Reggie Rice discovered the World of Magic by what he calls pure "sleight of chance." Since he could walk and talk, this energetic young man has loved making people laugh and smile. He discovered a love for acting, singing, and dancing at an early age, which encouraged Reggie to perform in every school play, talent show, and chorus concert. Low and behold, it was just preparing him for his future in magic. While most magicians start at an early age, Reggie did not have an opportunity to discover the world of magic and illusions until he received his first magic kit at the age of nineteen. Compared to the professional magicians he has trained under, Reggie is no amateur when it comes to entertaining.
Reggie got his start in magic by hosting parties at a Family Entertainment Center called Hyperspace Fun Center. This was the opportunity he needed to see the profound effect magic had on children and adults alike. But his true passion for magic began when he witnessed the charismatic sleight of hand magic by the Master Magician, Giovanni Livera. He learned the goofy, entertaining side of magic from his now good friend, Tom Vorjahan. He referred Reggie to the International Brotherhood of Magicians Convention. This opportunity gave him the chance to meet and learn from some of the greatest magicians in the world. For the last 10 years, Reggie has been living the dream as a full-time professional magician, doing shows as far as California.
