Comedy Magic show planned Saturday at Carthage's Esquire Theater

Magician Eric Eaton will perform at Carthage’s Esquire Theater on Saturday.

“The Magic of Eric Eaton” will come to the Esquire Theater in Carthage on Saturday, Oct. 5 at 7:30 p.m.

“It’s a comedy magic show with a lot audience interaction,” Magician Eric Eaton said. “Quick wit stuff. It’s an all-ages show, but there’ll be plenty of innuendos and humor for the adults as well.”

Eaton, who grew up in Longview, became interested in magic at age 7, and at 15 he started doing street performances in Hollywood and Las Vegas. This past year he has been on a tour of comedy clubs and theaters.

Eaton really enjoys the audience participation.

“Because my show is very audience interactive, I never know what I’m gonna get because part of it’s based on the volunteer I bring up. ...Obviously if they’re more into it, we can have a lot more fun time,” he said. “So it’s definitely fun just to be one on one with them.

Tickets are $15 at the door or $10 ahead of time on eventbrite.com. VIP tickets, which included a poster and front seating, are $20 both at the door and ahead of time.

“With Carthage, we have a smaller town,” Eaton said. “It gives them something different to do, something unique. I do travel all over the country bringing my show places such as clubs and theaters, and I’ve had the chance to work with many celebrities. That’s just a unique experience that you probably don’t get regularly in Carthage.”
