MNW 107 :: JON ARMSTRONG

Jon Armstrong has performed for some of the most prestigious audiences in over 30 countries worldwide. Growing up in Orlando, Florida, Jon became fascinated by the magic he saw in the theme parks around him and dreamed of having his own show. This dream came true when Disney asked him to bring his act to Epcot and he became the resident magician at Walt Disney World. He was only 20. Jon was also recurring headliner at Caesar's Magical Empire. It was between these runs in Vegas that Jon started touring the world as a performer and lecturer, teaching others how to add humor and entertainment to their magic. He now lives in Los Angeles and is a frequent performer at the world famous Magic Castle. His TV appearances as a talk show guest, featured performer or actor, include shows like "Magic Castle After Dark" on A&E and USA's "Ready For The Weekend." He has been featured in trade publications like Magic, The Linking Ring, MUM and other magic journals worldwide. In December 2004 Jon appeared on the cover of Genii Magazine in a issue dedicated to his magic. In April 2007, after being nominated for the last two years, Jon Armstrong was named Close up Magician of the Year by The Academy of Magical Arts. He also serves as a consultant on the television series, "The Mentalist." Please join Jon and I on this episode of the Magic Newswire's "Spirit of Magic Podcast."
