Now’s the time to contact me for shows and events during March Break 2018. The week is already half booked!
I have many different sized stage shows available as well as my strolling performances I can provide at your event.
Availability is limited, call now!
This past year was great fun. I performed more shows then ever before and have traveled farther then years past (All over North America!) Perhaps the most interesting part of 2017 was the many different custom shows I’ve been asked to design and perform. Usually I only perform as either Captain Corbin the magical pirate, or as The Amazing Corbin – my vintage styled magician persona. However this past year has seen me perform as The magician, the pirate, a space man, a cowboy a mystic gypsy and a freaky voodoo bone man! It was certainly a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to see what next year holds. Here is a video showing it all.

I be pleased as punch to announce me new website is up and running! go and visit www.CaptainCorbin.com now and let me know what you think!
I’m happy to announce I’ll be returning to Storybook Gardens in London Ontario again this year. I’ll be performing two shows every Wednesday in July and August as well as many other surprise performances.
As always, each show is family friendly and full of fun magic and audience participation. Many children will come onstage to assist and when the show ends I’ll be sure to share some of my treasure. It’s great fun and I hope to see you there.
I had a fun, busy and crazy March Break 2016! I traveled all over Ontario performing my pirate themed magic shows for all kinds of audiences at Libraries, Private parties, restaurants and waterparks!
By the numbers I performed over 20 shows during the week! 10 libraries, 2 shows at the Waterpark, 6 restaurant appearances and two private shows. I drove over 2265 Km (the distance from my home to Walt Disney world in Florida) Performed for well over 1500 people, threw away over 8 gross of gold colored pirate coins and spent more on gas then I’m willing to tally up, but it was a blast to be sure!
I performed at the Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls ONairo on the first and last Saturday of the March Break. the shows were both well attended with over 15o people at each show (by my poor count) On the last Saturday I even stuck around and read one of my favorite pirate books to the children for story time. ( How I became a Pirate by Melinda Long) Well, I started to read that story anyway. I know the story by memory, so I picked up the book and started reciting it. After a few minites I realized the pictures were not matching up. Upon closer inspection I realized I had grabbed the second volume (Pirates don’t change diapers by Melinda Long) After a short bit of confusion I read that book WITH the children, as I don’t know that one by memory yet! It was quite funny.
I had fun at all the libraries! Some I performed at for the first time. Here is a short list;
Idea Exchange in Cambridge, Dutton On Library, Baden ON, library, Harriston ON library, Queens Square in Cambridge, St. Clements Library, Aboyne Library, Wellesley Library, New Dundee library
I’m looking forward to the next time I return to all the libraries! Maybe this summer.
As always, if you would like me to sail to your area just ask you local library when I’ll be appearing next!
Shiver me timbers it’s been a busy few weeks. I’ve just returned from Minett Ontario and had a blast! ( Like a Cannon! )
Minett is a very tiny town in the Muskoka’s but it has two amazing Resorts. Clevelands House and the Rosseau / J.W. Marriott. It’s been years since I’ve performed at Cleveland’s house. Lots of great memories there. I sailed into the docks on the steamship Whenonah 2 from Gravenhurst Wharf and we would pick up all the kids from Cleveland’s Kids club for a pirate cruise around the lake. Then afterwards I’d join them at the Resort for a large magic show. It was lots of fun.
This past weekend I performed a very special show at the J.W. Marriott / The Rosseau resort and Spa in Minett. It was a great show out on the back lawn for the families. I even brought my animatronic talking skull Randy to entertain with pirate hi-jinks and jokes. The show went very well and almost all the children got to participate. at the end of the show they all received a bit of pirate gold! It was a buccaneering good time. I can’t wait to return.
Well that’s all for the ship’s log this week. I’ve got a few days of shore leave now, then I must prepare for next weeks exciting shows! It all starts Friday at Storybook gardens in London, then Saturday at the lake Huron children’s festival, then sunday in Glencoe ON and Monday at the Woodstock library! Busy times, busy times.
Have A Piraticial day!
