Illusionist Craig Karges to perform at Augustana

October  25, 2012

Karges promises to make tables float, read minds, bend metal and challenge the imagination of all of those in the audience. He tours nationwide and was named Entertainer of the Year six times by the National Association for Campus Activities (NACA).

With more 4,000 appearances to his credit, Karges has been featured on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Larry King Live,” E! Entertainment Television and CNBC.
