Justin Flom - A Magical Experience

Justin Flom’s path to crafting his own unique brand of magic has taken a circuitous route from his home town of Eden Prairie, Minnesota to Branson, Missouri to the SyFy Channel to some of the largest arenas in the country to being one of the first magicians to focus on social media on his way to becoming one of America’s most sought-after magicians – surpassing entertaining 100,000,000 fans in 2015.

Online giant about.com listed Justin as one of their “Ten Magicians to Watch in 2015,” saying: “Along with his Wizard Wars television series, Flom’s career has soared with his ability to create a presence on social media and publish entertaining videos that go viral. Here’s another magician who will increase his mainstream presence.”

What sets him apart from most other magicians is the simplicity of his magic and the fact that he cracked the code on doing close-up magic on giant stages. He holds the distinction of being the first magician ever to perform card tricks for a sold out crowd at the fabled Madison Square Garden.
