The podcast hopes to provide more entertainment to people on social and digital channels by bringing some of the internet’s most celebrities and influencers on the show to compete in fair games and talk about anything under the sun in between.
Evan has come a long way since his early beginnings as a magician and content creator. Since his rise to TikTok and internet fame, the influencer has left his janitorial job and dropped out of college to create online content full-time. More than finding fame and success, Evan has found a calling in what he does. What brings him the most joy is delivering entertainment to people everywhere. He hopes to continue growing his influence and becoming this generation’s most celebrated magician.
Beyond just creating content, Evan The Card Guy is a man who seeks to make an impact on others. He posts content of him giving away cash, gifts, and prizes to people he gives dare and challenges.
In the next five years, Evan hopes to reach the levels of magicians like David Blaine and solidify his place amongst the greats while also bringing people happiness and awestruck wonder through the things he does best.
