Ed Alonzo

Act Information


Ed Alonzo, with his wonderful Groucho Marx eyebrows, Harold Lloyd Glasses, topped by his signature explosive hairstyle, is easily recognized as one of the country’s foremost comedy magicians. Don’t be deceived by his retro-style costuming, because for Ed, the tux and the magic is simply a vehicle for his intelligent and sidesplitting comedy.

From comedian, to actor, to Vaudevillian Entertainer, Ed Alonzo’s performances grab the audience’s funny bones and tickle relentlessly, leaving crowds rolling in the aisles gasping for air. While most magicians use a dramatic flair to build to a crescendo, Ed raises his audience’s anticipation with laughter.

In a word, ‘Ed Alonzo is Brilliant!’ He is often recognized as the series regular, Max – the owner of the diner, from the hit sit-com ‘Saved by the Bell’, and the costar on ‘XUXA’, the CBS Saturday Morning program. His numerous television appearances include NBC’s Las Vegas, ABC’s Full House, the CBS comedy Murphy Brown where he became one of the infamous secretaries in a guest-star role. In addition, Ed has appeared on over 100 major television variety and talk shows like The Ellen DeGeneres show, Top Chef Masters, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Animal Planet, E True Hollywood Story and Americas Next Top Model.

The Misfit of Magic is in demand all around the world. He headlined in Athens Greece at the Gilano Music Theater for a three month run. While there, he appeared and disappeared on all the major European TV talk and variety shows, magazine covers and city billboards. For the next three months Ed did the same in Brazil starring in the International Magic Festival held in both Rio and Sao Paulo then off to Malaysia starring in the Genting magic festival.
