Kurt Kritzler began learning magic effects when he was 7 years old and has been practicing magic for over 30 years professionally. He carries a deep passion for what he does because it is something that interests a wide audience from all walks of life. He also takes pride in being a one-man-show and describes his approach to magic as purist, meaning that he doesn't need large props on stages with assistants for his shows. He also takes pride in his dedication to continually educating himself, which is why he owns and has read over 1,500 books on magic, philosophy, and psychology. At the end of the day, he believes that doing magic shows allows him to connect with people – one of the reasons he continues performing magic to this day.

Kurt always remains humble believing he can always improve and learn more. This is why he believes that "you're only as good as your last show", something that has driven his success over the many years performing.
Kurt believes in putting himself out there, even in uncomfortable circumstances. He credits this personal trait in giving him the opportunity to perform for so many people he would've never expected. Lastly, he loves the product he sells (astonishment, amazement, surprise, happiness, laughs) gives him and his audience instant gratification.
