You will not want to miss this! He will join (CHK CHK CHK) !!! and Big Gorgeous at Stage on Herr!
John’s interest in magic began with a magic set and a $5 paycheck for a birthday party. Several years later, while attending a local show with an ensemble of national acts “The World of Illusion“, he was hooked. For the next three years, John studied the fundamentals of this mysterious art with the producer and star of that show.
With his new found skills in magic and his natural ability to make people laugh, performing local shows helped put John through college and made him very popular at various political functions as he began a more conventional career with the Pennsylvania State Senate. But his love for people and the stage would beckon. In the summer of 1990, John would leave his 9 to 5 job and move to Richmond, VA to star in a variety stage show – a brand new concept for Paramount’s King’s Dominion.
John’s show opened to rave reviews and well over 300 Performances later the act was ready when Nabisco launched a nationwide talent search. John was selected from thousands of magicians nationwide to perform live on stage with Harry Blackstone, Jr. in Atlantic City!
Success in Atlantic City led to high-end corporate gigs in New York City, an appearance on national television – USA Live, USA Networks and bookings on cruise ships all over the world. Including appearances with Alabama, The Beach Boys, Clint Holmes and the legendary Jerry Lee Lewis along the way!
His innate sense of humor, quick wit and award winning partner, Susan (recently named “Assistant of the Year” by the Magician’s Alliance of Eastern States) have made John’s act popular with audiences around the globe!
