continents.
