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!”

Carobell, Inc.

"Joshua Lozoff has the same excitement with each performance as if it is the first time he's done the trick. He really relates to the audience and looks like he's having as much fun as we are. We had some scheduling concerns with the number of guests, and he was gracious enough to do two shows so we could split the audience and give everyone a chance to see the magic."

Director of Operations, Company Celebration (Atlantic Beach, NC) 7/7/2018

Rotary Club of East Chapel Hill

"Joshua was fantastic! We had never had a magician perform for our Club, always the same old tired band thing, so we took a bit of a risk booking Joshua. We couldn't have been happier! He set the tone for our entire "Magical Year" and we are still riding that wave months later. His show was incredible and completely engaging. Thank you!"

"Joshua Lozoff promised to entertain, inspire and amaze…and he didn't disappoint! From beginning to end, he was an absolute pleasure! The audience connected with his funny and charismatic personality and were absolutely in awe of his illusions and mind-bending tricks. Our guests have not stopped raving over his performance and we couldn't be happier!"

"I want to express my sincere thanks for the phenomenal performance Joshua Lozoff gave at our Good Samaritan Fund Dinner. The group here is still talking about all that they experienced and that 'the evening was truly magical'. I am even hearing from people who weren’t even in attendance that they 'heard the entertainment was spectacular and were sorry to have missed it.' I knew he was going to be outstanding but could never have imaged just how truly outstanding. I think one of the best comments I keep hearing is that 'his performance was different that anything the group has ever seen.' Joshua mixed so many wonderful elements into his performance that everyone in the audience was drawn in from the start. It was humorous, educational, entertaining, engaging, mind-blowing and so much more! I also want to thank him for his professionalism. His personable style is sincere and that certainly came through. I appreciated the way he respected each volunteer that joined him on stage and how he empowered each of them. It was obvious each of them felt comfortable as they all had huge smiles on their faces as they came off stage. Thanks for going above and beyond. I know the group is going to be talking about your visit for a long time!"

His was fantastic not only with the adults but with the children also. His close up magic was just as great as his stage show. He was so professional and funny at the same time. We all were VERY IMPRESSED with his performance and in just talking to him. What a great person."

"Joshua Lozoff is a wonderful entertainer! He was the perfect headliner for our signature fundraiser – Opening Doors, which debuted its Las Vegas theme. Joshua did not disappoint – attendees continue to tell me how much they enjoyed their experience at our event, especially Joshua’s illusions that left them amazed. As the event organizer, I was grateful for Joshua’s ability to listen to our vision for the evening and to adapt his show – on stage and one-on-one; he made the evening magical for guests, volunteers, and staff. He’s such a great attraction that we invited him back this September for our return to Las Vegas via the Carolina Inn!"
