Jon Armstrong

Winner of numerous awards, including Close Up Magician of the Year,  Jon Armstrong has brought his amazing skills and magical comedy to prestigious audiences in over 30 countries worldwide. 

Growing up in Orlando, Florida, Jon became fascinated by the magic he saw in the theme parks around him and dreamed of having his own show. This dream came true when Disney asked him to bring his act to Epcot and he became the resident magician at Walt Disney World. He was only 20. 

After spending 5 years doing his show at Disney World, Vegas called and Jon answered, becoming a recurring headliner at Caesar's Magical Empire. It was between these runs in Vegas that Jon started doing tours all over the world as both a performer and lecturer, teaching others how to add humor and entertainment to their magic. 

 

Jon has also worked on many films and television shows such as "The Mentalist", "Spiderman 3" and "AntMan" as a magic consultant and designer, and is co-creator of the IDW comic series Smoke and Mirrors.  

Jon stars in the new NetFlix documentary Magicians: Life in the Impossible, about his life in magic

Jon now lives in Los Angeles and is a frequent performer at the world famous Magic Castle. His TV appearances as a talk show guest, featured performer or actor, include shows like NBC's "The Today Show", and "Tonight Show", "Magic Castle After Dark" on A&E, CW's "Penn and Teller Fool Us", Fox's "Masters of Illusion" and ABC's "Bachelorette." He has been featured in cover stories of trade publications like Magic, Genii and other magic journals worldwide. Articles have been done on him in The New York Times, LA Magazine and Harpers, just to name a few.

When you see him live,  Jon's hope is that you will laugh at his original humor, be amazed by his skills and most of all, feel like you made a new friend.
