TAD Management presents Eric Buss – Inventive Comedy Magic

Thursday, Feb. 6, Ballroom, 7 p.m.

Eric Buss was born in Tucson, Arizona. When he was born, the doctors all laughed at him. That laughter gave Eric a rush, and at the age of seven seconds, he knew he wanted to make people laugh when he grew up. At the ripe age of 8, he learned how to tinker in his dad’s workshop. Then, at the age of 16, he started learning magic. When he successfully merged his passion for building with his magical skills, he knew right then and there (according to this bio) that he wanted to be a professional comedy magician who would build his own original props, and he has never looked back. Tickets – $20 per person, currently available at the HOA Office. Full cash bar available, pre-packaged snacks only.
