We are thrilled to welcome two Nebraskans back to campus for a one-of-a-kind experience. “The Mentalists” David Fox and Clint! Runge are joining us for IGNITE! Our namesake, TV legend, Johnny Carson, put himself through college performing magic tricks. Whether it’s their great storytelling, the slight of hand or the misdirect of an eye, magicians are a part of what makes the Johnny Carson Center for Emerging Media Arts spectacular!

David Fox, also known as The Midwest Mentalist, has been amazing audiences with his jaw-dropping mentalism for years. His ability to connect with an audience in a way that is fun, entertaining, and inclusive will thrill the viewer and leave them wanting more! David graduated college with degrees in theater performance and chemistry. He also spent four years in NYC attending the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts and working as a professional actor, dancer, and voiceover artist.

Clint! Runge is co-founder and managing director of Archrival, a fun-loving creative agency that goes against the grain to makes brands relevant with youth culture. Clint! and team light the fires for clients such as Red Bull, Adidas, Hollister, YETI and a starting squad of athletes and entertainers. He’s won as many awards as he’s had all-nighters, collecting an obnoxious amount of fake gold statues from the industry’s top shows. Most frightening of all, Runge taught creative strategy at the University of Nebraska for 15 years.
