About James Chan

James Chan lives in Fremont, CA with his younger sister and parents, Master Magician Dan Chan and Balloon Artist and Performer Kat Chan. He has been watching his father perform for as long as he can remember and has more experience than most magicians three times his age. James is a student at Mattos Elementary School. When he’s not harassing his sister or rehearsing new material, he can be found playing basketball and video games. James loves nothing more than seeing the look of surprise on a skeptical audience member when he executes a perfect illusion. His favorite act is pickpocketing and his favorite food is dumplings.

What People Are Saying About James Chan

"The highlight of the show was definitely Dan's boy, James. It is that cute father-son act I tell you. He did great in the actual show, especially at the end but I don't want to ruin the surprise. I still don't get it and I probably never will. Yay for little James!" Amy H. 9/15/2015 Yelp Review for Bay Area's Most Popular Dinner Show

"I love watching James on stage." Jeff Raz, Cirque du Soleil Casting Partner
