Magician Justin Willman
Like so many great undertakings, Justin Willman’s magic career started out with a futile attempt to impress girls. Riding his bicycle while wearing rollerblades, a 12-year-old Willman elicited gasps only after he crashed over his handlebars, breaking both his arms. While confined to his hospital bed, he became entranced by the legerdemain of a visiting magician, and started badgering his mother to buy him tricks and classes at a local magic shop. Perfecting his act over the subsequent years, Willman eventually went pro, becoming one of the most booked magicians on the national touring circuit, as well as a bottomless source of behind-the-ear coinage.
In his lively shows, Willman makes viewers question reality with a deft mixture of mind-boggling magic and endearingly off-handed charm. As he told LA Weekly, his act is infused with “a healthy sense of irony and self-awareness. It spoofs the magic that doesn’t know it’s being silly.” His boyish enthusiasm and quick improvisational skills have won him hosting duties on Food Network’s Cupcake Wars and Last Cake Standing, as well as appearances on the Today show and the Rachael Ray Show.
Zanies is more than a comedy club. It's comedy history. Founded in 1978 in Chicago, the original location played a major role in the early careers of some of today's biggest laughmakers, including Jay Leno, Richard Lewis, and Jerry Seinfeld. Now spread out to locations in Illinois and Tennessee, Zanies continues to host leading witty talent on its laughter-amplifying stages.
