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!”

"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."

Carol Woods Retirement Community

"Everyone did have a wonderful time with Joshua Lozoff. We count the number of audience members that arrive at all our performances, and we broke a record of attendance of one hundred fifty (155) people. And, that’s with half our population being off campus for vacations and overseas excursions, and with a conflicting event. So, Joshua met & exceeded our expectations. He met all the criteria 100%. Thanks for helping expedite the performance by Joshua for us, and we hope that we can have the opportunity to have him back soon."

"Joshua Lozoff was TERRIFIC!! Comments from the crowd included - 'This was the PERFECT, Perfectly Magical Evening'. The table/strolling magic was something we ate up and the show was wonderful. Did he meet our expectations??? - Wow - he exceeded them. I have seen Joshua perform many times, and every time is Great. Josh was early to arrive, late to leave - perfect. WE WANT MORE!!!"

Belfair Country Club

"Joshua Lozoff was truly AMAZING, so accommodating and professional. He arrived early to do a walk-thru with me and make sure that the sound check was perfect. At show time, the membership was in awe with the quality of his performance. This was the best event I have ever put on. I've already contacted many of my colleagues and told them they need to book Joshua. As much as I would like to keep Joshua my secret, an entertainer of this caliber shouldn't be hidden from the country club industry. The membership are still talking about the evening and many of them called to say they heard they missed a truly magical evening. I will definitely be booking Joshua again in the near future."

His performance was fun and entertaining for all family and friends to enjoy. We received many compliments about Joshua after the wedding, and I would 100% recommend him to perform in weddings or any other event setting."

Carolina Preserve Shalom Club

"We were absolutely and totally thrilled with Joshua Lozoff and the performance. Everything was perfect. Joshua was prompt, set up easy, and Joshua was very friendly immediately. The stage setup was very nice Joshua and was very warm right away with the audience. He explained what he felt magic was about and how he developed his show based on his beliefs. The performance was spectacular. It was amusing yet very on target. The tricks were amazing, as were the mental exercises performed. And Joshua was more than accommodating after the show too. Everyone was raving about the show last night, and I had had numerous communication today with nothing but positive feedback. I gladly give the whole event a 10 out of ten."

Private Party

"Joshua Lozoff was wonderful to work with! Onstage, he is charismatic, funny and engaging. Additionally, in the weeks leading up to the party, he was extremely responsive to my emails and kept me from worrying about anything. His show left us slack-jawed! It's obvious that he's so talented because he loves what he does, and he seems to just be having so much fun! Joshua truly made the evening memorable. It's been days since my party, and people still are talking about him! He was funny, commanding, and mind-boggling on stage; he was considerate, professional and patient off stage. I couldn't have asked for anything more. I am glad I had the opportunity to work with Joshua, and would recommend him highly to anyone looking for an entertainer!"
