Eugene Verbeck (November 3, 1844-1905), was the stage name of the French magician Eugene-Laurant Verbeke. He became a familiar figure on the stages of Paris, appearing at venues such as the Folies- Bergère and Eldorado.

In 1883 he toured Finland, and prior to his arrival in Britain, around 1885, had been playing a season at the Théâtre des Nouveautés in Paris.

In England, Verbeck performed Second Sight with Mademoiselle Marguerit, who also performed other mentalism type effects.

He was later employed by P. T. Barnum and made several tours in the United States. He retired in New York.
