A D.W. Poppy grad, who took up magic - in part - to impress a girl, is performing in his hometown of Langley this week.
Wes Barker, a stunt magician known for throwing a heavy dose of giggles into every show, will be at Cascades Casino at 8 p.m. on Friday (Nov. 16) night.
"My career as an entertainer is really taking off," Barker said. "I basically had my pick of anywhere to do my first casino show. But I thought I would make this kind of my homecoming show, so I chose Langley."
Barker is constantly working on new and exciting stunts and illusions, his theory is that if people are amazed or laughing, then they're forgetting about their problems for awhile.
