Stupid Tricks for Clever People
At the age of 17, Frank DeVille discovered a love and natural knack for magic. He was soon performing on the street, bringing in enough money to pay for his BFA in Theatre from George Mason University.
Frank has a very diverse, eclectic show taking classic illusions and magic tricks and devising completely unique methods of performance that often fool fellow magicians. Frank’s degree taught him the art of improvisation, keeping the audience on the edge of their seats or doubled over laughing.
Frank is lauded for drawing huge crowds, part of that success being attributed to the strolling magic teaser he performs before every show. He captivates individuals with his up-close sleight of hand and impossible tricks mere inches from their eyes. These “teaser” mini-shows create a huge buzz and guarantee a spectacular turnout.
Highly acclaimed by his peers, his esteemed awards include the 2008 People’s Choice Award, 2008 and 2009 winner of the “Robert Escher Close Up and Parlor Magic Competition,” and in 2009 he was awarded first place in the “Comedy Caravan’s Battle of the Hands.” Watch Frank perform and you will quickly understand why Alain Nu, star of TLC’s TV series “The Mysterious World of Alain Nu” said “Frank’s 6 bill repeat is the best I’ve ever seen.”

". . . the show was a really huge hit. We had probably about 200 people come out to it, which for us, is a big turnout. Not only did the people come out, but the people loved it. I think the teaser definitely makes a huge difference with that. People saw a little bit of it earlier and they really wanted to see more. I think a lot of people came because they saw some tricks during his teaser . . . The show was definitely awesome. Frank did an amazing job and the crowd got really into it. I would really like to look into bringing him back in the future." – Florida Institute of Technology – Cecilia Finch
