Sam Sandler is a magician, inspirational speaker and America’s only full time deaf Christian illusionist works with corporations, schools, churches and many other organizations across America to create powerful, life-changing events. With over 8,000 live shows in 45 states, Sam has perfected the blend of magic and comedy with a powerful and dynamic inspirational message.
Through his magic and personal stories of overcoming his deafness, and being a full time single dad for the past 19 years, Sam unleashes the truth of how we can experience true joy in a world that is full of brokenness.
“We will all face brokenness but we are not meant to live broken lives!”
Sam has spent the last 20 years traveling across the country inspiring audiences big and small, from top casinos, schools, churches, colleges and to companies like Merk, Lockheed Martin, the Red Cross and Pfizer. He has spoken in churches in 25 states and has been the featured speaker at many Christian conferences such as Pine brook bible conference and Sandy Cove ministries He was recently named “Close-up Magician of the Year” by the Philadelphia region’s Society of American Magicians and has won multiple first place awards for his style of magic.
But things haven’t always gone so smoothly for Sam. In 2005, while a practicing magician, Sam began to experience the initial stages of a genetic disease called “Progressive Hearing Loss.” By 2009, what had first presented as difficulty clearly hearing voices and background noises had developed into complete bilateral deafness. Sam had transitioned into a world of utter silence. It was a difficult reality to accept, but instead of letting it destroy him, Sam chose to turn his situation over to God. He knew that the world‘s illusion of hopelessness concerning his hearing loss was not the truth. Sam chose instead to listen to God, knowing that through faith in Him, The Lord would turn this stumbling block into a stepping stone.
Moving forward, Sam redoubled his efforts and retooled his act to accommodate his auditory situation and created a new show called ‘DEAFinitely Magic,’ delivering a powerful message of dynamic inspiration. In 2014, Sam toured America racking up over 360 shows in 40+ states!
“The way Sam uses his loss of hearing as a tool for motivation and encouragement is breathtaking and heartwarming. You do not see a defeated victim. Instead you see a confident and loving spokesperson that uses his life as an inspiration for others.”

“If enthusiasm, talent, and sincerity were electricity, Sam Sandler could power Las Vegas! The magic of Sam Sandler is the lighthouse of family entertainment and the Christian message.”

Sam continues to be amazed at how God is using him to inspire others, not only through his brokenness, but with the true joy he has found in the deep, intimate relationship he has formed with God though Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Sam has found his calling and is excited to see where God takes him next.
“Sam has an incredible show that wows every one of all ages, but it was his moving testimony and his powerful and impactful way of communicating the truths of God, our church was most impressed with.”
