Have you heard of the Curiosidades Show? Most likely not. Let me explain...
The Curiosidades Show is an intimate experience of magic, illusion and art.
Comprised of a highly skilled team of close-up performers, we create and
share in the art of magic while presenting a stylish close-up magic show to
Here's the interesting part...
This was all designed for the tiny island of the Dominican Republic. Because there was little
to no sleight-of-hand magic on that island, it was an excellent spot for us to
create a magic scene -- our perfect vision.

On November 13th, 2010 I traveled to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic to catch up with the rest of the Curiosidades team so we could give live performances, as well as appear on Dominican television. With 18 live TV spots sprawled over several stations and two theatre shows at the Teatro Le Fiesta, all to be performed in a week's time, this was one hectic schedule. Nonetheless, we had been planning this media blitz and show for over six months, and now it was all coming to fruition. But none of us expected or even prepared for what was about to happen.
Three days into our tremendous experience, during the extremely popular daytime show EL SHOW DEL MEDIO DIA, the Curiosidades team made history by stopping time - literally.
At the group's command, viewers were treated to an extraordinary experience as clocks in the country simultaneously stopped. This miraculous effect has only been attempted once before in the history of the Dominican Republic, when Uri Geller visited the nation in 1976.
Never in my life have I been a part of something so magical!
