"When I was eleven, like most kids I read a book on Houdini and dreamed of becoming a magician". Unlike most kids, though, Nick's fascination with magic never wavered, but instead it grew and grew. "At sixteen, my career as a professional magician began on a Greek cruise ship.

"While I lived in England I performed at charity events for royalty including Princess Alice, Lady Churchill and Princess Margaret, and the nearly royal like J. Paul Getty." Eventually the time came for Nick to leave England ("I left when I realized that I was never going to become King" he quips) and head to California, USA.

"I emigrated in 1974, and became a member of the prestigious Magic Castle, performing every type of magic from close up to illusion. The Castle in the mid seventies was a Mecca of magic, and I performed card tricks for Ingrid Bergman, Goldie Hawn, Tony Curtis and many others."

Nick Lewin's big break came in 1979. "I appeared on the Merv Griffin Show, live from Las Vegas, performing the linking finger rings. I shared a dressing room with Garry Shandling! Next I appeared on Merv's show in Hollywood, then the John Davidson Show, and soon after I got a contract at the Los Angeles Playboy Club for a year.

Nick Lewin's act has taken him around the world at least five times while working for the major cruise lines. "One of my most memorable experiences was in Bermuda when I performed for a Saudi Arabian prince on his private yacht. There were only 35 guests."

Nick Lewin came to Las Vegas when given an opportunity to create a brand new type of show: a one man daytime comedy magic club. It's proved a smash hit, packing the showroom twice a day, six days a week, and now entering its third year.

Nick Lewin is a well respected lecturer, comedy magician and a corporate motivational speaker.

Not to be missed. One opportunity only.

A night of fun and education from a busy working professional who has much to teach and share.
