For over forty years, Tony Eng was a full-time professional magic entertainer and was one of Canada’s most sought-after performers. He presented shows coast-to-coast having toured across Canada and the United States. A twenty-year veteran of restaurant magic; a memorable and highly successful magical bartender; and a even magic shop owner for nineteen years, Tony did it all … and he did his way.
He will be remembered as one the most versatile, up-beat, energetic magicians of his generation. His outstanding reputation, matched with his hospitable nature generated the title: “The Ambassador of Magic” … and nothing could have been further from the truth. He simply loved magic and he loved sharing it.
And, we like to believe, that magic will always love Tony.
