About Reza

Reza John Borchardt saw his first magic show at the wee age of six in his hometown of Brookings, South Dakota. A year later, he asked for his own magic kit and began shocking and awing classmates. By age 15, the established touring magician came to Branson, MO, where he performed 18 shows for six weeks.

His Branson famous act created a fan base, and a legend was born! Voted Branson's "Magician of the Year" in 2016 and 2021, Reza has been described as "one of the fastest rising young stars in the country."

Today, known simply as 'Reza,' the nation's top touring illusionist incorporates music, movies, and pop culture into his acts. In 2013 Reza appeared on networks such as MTV alongside the American rock band, Never Shout Never. In addition, he has recently acted on popular reality shows like Japan's "Wonders of the World," A&E's "Duck Dynasty," and CW's "Penn and Teller: Fool Us."
