Bizarre Magick (or the less mysterious spelling, Bizarre Magic) is a term that includes Wizard-style magic, Simulated Black Magic or Ritual Magic, Mediums or Spiritualists, Grotesque Magic, and Freak Show Magic. The purpose is to make audiences wonder if what they are seeing is "the real thing." A great deal of emphasis is placed on building up "atmosphere" and on story-telling.

Bizarre Magick entertainers take stories of the odd, eccentric, or fantastic nature and tell it using magic as the visual kicker (providing "proof" that the story did in fact happen).

Some performers include Tony Shiels, Charles W. Cameron, Tony Andruzzi and Eugene Poinc.
