There are tricksters, and then there are magicians. Evan Northrup takes a background in traditional illusion and infuses it with contemporary creativity.At the age of 15, Evan took to the streets for a trial-by-fire education in live performance, and failed spectacularly. After earning a few dollars in pennies and nickels, he was determined to improve. The years that followed took him through four countries, presenting thousands of street performances, to eventually earning his stripes. Moving off the sidewalks, Evan now performs in a host of indoor venues, entertaining at weddings, corporate get-togethers, private parties and special events.
