My guest today is Leon Etienne. He is a world renowned illusionist, and he’s rolling through upstate New York, doing a show this Saturday at Stanley theatre. He’s the creator of Magic Rocks, has been featured on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, America’s Got Talent, Penn & Teller’s Wizard Wars, and much more.
We had a fantastic conversation about why we need a little bit more magic. In our lives. We talk about the business of magic and how he started from learning some simple tricks at home when he was 12, to building this career, where he travels all over the world, showcasing one of the kind illusions.
We talk about his trajectory of making magic a career that’s become a full fledged touring operation that goes all over the world. We’ll talk about some of those big breaks, whether that’s America’s Got Talent, or working with Penn and Teller, meeting his heroes, bringing magic to the people during the pandemic and much much more. It’s a really wide ranging conversation and it was awesome to catch up with Leon. I hope you guys all check out the show if you’re in the region this Saturday night at the Stanley… and let’s let’s get right into it.
