Magician Cody Clark of Louisville, Ky Returns to Cincy Fringe with His New Show, THE ORIGINS OF MY MAGIC
May 2, 2019 (LOUISVILLE, KY) – Magician/autistic self-advocate Cody Clark is returning to the Cincinnati Fringe Festival to perform his second touring magic show The Origins of My Magic. He will be at the First Lutheran Church Lounge in Over-the-Rhine on 1208 Race St. for eight shows June 1st-15th.
In his newest show, Cody answers the question of where his magic comes from. Rather than coming from sleight of hand moves and arcane secrets, he feels it comes from the people, places, things, and ideas that have fundamentally shaped his life. These include classic country music, Dolly Parton, Mr. Rogers, magic legend/hometown hero Lance Burton, and his family, friends, teachers, and mentors.
Cody is a professional magician and autistic self-advocate from Louisville, KY. His first fringe festival engagement was the 2015 Cincy Fringe, when he performed his flagship show Cody Clark: A Different Way of Thinking, in which he uses his routines to share what it’s like to live with autism. He’s since performed that show at 15 other fringe festivals, small theaters, and schools. He’s had so much fun on the fringe circuit that he created this new show to return to his favorite fringe festivals, which also includes the 2019 Orlando Fringe concluding right before Cincy Fringe. He also has a children’s show themed to railroading called Conductor Cody and in March 2018, his childhood dream of performing with Lance Burton came true at the Louisville Palace, where he was in the cast of Lance Burton & Friends.
Cody’s shows will take place on Sat. June 1st at 6:30 PM, Sun. June 2nd at 4:45 PM, Tue. June 4th at 8:30 PM, Thur. June 6th at 7 PM, Sat. June 8th at 7:45 PM, Sun. June 9th at 4 PM, Tue. June 11th at 7 PM, and Thur. June 13th at 8:30 PM. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at www.cincyfringe.com , at The Know Theatre, or at the venue doors. Multi-show passes for the entire festival are also available. For more information about Cody, you may go to www.codyclarkmagic.com.
