Joe The Magician

How it all started

   10 year old Joe became interested in magic while watching Wonderama with Bob McAllister and The Magician with Bill Bixby.

   Each week these shows taught viewers some simple tricks that anyone could perform.  Joe was hooked.   A great hobby to show friends and family.  Then an unknown magician, Doug Henning, opened a Broadway show and now Joe had his profession.  From that point on all school work revolved around the fact that this is what he would do for a living.  Of course teachers, guidance counselors and family all thought it was a nice hobby but he needed to decide on what he would do for a living.  All through elementary school, high school and college Joe knew that this is what he would do one day.

A college degree in hand, Joe went into magic as a full time profession.  Many performers had other jobs to fall back on, but not Joe.  All his efforts were put into making his career as a full time entertainer a reality.  In addition to the birthday parties, Joe created various educational programs that use magic to teach a lesson.

Topics on substance abuse, reading, cultural diversity and the environment allowed Joe to expand into the school market throughout NJ, NY and PA.

Almost everyday Joe is in a school giving back.  He created a program, "Secrets of Magic", where he teaches children the basics of magic hoping to instill the love of the art that he has to others.
