About the Event

 What happens when there is a show and none of the acts show up?  For comedian-magician Dana Daniels, that is no problem, because it is  all part of his hilariously funny and successful "The ‘No' Show."  Daniels is one of America's top comedian magicians working today, is  regularly featured at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, and  has appeared on numerous television shows such as “Lance Burton Magic  Special,” “Evening at the Improv,” “Masters of Illusions” and “The  Secret World of Magicians.”

“The ‘No’ Show” features Dana Daniels portraying a clueless theatre  janitor who is drafted into the show to cover for the missing  performers.  As pianist and master of ceremonies Richard Allen opens the  show with a lively ragtime tune, Dana anxiously informs him that none  of the acts have shown up.  In a desperate need to “save the show,” he  convinces Daniels to perform all the acts, including “Waldo the  Magnificent,” whose every trick goes awry and “Francois the French  Juggler, who juggles a bowling ball with just about anything borrowed  from the audience.  Daniels closes the show by bringing out “Luigi the  Psychic Parrot in a Banana Tree,” attempting to prove to the audience  that his little green friend is truly clairvoyant.  Together, they  perform such miracles as reading the mind of a person on a cell phone  and turning an audience member’s $100 bill into bird seed.  

“There is no show like ‘The No Show,’ because no show in the world is  designed around the magic, juggling, and the broad comic  characterizations of the brilliant Dana Daniels,” says James Gruessing,  artistic director for the Norris Center for the Performing Arts.  “He  brings to the stage years of performing skills encompassing magic,  juggling and improvisation wrapped up with impeccable comic timing.”
