Milwaukee Magician John Lewit

Performing Magic in Milwaukee for over 35 years

I became involved in magic in a round-about way. When I was eleven years of age, my older brother Mike bought a Mattel magic set. Mike quickly lost interest, so he gave the set to me. A love affair soon began.

Over the years, as I delved deeper into the magical arts, my skills and abilities put me in demand as an entertainer. In 1977, at 21 years old, with the help and support of my parents, Al and Marion, I opened a magic shop in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. The shop was short lived, but through friendships made at the shop, I met Betsy, my first wife.

Actually, we’re still happily married. I just like to keep her on her toes! In 1987, with our 6 month old son James, Betsy and I opened a new magic shop in West Allis, Wisconsin called The House of Illusion. The House of Illusion soon became a gathering spot for many local magic enthusiasts.

Our second child, Brenda, made her appearance in 1988. Brenda bears a striking resemblance to the U.P.S. man who made regular deliveries to our store. That red hair of hers had to come from somewhere! But I digress. In 1994, we closed the store to resume a somewhat more normal life.

In the years before, during and after House of Illusion, I’ve been doing magic shows of all types. I’ve been performing magic almost my entire life.

I look forward to performing for you!

Sincerely,
John Lewit
