(Albuquerque, NM) — My start in entertainment came as a magician when I was just 17 years old. I entered a high school talent contest called, Mr. Cibola. It was my first time ever performing in front of an audience. It was 500 of my peers. Call it a baptism by fire. I went on to win the contest and from that moment on knew I wanted to make my living as an entertainer.

Over the years the show has changed but nothing quite like it did when I created Behind the Magic.

The show is an opportunity for the audience to peek behind the curtain and find out how the magic came to be, and learn some funny background on performances. Like the time I ended up on the side of I-40 with the Oklahoma State Police doing a command performance.

Behind the Magic is a Robert Smith Presents attraction. For more information, visit www.robertsmithpresents.com/behindthemagic.html.
