Max Maven

Orson Welles wrote that Max Maven has “the most original mind in magic.” Fortuitously, he died before he could revise that opinion. The New York Times observed that Max’s “category-defying mind-reading show veers into conceptual art.” People magazine hailed his work as “a new form of participatory theater.” The Los Angeles Times stated that his “improvisational skill is enhanced by a charismatic animal magnetism.” No, we don’t know exactly what that’s supposed to mean, but apparently audiences in over three dozen countries agree. Max has been a consultant to most of the important names in modern magic and an advisor for more than one hundred television shows. He has published about two thousand tricks, articles, and essays, and now he is very tired.
