About Brian

Birmingham magician Brian Reaves

Four-Time Birmingham Magician of the Year

IBM Ring 35





One lazy afternoon in a local restaurant, Brian watched with amazement as a co-worker did a few card tricks. It was his first introduction to close-up magic and became an obsession. A late-night trip to a bookstore put his first magic book in his hands, and the learning began. That co-worker went on to become a rich and famous doctor, while Brian went on to a life of magic and illusions. Both men are extremely happy with their choices.


Twenty-plus years later, the love for magic is still going strong. Along the way, Brian has won awards and accolades from fellow magicians and spectators alike while leaving people with the same sense of wonder he felt when he saw that first card trick.


In 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2018 Brian was awarded "Magician of the Year" from the International Brotherhood of Magicians Ring 35 in Birmingham, becoming the first four-time winner in the Ring's history. Brian is now standing President of the IBM Ring 35 Magic City Magic Club as of November 2015.


In March 2016, Brian became the Close-Up Champion at the Winter Carnival of Magic in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
