Dedicated to thrilling audiences with spectacular illusions and increasing awareness for preserving wildlife and the environment, Dirk Arthur presents "Wild Magic." The acclaimed magician has been featured on NBC's World's Greatest Magic, David Letterman, and his own documentary, "Big Cat Magic" on Animal Planet. In this fast paced and exciting show, breathtaking big cat magic is interwoven with comedy, beautiful dancers, and large scale illusions. His natural affinity for animals immediately came into effect as he worked with rabbits, doves, large birds such as emus and ostriches and eventually large exotic cats. His family of big cats currently holds no equal in the performing world and includes rare white, orange and snow white tigers; a panther, African and Snow leopards; a bobcat and even an African lion. During his show, audiences can instantly see his love for his animals as they are treated with the utmost respect and gentleness. Arthur is a leading advocate of preserving endangered species and for the humane and proper care of all animals of the world. When Arthur was a child, he got his first magic trick from a cereal box and magic quickly became an obsession. While growing up in Los Angeles, Dirk Arthur was able, through Hollywood's famed Magic Castle Club and Academy, to learn from and be mentored by the world's top professionals and has devoted his life to perfecting his craft. His original illusions include a mid-air vanishing white Tiger, a hilarious appearance of a flapping white duck and he is recognizzed as the first magician in history to make a helicopter appear! This helicopter illusion has since been widely copied and become a staple of many other magicians, although none can duplicate it quite as well as the originator.
