Patrick Livingstone first learned about magic when he discovered an old family photo inside a large golden chalice, known as The Vase of Rismar. Once Patrick realized that his great uncle was a professional vaudeville magician, he became enchanted with the world of magic and has continued to grow in the family art. His great uncle, Al Caroselli, was a busy performer and creator of magical apprentice. Into his teens, Patrick became involved in the national junior magician scene and was awarded the first place awards at Abbott’s Magic Get Together and Magi Fest, all at the age of 16. Since then Patrick has honed his craft and takes pride in leveraging deeper theatrical elements into every piece he presents. Patrick performs regularly with The Cabaret Project and on the speakeasy performance circuit in Chicago. He was trained in acting by The Second City and studies magic under the modern master, Eugene Burger. He has just finished his first run at The Athenaeum Theater of his original one-man theatrical show “Brilliant Perception.”
