Magic at the Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort
If you follow me on social media, you undoubtedly were living vicariously through my family during our October beach trip last week. It really was a great time to go, and thankfully, we missed Ian by a few days. I’ll get to our trip in another post, but for now, we’ll stick to the magic. Our whole reason for going was because I was booked to do a corporate event on Wednesday night. I figured, “Might as well take the family.”
So, I was convinced I had performed at Myrtle Beach’s Hilton Resort, but after seeing it, I wasn’t so sure. In any event, it was great hotel and had perfect events space for large corporate events. The room could’ve held a few more people, but the event had around 400 in attendance. I started off the night by doing close up magic for their cocktail hour. Then, after their dinner, I did my hour long show, I’m Not Famous. And believe it or not, I’m not done. To close out the night, I emceed their awards ceremony by reading blurbs about each of the award winners. This stuff was hilariously written, which made it very easy for me to breeze through.
No one saw this coming…I may or may not have.
If I had to pick a favorite moment of the night, this would be it. The first was during the watch steal with two girls onstage. If you’ve seen the show, you know that I always allow for people to record the moment when I give the watches back. However, during the beginning of this trick, I saw someone holding their phone up high a few rows back. So I told her that I would allow her to record the end of the trick front row if she wanted. Now, I already had two watches in my pocket that I had stolen earlier, and as the phone camera wielding lady came forward, I saw she had a watch on as well. So I clearly was not about to let that go to waste. I stole her watch within a few seconds and then got her setup to record the moment. After giving back the watches to the two girls onstage, I said to the lady with the camera, “I wanted to give you the same experience.” She looked down at her wrist as I pulled her watch out of my pocket with the soundtrack of screams from the audience.
I am on a constant hunt for moments like these. Love when they work out this well!
Great night and a great client! Here’s their review:
“Our crowd thoroughly enjoyed Bryan’s cocktail hour tricks, amazing performance and fabulous overall job at MCing our awards ceremony using his voice acting skills. We laughed, we were stumped, we laughed harder! Bryan even had a special way to make our absentee award winners feel extra special! Bryan is truly 5-star all the way!”
