Past Disney Channel guest star Adam Trent Magic Show at the Lincoln Center

l2gwg4xs1GhkP3yr6SUJteFX1DwF7hnhddb5r4XeneU,LrarvWnse5hgODNREIeMN8c9dsUV76ngDWhO2VTOnQUIf you like magic, this is the show for you. If you like dancing, this is the show for you. If you like comedy, well, this is the show for you.

Be prepared because Adam Trent is coming to town and he brings much more to the stage than smoke and bangs — he incorporates dancing and stand-up comedy.


On Saturday, Feb. 16, Trent will perform live at the Lincoln Center from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

“Part of why we are so excited to have Adam here at the Lincoln Center is because his shows are so unique,” said Susan Hurlihy, public relations representative for the Lincoln Center. “The audience is going to be thrilled!”

Originally from Boulder, Trent has travelled to 19 different countries to perform and was nominated “Small Venue Entertainer of the Year” for 2012 by Campus Activities Magazine.

Trent does approximately 250 shows a year, about 55 of which are college shows; however, he is particularly excited for his show here in Fort Collins.

He calls this show his “homecoming.” It has been five years since Trent performed in his home state; the Lincoln Center strikes a special chord in his heart as it is where he had his first headline act.

Trent claims to have “a lot of big surprises planned” for his Fort Collins audience.

“What’s really great about Adam is his warmth. He’s very warming and engaging whether you speak to him personally or see him from an audience of 11,000,” said Hurlihy.

Trent discovered his passion at a young age after attending a David Copperfield performance when he was eight years old.

By 10 years old Trent was performing at birthday parties and by 13 years-old he was doing corporate shows.


“I try to add inspiration to my performance … Like what you do, and do what you like,” Trent said.

Trent’s talent has brought him far, but he truly just enjoys making his audience laugh and feel inspired by his magic.

“The best part of being a performer is getting to meet people from all walks of life and seeing the way they react to my magic,” Trent said.

Trent may also be recognized from his performance in the Disney Channel show, “Shake It Up,” which is about two teenagers who perform as background dancers on a local television show.

“If you like magic, you’ll enjoy the show; if you don’t like magic, you’ll enjoy the show,” said Trent. “You can’t afford not to come!”
