Who doesn’t love magic and magicians? My guest this week, Justin Willman is not only a talented magician he is also a stand up comic. A combination that adds up to amazing entertainment.
We learn how a couple of broken arms at the age of 12 put Justin on a path to stardom. With the stage name Justin Kredible, given to him by his mom, Justin honed his early craft at kids birthday parties and entertaining friends.
His love of magic eventually led him to LA and the legendary club the Magic Castle. Although his first visit did not go as planned he did end up doing lots of stage time.
Now he travels the country with his combo show of magic and comedy and will soon bring his talent to TV. Justin has just finished filming 6 episodes of his new show Magic for Humans for Netflix. A show that looks at magic from different facets of being human. Example: Love, guilt, self-expression, etc. I am intrigued and can't wait to watch.
We also learn what it takes to bring a show from an idea to your home.
Magic isn’t his only talent Justin also was the host of the show Cupcake Wars and more on the Food Network. He shares the worst cupcake he ever sampled and some of his favorite flavors. Oh and we find out how a magician ended up hosting a food show in the first place.
Justin also shares his wedding with us. He married Jill a couple of years ago in a ceremony that was both unique and romantic. The couple also threw in a little magic… The video of their first dance is mesmerizing. Suspend reality for a bit and let Justin bewitch you with his story!
