Joshua Lozoff

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!”
