New York City's Modern Magician
John B. Born has dedicated his life to the performance and advancement of the magical arts. Initially apprenticed under his grandfather, John matured his skills while working as the master resident magician for five years at two world-renown magic stores - Steven’s Magic Emporium and U.S. Toy Magic. Years later, he now travels the world as a full-time entertainer, lecturer, writer, and innovator in the magical arts. He has written two best selling instructional books on magic and mentalism, and is featured on ten instructional DVDs filmed out of Las Vegas and Reno.
His performances have earned multiple national championships, including first place in the 2006 International Brotherhood of Magicians Gold Cups competition (the most prestigious annual international competition for close-up magic in the world), the Magi-Fest, as well as the Mid-West Magic Jubilee. His creations have been recognized in all major modern periodicals for magicians, including The Linking Ring, Magic Magazine, Genii Magazine, M.U.M Magazine, and Channel One Magazine.
Though initially based out of the Mid-West, John has been hired to perform in major cities all across the world, including Rome, Paris, Madrid, Zurich, Cardiff, Dublin, Bruxelles, London, Las Vegas, Hollywood, New York City, Chicago, Reno, Key West, Kansas City, New Orleans, Boston, Baltimore, Atlanta, Detroit, Dallas, Pittsburg, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Orlando, and Washington D.C. to name a few. John has been based out of New York City since 2005, where he offers his talents to private and corporate clients worldwide.
