Alexander Great began as a magician at age 13 when a childhood friend taught him a trick. Practicing hard and competing at magic conventions, the first fruits of his efforts yielded the first place trophy for stage magic at The Pacific Coast Association of Magicians convention in 1986. The very next year he returned with an even more elaborate act, only to claim the first place throne once again. Soon thereafter, he presented illusions for Six Flags Magic Mountain, and later toured Australia as an apprentice to illusionist Chuck Jones, where he learned the real secrets of illusionary magic.
Graduating with a degree in marketing, Alexander returned to the states, performing at Hollywood’s famed Magic Castle often, where he was presented the highly respected Achievement Award. Soon after, The International Magic Awards featured his act and presented him with a trophy for Best Junior Magician. This nationally televised FOX special was the first of its kind and opened the door to developing even more breathtaking illusions, which he took abroad.
His show was presented in Japan, Stockholm, Rio de Janeiro, Taiwan and Shenzen, China. Later Caesars Magical Empire at Caesars Palace In Las Vegas featured his show and then In Lake Tahoe for two years straight at The Horizon Casino Resort. Currently he resides in the entertainment capital of the world, Las Vegas.
