John L - Magicians
John L became involved in magic in a roundabout way. When he was eleven years of age, his older brother Mike bought a Mattel magic set. Mike quickly lost interest, so he gave the set to John. A love affair soon began! Over the years, as John delved deeper into the magical arts, his skills and abilities put him in demand as an entertainer. In 1977, at 21 years old, with help and support of his parents, Al and Marion, he opened a magic shop in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. The shop was short lived, but through friendships made at the shop, he met his first wife Betsy. They are still happily married! In 1987 with their 6 month old son James, they opened a new magic shop in West Allis, Wisconsin. The magic shop soon became a gathering spot for many local magic enthusiasts. In 1994, they closed the store to resume a somewhat more normal life. In the years before, during and after their magic shop business, John has been doing magic shows of all types. He’s been performing magic almost his entire life, and he’s going to keep doing it until he gets it right. He looks forward to performing for you!
