Unprecedented, historic tour continues, now through the desserts of California and Nevada. Mini Cooper jettisoned! Immigrant magician proven right!

I told Kevin the car wasn't big enough, and as usual, the dumb foreigner was right.”
— Magician Ash K.
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, July 6, 2021 / -- For Immediate Release


"I told Kevin the car wasn't big enough, and as usual, the dumb foreigner was right," quipped magician Ash K. about the tour's acquisition of a compact SUV. "It's still packed to the gills, but that's what happens when you drive two magicians doing three kinds of shows plus close-up magic through 48 states: you have a lot of stuff!"

Ash K., aka Northern California’s funniest magician, was named the BayList Winner in the arts & entertainment category by readers of The San Francisco Chronicle and Hailing from the tiny Eastern European country of Balka (he helpfully explains, "Go to Poland, and make a right - can't miss it."). Ash K. is often described with quirky and vaudeville come to life.

Kevin the Cap practices what he calls Smart Magic for Smart People. Like Ash K., he is a Magician Member in good standing of the internationally recognized Academy of Magical Arts, known for its clubhouse, Hollywood's Magic Castle.

Kevin noted, "We have another fixable problem: several inquiries on social media are asking, 'When/where can we see the show?' when we are touring only because of the bookings we receive. Whether it's summer camp shows, retirement communities, libraries, or a home kids party, we have something for everybody ... and no hidden fees or charges." He continued, "We're also the only magicians we know of to have published a complete price list. Live entertainment is a "want" as opposed to a "need," so the sales and marketing process is often lots of back- and-forth."

"Not with us!" chimed in Ash K., "Kevin made it super easy. You just go to the website,, pick which one of us you want to see, and which show – from strolling magic to a full stage show – and fill out the form. Kevin then confirms, you sign and get us your deposit, and you're all set for seeing some GREAT magic, LIVE! No Zoom shows on this tour!"

About the Shows
“Our shows are quite different,” explained Ash K., or as his friends call him, Ash. “Kevin is the gentleman conman – utterly charming, and his magic is stellar.” Kevin then offered his description of Ash K.: “Ash K. is something from a century ago: a vaudeville act, complete with his inimitable accent. Quirky, and big fun. We think it’s nice to give bookers and audiences a choice.” Their route will take them from sea to shining sea, you’ll be able to chart their journey on their website,

From major cities to farming towns, they intend to perform for people in all manner of places: libraries, retirement communities, regional theaters, summer camps – even private parties along the route. “And magic classes!” chimed in Ash K. “Be sure to mention the magic classes Kevin teaches to adults, kids, or both!”

“The object is that three letter word: fun,” said Kevin. “It’s been a tough year-plus for humanity, and Ash K. and I decided that driving our two shows across the country, bringing them to audiences of all kinds, would be a great chance for people to see our shows who otherwise couldn’t. We are coming to YOU.”

About the Tour
Kevin further explained the historic origin of the tour: “Several historians of magic told us that we are the first to drive through all 48 states in a season. From ancient times until the 1940s, entertainers rode on horses, then in wagons, and then cars from town to town, bringing their comedy acts, ventriloquism, gymnastics, dramatic readings, and magic acts to crowds eager for diversion and something different. With the rise of movies nearly a century ago, then aviation, that migratory version of our profession disappeared, and entertainers simply take a plane to their next engagement. We’re a bit of a throwback, and audiences love it.”

* * Now that more Americans are vaccinated (as are the two magicians), and the Center for Disease Control has determined that surfaces are not how the infamous virus is transmitted, a July 1st start date seems reasonable, and while traveling, Ash K. & Kevin the Cap will continue to adhere to public health protocols as determined by the CDC and individual communities.
