Testimonials


Believe the magic

Press

"Cody personifies what he encourages his audience to do: embrace and celebrate what makes you, you."

"What I find most impressive about what Cody does, is that his desire to perform his magic in front of an audience is, in ways, in direct conflict with his disorder. His determination to succeed and love for what he does is inspiring."

–Behind the Curtain Cincinnati

"Clark doesn’t ask for pity or sympathy, but he entertainingly fosters understanding."

–Arts-Louisville

"The performer’s honesty and charm buys a lot of credibility"

"Clark offers a feel-good autobiography of a talented and fearless young performer, whose unusual way of experiencing the world has only served to heighten the practice of his craft."

–CityBeat Cincinnati

“If you get the chance, do catch his act, it is funny, amazing and moving; a tall order in the magic world.”

“While I stage managed for Erskine, and have seen Copperfield, Blackstone and Lance Burton, I have to say that I have never enjoyed a magic entertainment on the main stage so much.”

–The Family Paper, Louisville, Kentucky

“I’m enchanted with Cody Clark. The show is truly about empowerment and succeeding despite your obstacles.”

“Thumbs up for Cody Clark: A Different Way of Thinking. Great to have a truly family-friendly show at Indy Fringe. G-Rated”

–IndyFringe Talks

“Even if you take autism off the table, this is a very solid magic show by a young talent that is already making a name for himself. His takes on various standard tricks are creative and they embellish his story rather than detract from it.”

–Plays with John and Wendy (Indianapolis Based Theatre Blog)

“Trick by trick, Clark does more than pull coins and scarves from thin air. He pulls out his vulnerability for all to see.”

“From the moment he takes the stage—just as the name of his show suggests—you can tell he’s different.”

–The Courier Journal, Louisville, Kentucky

“The magical moments in his show reveal how his brain works differently. Other people just see boxes of macaroni and cheese, he sees how his grandma never runs out of his favorite food.”

“Because he is focused on his character while considering material, he can take a classic or new piece and make it unique to him.”

Genii Magazine, Magic’s leading trade publication, October 2016

“Go for magic, leave with inspiration.”

–Orlando Sentinel review 2017

“Some people dismiss magic tricks as nothing but dime store gimmicky…but for Cody Clark, illusions are an honest way to express himself without being mocked for it.”

–Orlando Weekly review 2019

"I want you to know that I thought yesterday’s presentation was terrific, and frankly, the three presentations far exceeded my expectations. While the other folks we used over the last three weeks were really good, you were outstanding. You called on the students, used names, and made your sessions interactive. You shared very valuable information in an entertaining and engaging format, and frankly, you were more focused on the students."

–Carrie Stith-Webster, Ohio Valley Educational Cooperative, Adult Transition Planning Client

"You were amazing! You did such a good job of keeping the kids engaged even though it was a virtual platform. You did an amazing job of making Marlee the main focus and making her feel so special.
