Part time prestidigitator Alan Fisher is one five North American magicians to qualify for the 2018 FISM World Championship of Magic being held in Busan, South Korea, this July. Unfortunately, the World Championships are holding out on that all important travel money, so Fisher is performing a pair of live shows in Murfreesboro, Tennessee to fund his trip. See the bottom of this post for more details.
At the World Championships, 100 stage performers and 50 close-up magicians will be performing and competing in front of an expected audience of between 4,000 people.
Fisher qualified for the World Championship during a regional event in Louisville Kentucky, with a jaunty act called, “Professor Time.”
In recent years, Fisher has settled into a day job producing provider directories for a health care company, but he’s no weekend wizard. Fisher starred in the national tour of the “Big Dad Burlesque” for six years (where he met his wife) and toured comedy clubs for another eight. He’s appeared on The Nashville Network and Comedy Central performing stand up and magic.
Fisher will be performing alongside Jimbo Hooten at 7pm on April 6th and 7th at The Little Theatre, 702 Ewing Ave. in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Tickets are $10 and are on sale now.
