Happy Dan the Magic Man is back on Facebook, courtesy of the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre, for a magic show on Wednesday, Aug. 19.

He's known for his one-of-a-kind magic shows that are perfect for young children on the third Wednesday of each month at 11 a.m. You can stream the performances on the Renaissance Centre's Facebook page. They're also available on the venue's website.

Here's a description, courtesy of Wake Forest:

Everyone laughs louder when Happy Dan the Magic Man is in the house. Happy Dan has traveled the world entertaining families for more than 30 years. His hilarious family shows are regular features at Southeastern festivals, comedy clubs, banquets, trade shows, schools, and family living rooms. He is more than an entertainer. He's that slightly silly, can't-wait-to-see-him, loving uncle that every child loves.  

Happy Dan's zany character recalls the fun of live television hosts from years gone by. He blends the gentleness and homespun comfort of Mister Rogers with the silly antics and storytelling of Captain Kangaroo. His talents stretch to thoroughly holding the attention of children as young as three years to golden age adults. Wherever laughter and a caring heart is needed, Happy Dan delivers!

It's free to watch.
