This year we’re excited to bring you magician, Cody Clark! Cody is a 28-year-old professional magician/autistic self-advocate from Louisville, KY. He places his magic within real life’s magic moments, giving his shows a more personal touch that everyone can relate to. He also shares the honest ins and outs of being autistic both in his shows and in his “magi-talks” given to educators, students, and corporations. His biggest honors are sharing the Louisville Palace stage with magic legend Lance Burton and receiving the 2017 Society of American Magicians Rising Star of Magic award. He can be found at codyclarkmagic.com or on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok as @codyclarkmagic.
Cody combines his lived experiences as a magician, arts patron, and autistic adult to create a half-hour especially dedicated to the special needs community. In Cody’s Sensory Friendly Spectacular, the magic looks gentle, there are no jarring images, no sudden sounds, but the magic is as impressive as ever! Even more impressive are the stories Cody weaves into his routines about what being autistic is like for him. You will be amazed and inspired by this show crafted just for the special needs community.
