My name is Barry Mitchell and I'm the Entertaining Encourager. That’s a humorist using illusions, storytelling, and audience interaction to deliver entertaining encouragement and education. I have performed regularly with country music stars. I was the featured comedian at Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction. I was a Nabisco Oreo magician for the Southeast. I have performed in countless theaters and comedy shows. I present lectures regularly on marketing and showmanship to professional family entertainers. I create and markets original magic effects and stories sold around the world. I have performed and lectured at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood and the Magic Circle in London. During my career, I have been blessed to travel the world and share my talents. My greatest passion is that you might use these tools to share fun and encouragement. Some of my magic is just for fun, however, a great deal of it offers educational opportunities and messages of encouragement. There's something here for everyone.
