Chris Blackmore offers a unique event opportunity as a professional illusionist, comedian and spokesperson. A popular club and banquet performer, Chris regularly appears (and disappears!) in shows throughout the country and the world. Chosen to entertain thousands of guests daily at Disneyland California and Walt Disney World in Florida, Chris also provides conventions and corporate events with his brand of clean and hilarious entertainment.
Moving easily between comedy and illusion with a sharp gift of gab, Chris keeps all kinds of shows moving and full of energy. His talent for quick wit and thought provoking humor is balanced by a charming personality that wins over audiences; in fact, Chris both reaches his audience and entertains them at the same time.
Chris has presented shows with altar calls and a clear Gospel message, events designed for seekers with a light introduction to Christ, and straight entertainment for purely secular audiences. His programs can take a variety of formats, too; he can act as your emcee, provide strolling entertainment during dinner or perform a full stage show complete with lights, special effects and illusions with coordinated music. Chris offers a very flexible program and can even incorporate your special event theme or message into the performance.
,br>In Chris’s testimony, he proclaims, “The Lord uses our gift of comedy and magic by opening doors that we had never even considered entering. We have met and been influenced by so many people in the church that have changed the course of our lives for the better."
Chris came to Christ as an adult with a wife and two children. After being raised Catholic, then a lifetime of searching many different "religions," Chris found the Lord through some good friends in Orlando, Florida. Chris and his wife accepted the Lord on New Years Day 1996.
"The Lord is currently teaching us patience (we have two kids!) and the passion for service. Also, we are learning to share with others how our relationship with Christ has changed our lives and can change theirs. We decided to bring our comedy and magic into churches because we felt a strong calling to use our gifts and talents to share The Good News of Jesus Christ through laughter, comedy and amazement. Some of the most rewarding shows we have done have been Christian events. We feel a purpose and reason for performing.
…The Lord uses our gift of comedy and magic by opening doors that we had never even considered entering. We have met and been influenced by so many people in the church that have changed the course of our lives for the better."
"Chris Blackmore did a fantastic job here at Celebrate! The event went very well; he was very professional. The audience laughed a lot. He's very good on his feet and moves with the audience depending on the situation. He did a great job tying in an act with a gospel message, and we are already hearing positive things from that! We consider Chris a friend now, after just this one weekend together and we would definitely recommend him to others." - Music Pastor, Celebrate Community Church
"We were very pleased to have Chris Blackmore with us. His program of magic and comedy was well received by our church family. What he did was very appropriate for the setting and enjoyed by all from children through senior adults. Chris shared his faith in the midst of his act in a very effective manner. We would gladly recommend Chris to a church for entertainment and Christian witness." - Senior Pastor, Eastern Hills Baptist Church
