Get an up-close look at the master magicians at the Sparta Avenue Stage Holiday Show

The Sparta Avenue Stage will host its special “24 Karat Close-Up Magic” show on Saturday featuring three award-winning artists.

Meir Yedid, Thomas Solomon and Eric DeCamps will perform some of their favorite magic up close and live.

Yedid has appeared on numerous television shows, live broadcasts and conferences, and has served as emcee at hundreds of receptions. A sleight of hand, Meir was voted Magician of the Year in 1997 by the Society of American Magicians in New York. In 2003 he was guest of honor at the prestigious 4F convention, and in 2016 he received the Milbourne Christopher Foundation Close-Up Magic Award for lifetime achievement in the arts.

Solomon has performed his award-winning magic at Bally’s MK, The Roxy, The New York Comedy Club, “Magic at Coney” Island with Off-Broadway shows (Theatre of The Macabre), (Ellusions) and many more places. He performed twice at the Magic Castle in Hollywood, California and is known as “The Thinking-Man’s Magician” and “The World’s Greatest Escape Artist”. He has made 19 escapes during his career in the United States and abroad, as well as an escape from the handcuffs of a 20-pound cannonball at the bottom of the Hudson River in New York.

DeCamps’ accomplishments include being voted Magician of the Year by the Society of American Magicians. He was only the second person in the Society’s 119-year history to earn its prestigious Gold Medal of Excellence for Close-Up Magic. He is also the recipient of the distinguished Milbourne Christopher Award for Close-Up Magic. He was a star performer at former New York nightclubs like The Magic Towne House and Mostly Magic, where he learned, honed, and mastered his craft.

“We are thrilled to have a triumvirate of three awesome magicians for these special holiday shows,” said owner Joe Garsetti. He said Yedid and DeCamps will be in Las Vegas next month performing their numbers at the Society of American Magicians Medal Gala.

“We’re thrilled to have these three amigos sharing their art on stage and can’t wait to feel like a kid again in the midst of a busy holiday season,” Garsetti said.
