Ryan, better known as Illusionist Ryan Dutcher or The Balloonatic, is Q92’s resident illusionist, Broadway buff, and morning host on Annie in the Morning with Ryan. Born and raised here in the Hudson Valley, Ryan got his start in professional entertainment when he performed his first paid magic show at the age of 15. Ryan has been entertaining for 18 years now, and is known for his quick wit, mind-blowing magic, and instant connection he makes with his audiences - no matter what age! You may know him best from his high-tech illusion show on the stage over at Headless Horseman Hayrides and Haunted Houses, along with being the speaker of their incredible “Don’t Be a Monster” anti-bullying assembly. Ryan has also worked closely with and performed for the Hudson Valley Renegades for many years. While his career is rooted here in the Hudson Valley, Ryan has also traveled across the country performing his illusion shows, as well as with the Coast 2 Coast Dance Across America tour - where he inspires students to “never give up” on their dreams. Besides his professional career in magic, Ryan likes to spend his spare time paying it forward with local charities and performing live theatre at The CENTER for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck.
