I've been a member of the Magic Castle since 2001, and became a regular performer there in 2002.  I started out performing at the Hello, Dolly! bar, so named because it's the actual bar from the movie Hello, Dolly! A lot of people don't remember this, but bar magic wasn't a regular part of The Magic Castle back in the day.  Legendary bar magician, and long-time friend of mine, Doc Eason, was scheduled to perform in the Close-Up Gallery.  This is the smallest of the three main theaters at The Castle. Anyway, the Close-Up Gallery was being remodeled.  They had Doc perform in ..read more

Innovative Construction Solutions is an environmental and specialty civil engineering contractor.  They've been in business for 25 years!  To celebrate, they had a party at the Marconi Automotive Museum.  This was my first time visiting the Marconi, and I was blown away.  It's a great spot for an event! They had food, drinks, casino games, prizes, and yours truly.  I was hired by Vince Lynam, Business Development Manager for ICS, (pictured above) to perform close-up magic as people mingled and enjoyed this amazing collection of cars.   They were a really fun grou ..read more

Dinner With a Magician!

The Magic Castle has three main theaters which are the Close-Up Gallery, The Parlor of Prestidigitation, and the Palace of Mystery.  You can think of them as small, medium, and large theaters.  Of the three, the Close-Up Gallery is the most popular. People love close-up magic because it's performed with normal things like playing cards and coins.  When spectators see magic on stage, they often have a feeling that if they could get their hands on the props, they'd know the secrets. Also, close-up magic happens inches from their eyes, and sometimes, in their own hands!  When ..read more

I'm returning to The Magic Castle November 1st - 5th.  My performances in the close-up gallery are at 7:00PM, 7:45PM, 8:30PM, and 9:15PM. I've been a member of The Magic Castle since 2001, and have been performing there regularly since 2002.  It's one of the few places I get to perform where the audience is coming in specifically to see a magic show. Most of the time, I'm an add-on to an event.  For example, if I get hired to perform close-up magic during the cocktail hour of a wedding, people enjoy the entertainment, but it's not why they're there. Being in a proper theater, s ..read more

The Beginning of My Las Vegas Adventure I arrived in Las Vegas on Sunday.  I was late to the opening night party for MAGIC Live, the magic convention I'd be attending, because I had a guest spot at The L.A. Comedy Club at The Strat.  As you probably know, I'm both a comedian and a magician.  I had a blast performing alongside my friends Jimmy Shubert and Johnny Pizzi. Here's a pic from my stand-up performance. Zach Waldman performing stand-up comedy at The L.A.

For now, I'm just going to list a handful of magic movies.  In the future, I'll go into more detail as to why I chose the movies I did. Upfront, let me say that this list is not going to inc ..read more

One of My Regrets

Over the years, I've gotten to perform for a lot of celebrities.  For about eight years, I was the house magician at a restaurant in Beverly Hills called Crustacean.  It's still a great restaurant, but has changed quite a bit.  There used to be an aquarium in the floor that served as a walkway from the lounge to the dining room.  The Rick Whitfield Band used to perform in the lounge, and they were absolutely fantastic. It seemed like someone famous dined at Crustacean every night.  If you wanted to spot celebrities, it was a great place.  It was awesome for me be ..read more
