Travis Newcombe: Alternative Magic
Performing Art – Omaha
Hi, My name is Travis Newcombe. Most bio pages are written in the third person, but that would go against the point of my show, so I am just going to tell you my story. I am the youngest of five kids and was born with a life threatening heart defect. My grandpa showed my siblings and I card tricks when I was very young. It was the combination of the limits put on me by my heart condition and being the youngest in my family that caused magic to take hold. I performed my very first magic show when I was in first grade. That is when I realized just how much I loved being in front of an audience. I spent my school years perfecting my magic and learning how to \"own\" a stage. I competed in Destination Imagination (click the link, it\'s an amazing organization) throughout middle and high school. I focused mostly on improve, that is a skill that helps make every show I do a very entertaining and unique experience for each audience. Now I am a full time performer with my one man show \"Magic Like You Have Never Seen\" performing all over the country at various events. My goal is to spread the message of being yourself and overcoming obsticles.
