Nick Lewin’s act has taken him around the world at least five times while working for the major cruise lines.

Nick Lewin, a "laugh-a-minute" magical treat is considered to be one of the most inventive, cleverest and funniest comedy-magic performers from the British Empire. There's nothing serious or death-defying here ... just some of the most hilarious and amazing gags ever presented by this delightfully charismatic performer.

Nick Lewin has starred in his own Las Vegas show for nearly 10 years and has come a long, long way since he started performing magic tricks as a kid in London, England.

Lewin will be perform at Sound Bites Grill, 101 N. Hwy 89A in Sedona, Sunday June 23, 7:30 p.m.

What got him hooked on magic in the first place? "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 16, 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 immigrated 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's big break came when "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 and soon after I got a contract at the Los Angeles Playboy Club for a year.

Nick'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 and the other acts were Reba McEntire and Ronn Lucas."

"Another personal highlight was performing with Nancy and Ronald Reagan at a variety show for Viet Nam War veterans, produced by Ross Perot in Century City. Sammy Davis Jr., Tony Bennett and Edgar Bergen were on the bill too; Michael Landon gave the innovation and Ronald Reagan followed my act!"

Nick 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 fourth year. At the same time Nick has hosted The EntertainmentFiles, a nationally syndicated radio and TV show.

Nick has also found the time to be a published author with Sleight of Hand - an anthology of murder mystery stories involving magicians which was a Paperback of the Month selection when published by Henry Regnery of Chicago. Lewin also has his own product line which you can see on his blog at

Tickets for the show are $29 on stage and $24 off stage (obstructed view). The show starts at 7:30 p.m.
