The Showman:

At one time Ryan Madden was "The World's Only Lounge Lizard Escape Artist" and has traveled throughout North America in stadiums, theatres, corporate events, outdoor stages, and a variety of other venues. With his show, Ryan blends his diverse talents with magic and a unique comedy style that's wowed audiences across North America.


Ryan Madden began training as a magician/escape artist around 27 years ago with a particular focus on handcuffs and historical restraints from all around the world. His love of history leads to his performing in an Old Victorian-styled circus sideshow. When he was with that show he honed his multiple talents to a level where not only did he learn how to play in front of audiences of all ages and sizes, but he also perfected how to work them into a frenzy.  His shows were renowned for giving those in attendance a welcomed respite where they could leave all their troubles and worries at the door.

In The Movies!

Ryan has worked in the TV & movie industry in front of and behind the camera. He has hand-doubled doing magic tricks and performed on-screen card dealing. Ryan has directed independent film and TV projects. and has had his hand in producing. Now most recently is deep diving into the world of post-production VFX.


Over the many years, Ryan has collected interesting objects from all of his travels to add to his already impressive arsenal of artifacts of a historical and eclectic nature. Now he works with the TV/movie industry renting out his objects and lending himself out as a consultant with magic and escapes.
