Described by the New York Times as “an erudite magician and rabble-rouser”, Eric does his utmost to live up to both monikers. Before joining forces with Rachel Jessee to develop The Immaterialists, Eric had built an impressive performance résumé that includes an Off-Broadway run of his mostly one-man show Esoterica which also played in London, Edinburgh, and Brighton, England and which was characterized by the Times of London as “a masterclass in card magic and mentalism”. Eric's credits as an actor include numerous commercials and Off-Broadway, Off-Off Broadway, and Regional theatre productions, including performances at the Classical Theater of Harlem, the Bay Street Theater, the Currican, and the New Jersey Repertory Company. He also performs regularly at colleges, casinos, and performing arts centers around the country. His work has earned the attention and accolades of publications such as the Times of London, the New York Times, Variety, the Daily News, and Zink magazine.
Rachel is a native of Nevada whose professional credentials run the gamut from classical dance and fire performance to working as a magician, actor, and choreographer in venues across the country and around the world, including in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Italy, and Ghana. She has appeared on television, in film and theatre, at casinos, and at private events and corporate functions for a wide range of clients. Her career in magic began in 2005 and she spent a year headlining her own show in Las Vegas, during which time she developed an interest in the art of mentalism.
