At age 12, Dan Birch visited Disneyland's magic shop with his
family. His first purchase included a trick with three different length ropes that magically
became the same length. It is still a part of his show to this day.
Shortly after this, he read about a trick where the magician showed a
single handkerchief and then produced a live white dove within it! This captivated Dan's
attention and a career was born! He soon began performing his magical dove show at local
parties, banquets and churches in his hometown of Sacramento, California.
At age 16, Dan attempted a career as a race horse jockey that lasted a
few years. Due to strict weight regulations of 110 pounds, Dan then decided to return to
his original dream, which was a career as a performing magician.
By age 23 Dan was entertaining at many church and social gatherings in
Sacramento. By age 28, he was earning a full-time living, performing as an illusionist!
Having created the complete appearance and character of a "real
magician," Dan Birch appeared all over the world on luxury cruise
ships. He also opened the shows for such great artists as Dana
Carvey, Harry Blackstone,
Jr., Harry Anderson and had featured roles on the "Columbo" and
"Quantum Leap" television shows.
Dan can now be seen headlining regularly at the world's most prestigious
nightclub for magicians, "The Magic Castle" in Hollywood, California.
