“I actually saw David Copperfield perform when I was about 8 or 9 years old, and I just remember my whole family having fun and laughing,” Trent told Us. “I got home and I was like, ‘Whatever that guy was doing, that’s what I wanna do.’”

His show, which is stopping in over 60 U.S. cities, is taking magic to the next level. “We’re doing live hologram projection in the show. It’s a very technological magic show,” he shared. “If you’ve seen magic before, there’s gonna be new magic parts you’ve never seen before in this one.”

Trent teaches Us Weekly host Christina Garibaldi a few tricks in the video above, but we had to know – can anyone be a magician? “Being a magician is kind of like being a musician in the sense that as a kid when you first start, you learn all the chords,” he said. “You learn the basic chords of it. Once you know those things, you can combine them in different ways to make these different songs.”
