Product Features:

This fascinating biography details the life of magician Marshall Brodien, best remembered for his TV Magic Cards and TV Magic Sets commercials from the 1970’s, and his long-running career as Wizzo the Wizard on WGN-TV’s “Bozo's Circus” and “The Bozo Show” in Chicago. Brodien’s unique story begins in the late 1940s, when he took his first job demonstrating tricks in a Chicago magic shop. He recounts his fascinating journey toward show-business success, from his “freaky” days as a sideshow barker at an amusement park and his performances at the mob-owned Magic Lounge in Cicero, to his long-running gig as a nightclub hypnotist at Chicago's posh Cairo Supper Club. The book also highlights Brodien's influence on other major magicians, including Lance Burton, Siegfried & Roy, and Penn & Teller, and concludes with a look at his current career as one of the most successful marketers of magic sets in the U.S.
