Current WINNER of Penn & Teller’s FOOL US brings his all NEW Intimate Illusions to the Four Seasons Westlake for only one night.

On Sept 16th, Ivan appeared on the CW’s Penn & Teller’s Fool Us Season Finale and fooled the pants off veteran Las Vegas magicians Penn & Teller and was declared the winner.

Currently on a national tour, this stop here at our beautiful Four Seasons will included the amazing illusion that FOOLED Penn & Teller, as well as, incredible coincidences, psychological illusions, and spectacular brain games all wrapped around spellbinding story-telling. And don’t forget the musical score by Celine Dion’s main star cellist Irina Chirkova. You’ll witness Amodei manipulate time, alter someone’s fate and even discover a spectator’s destiny – might it be you?

“Absolutely gorgeous all the way through.” Penn & Teller

“Spectacular” by BroadwayWorld

“Brilliant & Enthralling” by Beacon Hill Times.

World-renowned magician Ivan Amodei stars in his critically acclaimed INTIMATE ILLUSIONS show at the famed Beverly Wilshire at the most glamourous address in the world Rodeo Drive and Wilshire Blvd.

Amazing, Spectacular, Unique. I've watched David Copperfield before and this is 100 times better... why? Because it isn't the magician up there doing tricks... Ivan does an amazing job connecting with the audience and getting participation from random people in every act so that you are left in awe at how he did it.. For example, he did a trick... More

Friends asked if we were interested in seeing this show at the Four Seasons in Palo Alto. Not knowing anything about him we thought it might be fun. What an understatement - it was a ball. Ivan has a small set of stage props, is accompanied by a celloist who provides backdrop music similar to the old silent films, has... More

My boyfriend and I saw Ivan perform at the Four Seasons is Westlake and it was such a fun and unique date night! The show was small and intimate and really engaged the audience. Ivan's magic was unlike anything we have ever seen before, definitely a must see!

One word review: Aaaaaa-mazing Want details? Read on.. First off, I am a big fan of magic. I've been to many magic shows and have been to the Magic Castle over a dozen times. After each show, I would try to figure out how the magic was done and most of the time I could figure it out. This is... More

I have seen Ivan's performance quite a few times and every time he has been outstanding with his perfectionism to truly make you perplexed through his humor, stories, and enlightening disposition. This has been the perfect gift for me to give to many of my friends, family and my kids absolutely were entertained. I look forward to seeing him again... More

My husband and I throughly enjoyed the show. It was so entertaining and Ivan performed amazing magic. I have no idea how he does it! The environment for the show was wonderful as well...small, intimate and personal. Would absolutely recommend attending! Ivan's message of "quality over quantity" in life was also very inspiring.

Last night I went with friends to see the AMAZING Ivan Amodei at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. His illusions are mindblowing! We kept saying "NO WAY" over and over again. He is adorable and very funny. Such a fun way to spend an evening. Very very well done show! I highly recommend for any age.
