Joshua Lozoff has been studying and sharing magic around the world for nearly twenty years. He regularly performs in theaters, and at corporate & private functions throughout the U.S., as well as Japan, Europe and across Latin America.
Before turning his attention to magic, Joshua was a professional actor in Los Angeles, including a notable recurring role on the TV show Cheers, as Gino Tortelli, and as Logan in the movie Clueless. You can see Joshua's martial arts prowess on display (he holds a 2nd degree black belt in Aikido) in the film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
After 14 years as a professional actor, Joshua left Los Angeles to regain his sanity and devote more time to service work, including volunteer stints throughout Latin America. It was during his travels that a chance encounter with a street magician sparked a new passion, and Joshua began his training. Traveling around the world, Joshua studied with master magicians on several continents. After years of full-time training, he began sharing his craft with others. Now Joshua is regarded as one of the top magicians working today. Last year, Joshua logged over 200 public and private performances; at events ranging from performing arts venues to conventions and corporate banquets.
Recently, Joshua was featured on the network TV competition show, Penn & Teller: Fool Us, and the YouTube clip of his performance is approaching 500,000 hits.
Joshua had the honor of being one of only two magicians to receive an invitation to perform at the World’s Fair in Japan. He spent two weeks as a featured performer for the USA Pavilion, entertaining Fair visitors from around the globe.
The award-winning documentary Metacarpus, about the power of the human hand, featured Joshua's sleight-of-hand mastery alongside an orthopedic surgeon and sign language interpreter.
Joshua loves sharing his craft with people in every setting, and his love and respect for magic come across in every performance. A few moments spent with Joshua can truly inspire, amaze and entertain. As an audience member recently wrote: “His passion for what he does really comes through and his humor is infectious. Many, many thanks for a job well done!”

"Joshua Lozoff put on a great show. We had a full house and everyone seemed to enjoy it. We had lots of great feedback from the crowd. I highly recommend this show!"
Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University
"Joshua Lozoff wowed the crowds but even more importantly he brought the crowds! We had our largest attendance ever for performances at our Family Day!"
Diana Wortham Theatre
"Joshua Lozoff exceeded our expectations in all areas. He was overwhelmingly gracious in all aspects from booking to marketing to outreach to performance. The almost sold out audience loved him and his ability to connect with crowd. It was one of the easiest and most satisfying shows yet this season. We highly recommend this performance to other Performing Arts Presenters. You won't be disappointed!"
"Joshua Lozoff had performed at a previous First Night Saratoga at a 90 seat venue that completely filled up for each of his three sets. Based on that positive response, for First Night 2018 we chose to make him a headlining act on the mainstage and he successfully filled over 1,000 seats for his two sets. We made sure that we had a camera and two screens on either side of the stage so that he could still maintain the intimacy of his performances. The audience, even the skeptics, loved his work and he was always a courteous showman. Joshua was easy to work with and maintained good communication before during and after. We would certainly love to have him back in the future."
"All our guests loved Joshua Lozoff's performance, especially his walking around magic. The tricks he performed right in front of your eyes were as amazing as those on the stage. Technical skill is, of course, just one part. Joshua's warm personality and presentation skill is really what made the day. Joshua was a fantastic part of our daughter's Bat Mitzvah celebration."

"In addition to Joshua Lozoff being an incredible magician, he has an incredibly magnetic personality - drawing a crowd any time and any place. It made for a 'magical' afternoon for our families."
First Night Spokane
"Joshua Lozoff was an amazing addition to our New Year's Eve program! We have had nothing but rave reviews of his performance, and many inquiries if he will be returning next year. He was a joy to work with from start to finish, as he truly brought his A game to the table. I especially appreciated him coming with me at 7AM to do a last minute TV interview when I woke him up at 6:40. He really was team a player every step of the way. I would highly recommend Joshua to anyone looking for the real deal."
"Everyone at my 65th birthday party had a WAY enjoyable time, mostly due to charming, warm and wonderful Joshua, whom we ADORE! Each guest from preschoolers to an almost-90-year-old was completely enchanted. A Duke sociology professor and a physician were so mystified as to spend the rest of the evening following Joshua's performance shaking their heads and exclaiming in awe! I will always remember ever-so-fondly my really special big birthday!"
Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University
"As always, we LOVED having Joshua Lozoff at the museum! Both the performance and the time that he spent roving were crowd favorites. I especially loved how full the auditorium was for the larger performance. That really met our goal of spreading the visitors across the museum throughout the day. I hope we can do it again soon!"
Zebulon Parks & Recreation
"Joshua Lozoff engaged the crowd and kept them entertained! Awesome! A crowd favorite!"
