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!”

Virginia Department of Health Professionals
"Joshua Lozoff's presentation, The Magic of Communication, was one of the absolute best presentations we've ever had at the agency. The way he seamlessly blended his incredible magic skills with his message of how to better communicate and engage in your everyday life was nothing short of magical (pun intended). He connected quite wonderfully with our staff, and 90% of the staff rated him at 4 stars or better. We would absolutely recommend any and everyone to hire him, and would absolutely love to have him back!"
"As always, an amazing performance by Joshua Lozoff. He had a crowd the entire night!"
"Joshua Lozoff showed us his very best last night, with compelling illusions, true grace and stellar showmanship. Thank you for your continued support of my events through the years. It has been such a pleasure to work with you."
Prairie Health Ventures
"WOW!!! Joshua Lozoff was incredible. His talent is right on point. He had the audience oohing, aahing and gasping with every new trick/illusion. As a professional he was exceptionally easy to work with - no demands. His requests for the room and audio set up were reasonable. He showed up on time and even stayed after his performance to wow a few of us even more. What I liked was that he really utilized a good number of audience members. Sometimes you'll get just one or two that get to participate - but he really spread the fun around and everyone had a super time. Afterwards people were saying over and over 'How did he do that?'????? I am so happy to have booked him and will definitely keep him in mind for future performances."
Carolinas Cord Blood Bank
"Joshua Lozoff did an excellent job. He delighted the group of 60 with his magic and humor. He arrived more than two hours early to set up giving him a long period before he commenced but he seemed happy to do that and was a pleasure to work with. Many of the participants have commented on his entertainment and expressed how much they enjoyed him being there. Thanks."
"It's always a treat to have Joshua Lozoff on-site. He's the consummate professional, has a great show, and is just so much fun to be around. We plan on having him again for 2016."
BAYADA Home Health Care
"Joshua Lozoff exceeded our expectations. He arrived early to ensure his equipment was set-up and microphone worked. He was also very respectful of ensuring his props would not be in our way when we gave our awards. He was a perfect fit for our show. He connected well with the audience and had right the mix of humor and tricks. He was also very accommodating when our awards ran over a bit in time. He shortened things to ensure that our program still finished in plenty of time. Everyone LOVED his performance and we were still talking about it on Monday."
"The comments from the staff and guests were overwhelmingly positive, and everyone agreed that the event was a great experience. Guests were particularly complimentary about the magic shows by Joshua Lozoff, finding them engaging, compelling and just plain fun! His enthusiasm on stage and obvious delight in interactions with guests add just the "magic touch" during an event such as this. People want to participate in whatever he's doing up there! It's more than stage magic, because his focus is on our guest'"
"Everything was excellent! Everyone loved Joshus Lozoff! Thank you!"
