Comedian, magician, keynote speaker, and author Tim Gabrielson has two main
goals when he steps on stage: 1) Keep It Funny, 2) Inspire his audiences to
A native of Minnesota, Tim began performing at a local theme park at age 16.
His comedic wit and natural timing combined with magical prowess quickly
made him a park favorite. He soon became in-demand nationally for his
riveting show combining clean humor and highly-skilled magic. It didn't take
long to gain the attention of agents and producers alike-which landed him
fill-in spots for Vegas headliners like Ron Lucas and Mac King-before
acquiring his own room on the Las Vegas Strip.
When Tim Realized, however, that his humor was touching lives by allowing
people to see beyond their immediate hardships, he began infusing his
highly-entertaining show with a simple and profound take-away message. His
signature message about the power of positive choice, "Have a Good Day,"
blends breathtaking comedy and magic with principles for creating a more
meaningful and enthusiastic life-starting now. Today, Tim is a keynote
speaker who blends comedy, magic, and inspirational principles as he
presents to corporations, associations, non-profits, educational groups, and
churches-equipping them to live with more joy and intentionality.
Tim's presentations have exceeded 540 in a single year and has averaged 150
events per year for over 10 years. This has provided limitless exposure to
every imaginable audience, which gives him the additional ability to handle
any crowd. Tim's "Keep it Funny" philosophy, as highlighted in his signature
book, Lemons to Laughter, is apparent throughout his laugh-a-minute on-stage
presence. He prides himself in providing a clean presentation in which he
takes it to the line, but never crosses. His increasing popularity has taken
him from a best-kept secret among the college venue, to performing before
large crowds, to presenting for prominent corporate groups, associations,
schools, and churches. His wide appeal makes his presentation enjoyable and
valuable tor all types of audiences.
Tim's business is inspiring people through comedy and magic, but for this
consummate professional, it's much more than the tricks. "People are always
talking about the technicality of magic. You have to be good, but the magic
by itself can be meaningless. Do you entertain the crowd? Can you grab an
audience in the first few minutes and hold their attention while teaching
them a valuable take-away lesson? Do you inspire people to think
differently? You can be a fabulous magician, but if you can't entertain the
crowd, and give them something of value to take away, people aren't going to
come back. I don't want to be just a good magician, or a great entertainer.
I want to ignite people to live happier lives."
