What Do You Know About The Magic Castle?

Hi guys!

So this is pretty exciting for me! After a few years, I am preparing to appear at the Magic Castle again! I’ve performed there twice already and both times was a blest! I had a hard time scheduling the show before, because I use to live and work in Vegas, but now that I moved to Los Angeles, this was much easier to organize. 🙂

The Famous Magic Castle was built in 1909 as a private home than bought up by Milt Larsen on a September of 1961. Finally, officially opened its doors at 5 p.m. on January 2, 1963.

The Castle has become the world-famous “home” to the Academy of Magical Arts, Inc.and their invited guests. Beginning with a charter membership of 150, the Academy has grown into a world-renowned fraternal organization with a membership of nearly 5,000.

Currently Neil Patrick Harris serves as the President of the Board of Directors of Hollywood’s Magic Castle. He is a fan of magic, like his character on How I Met Your Mother. Harris won the Tannen’s Magic Louis Award in 2006 and hosted the 2008 World Magic Awards on October 11, 2008.

Have you ever had the opportunity to visit the Magic Castle?
