Iowa Magician Keith West Wins International Recognition
West Captured The Stage At The Texas Association Of Magicians 2015 Event
Des Moines (9/14/15) – Keith West, a magician and illusionist based out of Des Moines, won the Texas Association Of Magicians (TAOM) Senior Stage award at the 2015 TAOM convention last week in Austin, Texas. He is the first Iowan to bring home a title from this international event and one of 35 title holders historically. The Senior Stage award is granted to the best theater performance of magic, which includes illusions and effects involving more than one person or animals.
West was personally scouted to compete in the competition by TAOM president Trixie Bond while performing at Hoyt Sherman Place, in Des Moines, Iowa last May. In preparation of the event, he created a routine consisting of seven show-stopping illusions and his three beautiful showgirls over the course of two years.
West turned to friend and mentor, FISM-winning Master Magician Lance Burton, when finalizing his award-winning routine, “Lance watched a video of my performance and encouraged me, giving me pointers on how to make the act better.”
The hard work paid off. West and his team of showgirls Brandy Belle, Kitty Marie, and Madeline Peyton stole the show, beating out all the other international contestants.
When he is not winning magic competitions, West performs nationwide at events of all kinds.
His upcoming performances include corporate events, casinos, as well as performing in Bob Zany’s “One Man, 3 Chicks & a BAY BEE!” Show with Bob & Tom Show and Tonight Show Comedian Bob Zany. For the last 23 summers, West has performed a series of magic shows at libraries throughout the Midwest to promote summer reading with Miss Kitty the Library Lady. He also performs a special anti-bullying program in schools.
