Justin Willman is an American magician, comedian, actor, and TV personality. "The Guardian" dubbed him as "some kind of variety Voltron with a comic flair that marks him out as the leader of the pack". He's a regular guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992), Ellen: The Ellen DeGeneres Show (2003), and Chelsea Lately (2007); and he hosts the hit shows, Cupcake Wars (2009) on the Food Network and Win, Lose or Draw (2014) on the Disney Channel. He also tours regularly with a magic/comedy live show that "Time Out" says, "has to be seen to be disbelieved". His greatest trick yet, however, was receiving a standing ovation from President Obama, following a private performance at the White House. How did he do it? Magnets.Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Justin began entertaining at the age of 12. After breaking both of his arms trying to ride a bicycle while wearing rollerblades (a hopeless attempt to impress girls), he started learning card tricks as an alternative to physical therapy. Nicknamed by his mother as "Justin Kredible", he officially turned pro when his parents hired him to perform at his sister's fifth birthday party. (He still has not been paid for the gig.)Justin is a graduate of Emerson College in Boston, and currently resides in Los Angeles. He does not own a rabbit.
