John Gelasi



John Gelasi has been performing magic since he was given his first magic kit at the age of six years old. He currently enjoys card magic the most, especially packet tricks and full-deck routines.

John currently resides in his hometown of Woodstock, Illinois, where he spends his summers performing for audiences all over northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. If you find yourself in one of John's classes at his high school, you'll likely see him nearby with a pack of cards, surrounded by a crowd of stunned spectators.

John's performances of various effects have been featured on personal web sites and newsletters by such magicians as Cameron Francis and Paul Gordon.

Some of his greatest influences in magic over the years have been Cameron Francis, Dave Forrest, Paul Hallas, Aldo Colombini, and Paul Gordon (to name a few).

"And the best stuff….Scatterbrain! I LOVE that effect. That is such a clever plot. People do multiple cards to multiple location plots all the time but seeing it done in a packet trick was just beautiful. If you like the sound of the Scatterbrain plot then buy this for that effect. If you are a packet trick lover who would like to see some clever thinking on the B-wave plot, then this is a worthy buy." - Erik Ostresh
