SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — KRON4’s “New Year’s Live” will feature live entertainment including a special performance by Illusionist Kevin Blake. Described as “the best magician you’ve probably never heard of,” Blake is known for his cutting edge magic that “absolutely confounds” and “totally engrosses.”

With a background in theater and spoken word, Blake’s fascination with illusion and deception create performances that blend genres, resulting in a one of a kind, interactive experience. His latest production, “The Illusionist” is playing monthly at the Palace Theater in San Francisco.
