What We’ll Do

Magician Ben Seidman has been featured on Netflix, Travel Channel, and the CW—but for this very special night, he'll perform live in your living room. Throughout a spellbinding 45 minutes, Ben will invite you into a hidden world of sleight of hand and psychological magic in a show written exclusively for Atlas Obscura.

Guests will be part of an interactive performance full of incredible prestidigitation, but there's a catch... Throughout the evening, one of Ben's miracles will utilize a camera trick—and it's your job to figure out which routine is tainted. Can you spot which illusion is the fake? Or can sleight of hand rival camera trickery? You'll have to tune in and find out.

This virtual experience combines Ben’s acclaimed magical creations with secrets that are over 200 years old, passed down to only a select few conjurors. The result is a delightful and awe-inspiring night that will remind you there is still magic in the world.

This online experience is part of Atlas Obscura’s Wonder From Home initiative. At Atlas Obscura, our mission has always been to inspire wonder and curiosity about the incredible world we all share. Now, more than ever, there’s a need to stay connected—not only to our sense of wonder, but to each other. Follow and share the hashtag #WonderFromHome for inspiring stories, more incredible online experiences, and live streams with the Atlas Obscura community.
