Justin Willman: Magician and host of the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars
March 23, 2013
The LA Times calls Justin Willman, “a new breed of magician who’s making magic cool again for grown-ups.” From his monthly sell-out shows in the back of a trendy LA comic book shop to huge theaters and music venues across the country, Justin has become one of the busiest touring performers in America. His comedy-flavored miracles have earned him a devoted cult following as well as frequent television appearances on The Ellen Degeneres Show and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Sweet-toothed frosting fans will recognize Justin as the magical host of Cupcake Wars on the Food Network for the past eight seasons, but his greatest trick to date was receiving a standing ovation from President Obama following a private performance at the White House. How did he do it? Magnets.
