When asked how he got started in performing magic, he said that magic was a hobby when he was in grade school, it became a part-time source of income two decades ago, but when he was laid off from the phone company for the third time in 2008, he decided that performing was a better livelihood. When asked why he chose this profession, he replied that he gets terrific satisfaction from creating laughter and fun in a world where there seems to be a shortage of laughter and fun. He has received magic awards, but he says his greatest reward is from those who tell him "you made my day" with his performance.
Charlie Fass has published two books on magic. The latest one was released two months ago and is titled "Top Secret Mister Illusion Learn Magic Book". The book is available on Amazon as well as on eBay.
According to the Fountains at Roseville, Charlie Fass aka Mister Illusion, is also scheduled to appear at Fountains at Roseville on the Main Street Prominade on July 19th, July 26th, and August 16th from 7 to 9 PM each of these evenings.
