- High energy act
- As seen on America’s Got Talent
Eric’s high energy act is perfect for waking up the crowd at a breakfast meeting. It’s perfect for keeping the otherwise long awards ceremony moving at a rapid pace. It’s perfect for relieving some tension after a long day of work. In other words, Eric’s perfect for your corporate event! Imagine your corporate logo being the finale of the show. Company messages and products can be intertwined into hilarious routines. The CEO can also be the star of the show! As a bonus, Eric controls all of his own music cues via a remote control from the stage. There is no need for a technical rehearsal. In fact, Eric recommends that the sound technician take a coffee break. This helps create a stress free entertainment package. Eric’s goal is to make you look great!
Eric Buss was born in Tucson, Arizona. When he was born, the doctors all laughed at him. That laughter gave Eric a rush, and at the age of seven seconds he knew he wanted to make people laugh when he grew up… Later at the ripe age of 8, he learned how to tinker in his dad’s workshop. Then, at age 16, he started learning magic tricks. When he successfully merged his passion for building with his magical skills he knew right then and there (according to this Bio) that he wanted to be a professional comedy magician who would build his own original props. He has never looked back.
Although most would agree that his gadgets are totally awesome, it’s Eric’s personality that wins audiences over. His high-energy, and hilarious act has been called, “Pure Art, Pure Madness!” It combines crazy inventions and Eric’s high-octane sugar rush of comedy into a non-stop ride of mischief and magical gadgetry that most people could never imagine. Eric not only imagined it, he turned it into an award-winning act that he has performed around the world and on “The Late Show” with David Letterman. In fact, Letterman called his performance “Tremendous, sensational, and beautiful.” And, as 10 million people watched, he managed to win over one of the most difficult audiences in television- the audience of “America’s Got Talent.”
A Second City Comedy School graduate, he has performed on five continents and on TV in seven countries, including a one-hour Korean television special solely dedicated to his performance. Other career highlights include appearances on the “Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon” and the “Just for Laughs” Comedy Festival in Montreal, and entertaining U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
Now, at the age of “adult,” Eric the Comedy Imaginator spends most of his time pursuing his childhood passions either in his own workshop in Los Angeles or on stages around the world performing his clever brand of comedy, glued to his unique style of magic, bolted to his original props, duck-taped to his energetic personality. Audiences love the results!
