Client Testimonials

Dear Century,

I can’t begin to tell you how enjoyable you made our recent party.  More than 100 people were in attendance and I have heard nothing but rave reviews for everyone about your great magic show.  You were able to perform magic appropriate for all age groups and kept everyone so entertained.  Doing 2 shows was certainly appreciated as this assured everyone had a seat in the theater.  Needless to say you will be highly recommended to anyone looking for a wonderful addition to their party or event.

Many thanks again.  Feel free to give our name to anyone wanting reference on your fantastic talent.

"Century went out of his way to customize his show to what the needs were to our small business group. He was well prepared, on time and delivered as promised. He interacted well with our group." -Kay A.

" He was great at adapting to our school gala fundraiser needs. We had a French Quarters theme and he was a street vendor on our "Bourbon Street." He worked the crowds well as they walked along the "street" and he engaged them with short and very clever magic tricks. A perfect addition!!" -Allyson L.

"Magic Century is a genius! Having him was definitely the highlight of our event. His balloon twisting is BEYOND AMAZING. The kids loved that they could ask for anything and he could produce it. Each balloon creation was a work of art. Way beyond the usual things. I could not recommend him more!" -Sarah S.

"My kids loved their birthday party. Magic Century was prompt and on time. He was very courteous and kind to my children and to all of their birthday guests. Both the children and the adults enjoyed the show. I would definitely recommend Magic Century." -Tera C.    


As a boy, Century Russell was fascinated by every aspect of the performing arts. At age 10, he was riding unicycles, juggling, and starting his studies in sleight of hand. He worked summers in a small New England circus as he honed his magic skills. By age 20, he was performing in local fairs as a fire-eater and doing handcuff and straightjacket escapes.

In the late seventies, Century made his home in Utah and worked demonstrating magic in the local magic shop while performing at the Promised Valley Playhouse, the Center Theatre, and local nightclubs. At this time he was the first performer ever to be licensed to perform on the streets of Salt Lake City.

Century Russell currently performs as Magic Century. He has mastered some of the finest performance pieces of classic and contemporary magic. He has developed dozens of original tricks with coins, cards, and ropes. All have been stamped with his distinctive mix of comedy and illusion.
