Mark Clearview | Comedy Magician
An international comedian, magician, and world record holder, that’s who…
Mark Clearview performs regularly at the hottest venues in New York City and flies all around the world to share his magic. His clientele ranges from celebrities like Seth Rogen, Michael J. Fox, and Rami Malek, to high profile executives at Nestle, KPMG and Google.
Clearview is a Manhattan resident — frequently headlining the city’s clubs. He was the resident magician at the acclaimed Michelin star restaurant “The Musket Room”, The Edition Hotel’s “Paradise Club”, the popular speakeasy “Bathtub Gin” and was a crowd favorite at “Caroline’s on Broadway”. Clearview also hosts the very secret, very popular MAGIC, UNLOCKED at Keys & Heels Speakeasy. When he isn’t entertaining off-broadway in New York, you can catch him performing at The Magic Castle in Los Angeles, CA.
Clearview performs in different cities weekly; from headlining The Chicago Magic Lounge to dazzling at private events. He is also the consistent cruise ship magician on Virgin Voyages - Valiant Lady.
Clearview is known for making regular appearances on television performing magic. He performed live in Las Vegas for Season 8 of Penn & Teller: Fool Us. He was the magic consultant and hand double for Hallmark Channel’s Good Witch. He has also gained over half-a-million views on YouTube and over fifty-million views on Facebook.
Mark is also the talent behind Escaping Parkinson’s—a stunt supported by Michael J. Fox himself—raising over $15,000 in just fourteen days. For two weeks Mark lived strapped inside a straitjacket without breaks. On the fourteenth day he escaped on live television, garnering international attention, and setting a world record for “The Longest Amount of Time Wearing a Straitjacket”.
The story of Escaping Parkinson's has since been presented as a TEDx talk delivered by Mark. It is the first (and only) TED talk to be delivered in a straitjacket.
In 2022 Mark published a book about his experience in the straitjacket titled “TWO WEEKS STRAIT: How to Succeed When your Hands are Tied”. The book is available to order through Amazon and anywhere books are sold. Proceeds benefit The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
Clearview has performed in over 1,000 venues for audiences as big as 10,000 people in his 20+ years as a comedy entertainer.
