Bobby Borgia Wows Erie Fans with Big Tricks

Posted: Updated:

Bobby Borgia has entertained audiences all over the world with his mind blowing magic tricks.

On Friday, he pulled some tricks out of his sleeve for magic fans in his hometown of Erie, PA.

Hundreds came out to the Erie Playhouse to see Borgia's show.

"I have no idea what's going to happen and that's probably the best part about it," said audience member, Patrick Thiem.

"With Bobby, it's always high energy," said the show's director of lighting, Ryan Patsy.  "You never know what's going to happen and it's always a good time," he said.

Borgia is best known for his illusions.  He designed the entire show, himself, and incorporated 3 large screens around the stage so that audience members can see his every move.

"I could be in a 10,000 seat theatre or a 500 seat theatre and everybody can still see," said Borgia.  "If I wanted to do a trick with a ring where I make it disappear and reappear over there, the trick is now projected 40 feet tall," he said.

Borgia is also the Chief Magic Designer for the movie "Now You See Me".

Borgia said he works to inspire audiences with every trick.  His local fans said they couldn't be more excited to have him back in Erie.

"I think it's great for Erie to have an act of this size," said Thiem.

And if you missed Friday's show, Borgia will be back at the Erie Playhouse Saturday night at 7:30 p.m.
