The Amazing Johnathan is an eccentric comic magician whose
bizarre humor and unscripted antics have earned him widespread recognition as
one of the most original and unique performers today.
Starting his professional career as a street performer in
San Francisco, Johnathan turned his boyhood hobby of magic into a full-time
job. After polishing his act on Fisherman's Wharf in the late '70's, he moved
onto nightclubs and colleges in the '80's.
The Amazing Johnathan has performed for audiences all over
the world, including countless dignitaries and high-profile officials like
President Ronald Reagan and the president of France. His fan base stretches
across the globe from the U.S. to the U.K., Europe, South America and
Australia, where he is a household name.
During the last 25-plus years of his career, Amazing
Johnathan has appeared on numerous television shows including Comedy Central's
Lounge Lizards and Premium Blend shows, F/X's The X Show, Fox's Comic Strip
Live, The Arsenio Hall Show, HBO's Young Comedians Special, Late Night with
David Letterman, Entertainment Tonight and The Wayne Brady Show, as well as
television specials such as NBC's World's Greatest Magic II and The World's
Wildest Magicians, ABC's Caesars Palace 30th Anniversary Special, Fox's
Champions of Magic, Comedy Central Presents, American Airlines' CBS Eye on
America, the Travel Channel's Amazing Vacation Homes, and The Greatest Magic
Tricks In the Universe...Ever on England's Ch. 5 UK.
In 2002, The Amazing Johnathan Show landed in Las Vegas at
the Golden Nugget for a two-week engagement. Johnathan shocked everyone by
selling out the entire run and the Nugget quickly offered him multi-million
dollar, two year deal. Being downtown and not on the strip, nobody could
believe that anyone could make the place jump again. During the next two years
he changed the casino‘s clientele to a younger, more hip crowd and brought in
more people to the showroom then Sinatra. The Review Journal nicknamed
Johnathan, “The Unlikely Savior of Downtown.“
Johnathan moved to the strip after receiving a more
lucrative offer from the Flamingo. After one year, when his contract was due
for renewal, the Nugget struck back and the MGM Grand/Mirage offered Johnathan
one of the biggest deals ever made if he returned to the Nugget. With or
without the money, he would have. It was like his second home.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal has given Amazing Johnathan
much praise, by including him on the coveted "Best of Las Vegas"
list, awarding him "Best Comedian of the Year" for 2002 and
nominating him in 2003. The Las Vegas Weekly Reader’s Choice Awards recognized
him as “Best Local Villain” in 2004 and 2005. He is also a three-time winner of
the International Magic Award for "Best Comedy Magician."
Johnathan has now been headlining in Las Vegas for a
record-breaking 11 years. After the Nugget was sold, AJ moved back to the strip
and played for years at the famous “Congo Room” at the Sahara, which over the
years was the home of Johnny Carson, Jack Benny, and The Beatles.
