Years of Laughter and Astonishment
Leon has delighted audiences in the United States and United Kingdom for over three decades. Combining the classics of magic with humorous storytelling, he creates a unique experience which engages the mind while tickling the funny bone. His performances are both family friendly and business safe. Leon is known for the personal touches he brings to every event – whether it is a private party with a dozen guests or a club performance for hundreds.
Leon began publicly performing magic at the age of eleven when he teamed with his father, a famous professional Santa Claus. By the age of eighteen he had provided entertainment for over three hundred holiday parties including for virtually every major civic organization. His summers were equally busy entertaining at malls, restaurants, and birthday parties. He also worked at the local magic and novelty store, helping new people enter the magic hobby and seasoned magicians expand their acts.
Leon used his talent in magic to pay for his undergraduate and graduate education. And while magic is now a secondary occupation, it is no less a professional one. His regular stage appearances have only added to his love a magic; a love he shares with each and every audience member today.
Leon is a proud member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians and has been inducted into its elite Order of Merlin. He currently is secretary for the local IBM chapter, a position where he chronicles the acts of his fellow magi.
Leon is also a magic innovator. Several of his inventions have been published in magician periodicals.
