Clarence H. Pearsall III, also known as C. Magic, was born in Philadelphia, PA, and raised in Chester, PA. His fascination for magic began as a young child after receiving Marshall Brodien's "TV Magic Cards."
While serving in the U. S. Navy, Clarence was once again bitten by the "magic bug" after seeing his shipmate perform a card trick that astonished him. He was able to persuade his shipmate to teach him the card routine. One can even say that was C. Magic's first experience with sleight of hand.
During his career as a Professional Firefighter / EMT, Clarence would not only utilize that one card trick, but he advanced into doing gags on his fellow firefighters. While conducting CPR and First Aid courses he would often use card tricks and gags as "ice breakers" to relax and set the pace for his special style of training.
Upon retiring, Clarence moved to Chicago in 2014, a few months later he met his mentor, Magic Sam while visiting a well know magic shop. A veteran of magic, Magic Sam gladly embarked on helping, the now C. Magic, to diligently hone his new craft of performing magic, illusions, and mentalism. He has won several awards in 2016, the I.B.M. Ring 43 "...EST" award, the S.A.M. Chicago Magic Competition "People's Choice" award, and the I.A.B.M.A. "Online Video of the Year" award, and in 2018, he was presented with the first Fredia Gibbs PGWAC/GOAT "Entertainer of the Year Award".
C. Magic has traveled to Europe and performed his special style of magic, in front of Buckingham Palace in London, on top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and inside the walls of the Colosseum in Rome. He has showcased his magical talents at the Comedy Zone Charlotte, created, produced, and marketed "The Double Trouble Magic Show," with
"Houdini" Johnson. Their act was previewed on WBTV Charlotte: "On Your Side," Bounce TV and Fox 46's "Good Day Charlotte."

He has also performed his magical shenanigans at The Laughing Skull in Atlanta, Atlanta Magic Night, Johnson & Johnson / Jannsen, Churches Chicken, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta-Scottish Rite Hospital, and various other companies and community organizations.
