Category: Convention   Posted by: SIMONE MARRON

Illusion, music, juggling and deadpan comedy collide in this hilarious vaudevillesque spectacle. David Kaplan plays "the Great Kaplan", an earnest vaudeville performer, who while just trying to do a good show, inexplicably gets caught in the crosshairs of the universe. Murphy's Law according to Rube Goldberg.

As his world seemingly crumbles, he manages to tame a rogue bowling ball, juggle furniture, perform feats of prestidigitation, and play melodies on concert balloon, turkey baster and his great grandfather’s ukulele, -- all to the delight of a charmed audience.

Notable shows include a recent month long run at the Wintergarten Variete’ in Berlin and network television appearances on ABC TV’s “The View”, “The Statler Brothers Show” on TNN and “Le Plus Grand Cabaret du Monde” in Paris. David has headlined internationally and has shared stages with renowned performers including Steven Wright, Leon Redbone, David Spade, David Brenner, Harry Blackstone Jr., and the Smothers Brothers.

Kaplan has won numerous awards including first place medals at the Canton Battle of Magicians and the Columbus Magi-fest, and the coveted “Peoples Choice” award at the 2006 International Brotherhood of Magicians. Most recently, he was awarded the 2010 Mandrake d’Or in Paris.
