Where Comedy & Magic Collide!

Award-winning comedian & magician, Chipper Lowell, has been described as an "artistic cyclone of talent and comedy" by the press. He has also been described as "lazy when it comes to cleaning the house," by his wife. The red head's true "skills" can usually be found onstage instead, doling out witty remarks, presenting bizarre feats of original magic, adlibbing with audience members who can't stop laughing, attempting pointless juggling stunts, pulling a seemingly endless barrage of unusual thing-a-ma-bobs and gadgets out of his prop trunks, and in short, creating a wonderful evening of high-energy laughs and amazement for all those in attendance. (How's THAT for a run-on sentence? You're welcome!)
For over 20 years, Chipper has been bringing his odd brand of infectiously amusing mayhem to audiences around the world at performing arts centers, theaters, cruise ships, and casino showrooms. His tours have taking him throughout the United States, Canada, England, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, and Mexico.
As a boy, Chipper was literally born and raised on traveling circuses and large scale arena shows with his show business parents. His father was a professional clown with Ringling Bros and his mother performed as an aerialist working high above the crowds. By age 17, Chipper was creating his own shows, parodying many of the variety arts he grew up with, while also creating some eye-popping magic routines of his own along the way.
Within a few years, people began to take notice -- Thankfully, in a good way. Chipper quickly racked up an impressive list of theater and casino bookings and never looked back. He has received some cool honors and awards along the way, like "Comedy Magician of the Year!" (twice), "Specialty Act of the Year!", two nominations for "Stage Magician of the Year", and was listed among the "Top Funniest Magicians Performing Today" by MAGIC Magazine. Whoop-de-do. : )
In addition to touring, Chipper has also produced several comedy CDs and recordings for Rhino Records, including "Comic Relief IV, V & VI," "National Lampoon's Radio Hour Anthology," and "The American Comedy Box". His writing credits include "Comic Strip Live", the feature film "SIX", and "The Magic of David Copperfield" television special.
His greatest joy, however, is spending time at home with his son, stealing the covers nightly from his wife, and blaming the family dog for his midnight raids on the fridge.
