Martin Lewis Lecture September 8, 2016

Dana Daniels Lecture in April

posted Apr 3, 2016, 7:10 AM by Brian Hoffman   [ updated Apr 3, 2016, 7:12 AM ]

            Award-winning magician and comedian Dana Daniels will share his insights, stories, and tips with Ring 280 members and guests at this month’s regularly scheduled meeting on April 14th.  Best known for performing with his feathered partner, Luigi the Psychic Parrot, Dana has also received raves for his hilarious “The No Show,” where he portrays a slightly clueless janitor who ends up playing multiple roles as he attempts to cover for missing variety show performers.

            Dana Daniels was born and raised in Long Beach, California, and was a member of the illustrious “Long Beach Mystics” club, which also produced such magic luminaries as Kevin James, Stan Allen, Mike Caveney, Mark Kalin, and Michael Weber.  Daniels was the very first magician to receive the Comedy Magician of the year award from the Magic Castle, where he often appears when he is not performing for the management and top sales people for major corporations such as McDonald’s and Lincoln Financial.  He has made many television appearances, including Evening at the Improv, CBS Morning Show, Masters of Illusion, and America’s Got Talent, and has opened for such stars as Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Jan & Dean, and Charo.

            Ring 280 is excited to host what should be a very enjoyable and humorous evening with Dana … with ample opportunities to ask questions and learn from a true master of comedy magic.  Ring 280 members who have already renewed their 2016-2017 memberships (or who pay their renewal dues prior to the start of the lecture) will be able to attend for free!  Admission will be $5 for current non-renewed Ring 280 members, and $10 for non-Ring 280 member attendees.
