Ben Seidman


With appearances on "Magic Outlaws" For the Travel Channel and consulting for shows such as "Criss Angel: Mindfreak" and "The Mentalist" on CBS, Ben is building quite a reputation for himself as one of the best and brightest young names in magic. With his contemporary styling, unique and innovative effects and similarity in age to college students, he is a perfect fit for this market.

Perhaps Ben's own succinct description of himself is the most apt. "I do magic tricks, sometimes on TV, but mostly in real life. That is the very quick elevator pitch. I tour performing a combination of standup comedy, sleight of hand and psychological manipulation with a little bit of pickpocketing."

Ben has been performing since he was a kid. "I did my first gig when I was 12 and I was not very good, but I kept going. I have been involved in theater since I was a kid, performing all through high school and college, which was great experience for my current occupation."

Not many performers have the opportunity to study a major in college that so perfectly fits their chosen career path. Ben has clearly chosen the right one, as he continues to make a name for himself and amaze audiences across the campus market.
