Intelligent. Sophisticated. Intellectually stimulating. Your guests may ask, “Is it real?”
Mental Blocks is a sophisticated and intellectually stimulating program of cutting-edge entertainment designed for a grownup audience. Your guests will be treated to an engaging performance that features cerebral and mental magic at its finest and incorporates a full array of thought reading demonstrations, unique plots and bizarre stories.
The show is highly interactive — everyone becomes a part of the show which features more sleight-of-mind than sleight-of-hand. The magic happens in the hands and minds of your audience.
By the end of the show your guests will have been taken on a journey of exploration of the inner mind and outer funny-bone. When they go home, many will be asking, “Is it real?”
This show is guaranteed to amaze and entertain and is suitable for an audience of just about any size, from a living room to a full-length after-dinner offering at an awards dinner, wedding reception, sales meeting, or corporate retreat.
Tricky Bits offers a magical experience that is targeted specifically to a grownup audience. The show features both classical and contemporary magic with a little something for everyone: magic, comedy, mystery and plenty of audience participation.
Like all of Ron’s shows, this one is also high-energy, and the performance is diverse, engaging and entertaining.
This show has been receiving enthusiastic response from retirement residences in the Greater Toronto Area as it is able to cater to audiences with limited mobility.

Tranquility Place Retirement Community
“It is hard to find an entertainment or activity that engages everyone and we often put a lot of energy into an event only to find that we didn’t connect with some part of our audience.
Your performance solved that problem for us very nicely. You managed to connect with every segment of our staff – even reigning in the sometimes boisterous youth! Everyone called upon participated with enthusiasm and I could see from the looks on their faces that you truly did amaze many of us.”
