TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Magic shows look a little different now because of the pandemic.
Magician, Bentley Burns, said he usually performs at schools and parties, but since the pandemic began, he’s been entertaining crowds virtually.
Burns said he shows people how to do his tricks so they can stay engaged on Zoom and Facebook live. He makes sure they have their own coins, playing cards and rubber bands.
Burns said being a magician during this time has been difficult, but thanks to his shows for colleges and libraries, he’s able to do what he loves and make a profit.
"My whole show is now a new show because usually you would have to have spectators involved and they have to pick cards or come on stage, but you can’t do that through a screen,” he said.
Burns said even though he's been able to adapt, he looks forward to performing in front of crowds again.
