SHOW SOLD OUT!
Last year the Society of American Magicians produced a show for their annual convention titled The Jersey Boys Of Magic that featured six of the best magicians in New Jersey. The show ended up winning a Producer’s Award (the first time that award was ever presented).
Since then there have been several attempts to reunite the group for a fringe festival or some trade shows but scheduling conflicts made it impossible… until now. Four of the original members, David Corsaro, Will Fern, Rocco Silano, and Meir Yedid will be appearing in this Jersey Boys of Magic Reunion Show as part of the Magic After Dark series at the Turning Point.
David Corsaro is a consummate professional who is equipped to entertain audiences as small as one to a theater of thousands. He is a regular MC and performer at New York City’s longest running Off-Broadway magic show and has performed his amazing feats of magic for Fortune 500 companies (Wrigley’s, Panasonic, Nestle, and Viacom) as well as top music acts (Chicago, Earth Wind and Fire and The Milwaukees).
David also donates his talent for a variety of charitable organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Hurricane Sandy Relief and Lions International. David’s personal brand of magic can be described as an enthusiastic blend of magic and comedy that will have you laughing while riveted to his every move.
Will Fern has been a busy performer in and around the NYC area for more than twenty years. From corporate events to cruise ships and all manner of private affairs, Will has a trademark style combining good clean fun and amazing magic.
He spent several years honing his craft in Barbados, is a regular at the world-famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, and is best known among his peers for his strolling magic at all manner of affairs, in which he was crowned “International Champion” in 2011.
Early on in his career, Rocco studied under the legendary sleight-of-hand master Tony Slydini. After winning the Golden Lion Award for stage and close-up magic from Siegfried & Roy in 1986, his career began to flourish as a magic teacher, innovator, and world class performer.
Rocco has probably won more major awards for his magic than anyone he is the recipient of the Merlin and Golden Lion Awards, a two-time winner of the coveted Manhattan Association of Cabarets Award, and has been nominated nine times as Magician of the Year by the Academy of Magical Arts in four different categories. He won two FISM World Championships awards (1994 in Yokohama Japan and 2006 in Stockholm, Sweden). He was most recently the Guest of Honor at Obie’s 4F Convention which is the most prestigious gathering of close-up magicians in the world.
Rocco has appeared in the VH1 celebrity magic reality series, Celebracadabra where he was the adviser and guide for celebrity partner and 1st runner-up, Hal Sparks.
Meir Yedid has given a totally new interpretation to the phrase “sleight of hand.” Disregarding the conventional accessories of the magician, Meir’s nimble hands provide the setting and backdrop for a unique, visual and funny show.
His numerous awards include: Magician of The Year by SAMPA, he was the first person to ever win the Society of American Magicians Close-Up Magic Championship more than once, he was the Guest of Honor at the prestigious Obie’s 4F Convention and most recently received a Christopher Foundation award for his contributions to magic. His television appearances include: Comedy Tonight (FOX), The Paul Daniels Show (BBC), Knoff Hoff Show (ZDFTV), Mind Over Matter (ACTV), Best Trick Ever (ABC2 [2 episodes]) and dozens of others that include some of the highest rated television shows in Japan, Germany, Australia and England.
