( least the first quarter of the year!)

I started out by busking first night Pittsburgh with close up magic shows, but it still drew a large crowd (see picture)

I traveled to a national children's entertainer's convention in Washington, D.C. and took away some great ideas i'm excited to share with my audiences.

In a recent facebook magician's forum, one or 2 people argued that you can't do magic for 2 year olds. I have to disagree, while they lack 'object permance', they still love to be entertained! Here is a picture of 2-5 year olds at one of my shows.

I seen this in the newspaper, and gosh, I always look scary.  The photographer is awesome, you just can't make this face look good, lol. So far this year has been a fun one. for more information about my magic shows, reach me through my website

Colonial Magician - Al Mazing

Colonial Magician - Al Mazing

What Pennsylvania landowner donated the money to George Washington pay for our first flag?

How did we get the colonial phrases "sleep tight", "Its raining cats and dogs", and "threshold" in our lexicon?


Perfect for:

Festivals - all ages magic show
Schools - Learn about our history and our Constitution
Museums, reenactments, and more!

Magic Show at University of Pittsburgh

pittsburgh magician al mazing had a chance to perform at his alma matter, University of Pittsburgh. 

As a street performer who honed his act on the street, his whole show fit in his messenger bag. pack small play big (as seen entertaining the crowd of college kids). Gathering a crowd and entertaining them is a skill he used to perform at festivals and eventually his adult act.

Having Al's magic show for your next event, hospitality suite, banquet, or festival is always a fun time.
