Harris III is a classically trained, award-winning, Christian illusionist, and an expert in the art of deception. He has performed before 1 million people in more than fifteen nations on five continents.
His name is Harris III (“Harris the Third”), and since receiving a magic set from his grandmother at the age of 9, he has been fascinated with magic, illusion and how easily the senses are deceived. At age 11 he gave his first public performance. Today, at the age of 28, he is a classically trained, award-winning, master illusionist, and an expert in the art of deception. He has performed before 1 million people in more than fifteen nations on five continents. Harris’ performances not only amaze his audiences, but also awaken them to the lure of deception, the power of the senses, and the secret of living life based on deeper realities. More than an entertainer, more than a speaker, Harris is an artist.
For Harris, magic consists of so much more than simple tricks. To him, it’s about creating works of aesthetic value that create a sense of wonder. Put simply, Harris is elevating the art of illusion to its original place in the performing arts. It is not just about what audiences see, but about what they experience. And better yet, what they feel. This is magic at its best, and truly, a creative work of art.
While Harris has earned respect as an artist to many, ultimately, he’s an equally respected communicator. Whether telling a story, speaking from his heart, or performing magic, his ultimate goal is to inspire and challenge people, initiating change and transformation.
Harris says, “It’s not always about revealing truth, but helping people challenge their assumptions, and ask deep questions about what life is really all about. The journey is as important as the discovery. I love when people discover truth that radically changes their lives, but as long as people leave our shows talking about not just what they saw, but what they heard and feel challenged to process, I am perfectly fulfilled.”
