Every week I’m interviewing fascinating people in our community, nation and around the world.

The idea came from a Facebook commenter who saw a video of me and my family floating down the river in Island Park. The person said I should turn the tables and interview my dad (Nate Eaton) – so I did and the rest is history!

Farrell Dillon is a comedy magician who moved from Idaho to Las Vegas last year to begin a residency at Bally’s. He performed on six seasons of “Masters of Illusion.” He and his wife have two kids and an adorable dog.

I recently interviewed Dillon after one of his shows (which was very funny). Here’s what I asked him:

  • How did you get into magic?
  • What is the biggest thing you’ve learned doing illusions?
  • What happens when you’re doing a trick and something goes wrong?
  • How did you get your show here in Las Vegas?
  • What is your ultimate dream?
  • For people who have never been to your show, what should they expect?
  • You are from Idaho. What’s the biggest difference between Idaho and Las Vegas?


  • What is your favorite illusion to do?
  • What advice do you have for me?
  • Can you do a trick for me?
