Reed Masterson
Reed Masterson is a Nationally Touring, Award Winning Illusionists, that brings a whole new meaning to the term Magic Show. With his Signature Rockstar Style, and “Larger than Life Personality” in high demand, he spends more time on stage than off.

He's performed for numerous celebrities, have been featured on ABC, FOX, NBC, THE CW, and just recently performed for a studio audience of 1,000 during the filming of an A&E television special.

Reed's “Fast Paced & Edgy Brand of Magic” has been a “Smash Hit” at College Campuses, Performing Arts Centers, and Corporate Events across America. With years of experience, this magician has taken everything you thought you knew, about a Magician thrown it out the window. Logging 40,000 miles per year with well over 1,000 shows under his belt.

Reed says, “It is his mission to provide each audience with what Dillard’s referred to as “A Truly Interactive Experience.” He do this, by packing each performance full of Brain-Bending New Age Illusions and Ridiculous Stunts. Reed Masterson | Award Winning Illusionist & Magician. Breath-Taking Escapes, Audience Participation, and just “The Absolute Correct Amount of Comedic Relief.” But that’s not all, each of his routines are precisely timed and choreographed to a dynamic, theatrical soundtrack that heightens the senses, and blends every element perfectly into a “Phenomenal, Vegas Quality Show!”

Reed has an Award-Winning Dove Act. Now even though he works 24/7/365 and practically lives out of his truck, and the occasional hotel room, the man takes every chance he get to head home to KY, relax, and spend time with family and friends. Unfortunately, those opportunities are rare but “being able to do what you love and share that passion with the world, is so worth it,” says Reed.
