Cody Clark sees the world a little differently. The Louisville magician was diagnosed with autism when he was just 15 months old. Today, at age 24, he now combines advocacy and awareness into much of his work as a professional magician.
Clark has a solo show titled A Different Way of Thinking that combines his magic routines with personal stories about life with autism. He has also collaborated to give a portion of his show’s proceeds to Families for Effective Autism Treatment, a local Louisville organization. He already has several dates on the road where he’ll be performing this piece, including stops at Dallas Solo Fest and the San Diego Fringe this summer. His website has more details.
For a first-hand look at what to expect from his act, check out his recent appearance on local ABC affiliate WHAS 11 to talk up the show.
