Canada’s largest magic organisation, the Canadian Association of Magicians, has asked Ryan to bring their National Convention Gala Show to a dramatic close on two separate occasions. Aptly titled Masters Of Magic, this public evening show featured performers from around the world and was hailed as showcasingThe Magician’s That Magicians Come To See!

Since 2000, Ryan has transported his grand illusion revue show across Canada, delighting audiences from every corner of the country . His annual 80 city tours have raised over two million dollars for charities such as The Children’s Wish Foundation and The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, earning him praise as “Canada’s Foremost Illusionist.

Ryan’s extensive repertoire include a mix of physical grand-scale illusions, award-winning stage routines and intimate close-up magic. The show travels with advanced lighting, special effects and complete video integration which has been finely crafted to be adaptable to any venue, regardless of its limitations.

In 2002 he teamed up with the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra and renowned conductor Michael Reason to create a show that flawlessly combined the two art forms. The production was so unique that to accomplish one of the illusions, Ryan learned how to conduct the entire orchestra and featured a piece of music composed specifically for Ryan and one of his illusions by Hollywood composer Heather Schmidt. The Hamilton Spectator proclaimed “[the show] was so expertly done that the young girl seated next to me could only gasp, ‘How’d they do that?’ I wondered the same!

In 2008, Ryan was asked to be a guest headliner in the prestigious World Festival of Magic tour in New Zealand. Only four other magicians in history have ever had the honour of headlining this tour in 40 sold-out shows across 16 cities to over 150,000 people.

Other outstanding, and albeit unusual accomplishments, include levitating a two tonne SUV, vanishing a firetruck, making a car appear in the desert sands of the Persian Gulf and vanishing over 100 politicians, lawyers and Canadian mayors. Spectators claimed this last feat to be his greatest achievement; that is until he brought them back.

Critics agree that Ryan Joyce presents “…the most spectacular grand illusion show in Canada today” and “one of Canada’s most amazing shows.” This bewildering spectacle of the mind and imagination is positioned as “The Must See Event Of The Year!” ■
