Charleston City Paper selected Blackwell's theater show as one of the top shows in the Charleston to catch three years in a row!  


Stephen Colbert calls Howard, "Absolutely Amazing" and Kylie Jenners says, "I loved your show."

The Charleston Post and Courier says, "Blackwell brings magic to the stage... and his show and stage presence are captivating." 

Howard has performed all over the world being one of three performers to perform a magic show in the Arctic Circle, he also won "Guantanamo Bay's Got Talent" (TRUE STORY!) and even talked his way out of going to a Turkish jail by doing magic (Another TRUE STORY!).  He also runs the premier magic venue in Charleston, SC, The Charleston Magic Parlor.  Blackwell is the past president of the Charleston chapter of the International Brotherhood of Magicians, a member of the Academy of Magical Arts (Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA) and was even nominated by the AMA for the prestigious "Stage Magician of the Year" Award.


Howard has been a student of magic for as long as he can remember.  He draws his inspiration from many pioneers in the field of magic and feels it is important to recognize those who have paved the way before him.  His major inspiration as a magician comes from Rudy Coby, Harry Anderson, Teller and David Copperfield.  Please support these talented performers, they are the true masters in their field!  Howard is a proud member of the Academy of Magical Arts and International Brotherhood of Magicians
