The Wizard of Pinball performs endlessly comedic interpretations of a magician trying to get his tricks to work.

I, the Wizard of Pinball, am a street performer, or Busker, regularly appearing in Old Pasadena, California at the entrance of One Colorado, at the corner of Fair Oaks and Colorado Blvd. on Friday and Saturday nights. Depending on what suits my fancy, it might be Victoria's Secret at 21 W. Colorado Blvd., or 110 W. Colorado Blvd. Ghirradelli Chocolate Co. if I'm in the mood for a San Francisco flare. DISCLAIMER

Act Description

It's a weird, wild, wacky, wonderful rush of adrenaline [for me anyway], packed with more jokes than you'll get, a bit of live music, no spuds, and the real secrets of life, fakirwize (pron. FAKE-EAR-WISE.)

Remember that for the squeamish, the young and the young at heart that less shocking and more appropriate entertainment is available: Rates

The cost is a reasonable industry standard of $100 per hour, with a minimum of two hours. Transportation costs, set-up and travel time may be applied. Discounts and reductions may be available to qualified institutions. contact me with a description of your entertainment function and intended audience for more information, customization and a quote. 1-42-42-Wizard (949273)

Appeared at

I am no longer a member of the Magic Castle, because my act revolves around revealing the secrets of magic. I have performed at Venice Beach (which sucks,) Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade (hardly worth the permit fee,) Universal City Walk (excellent, once the audition is passed,) the Magic Castle, Hollywood (no longer), Ghirardelli Chocolate Manufactory, San Francisco and Las Vegas, both as a Busker for Main Street Station and in various trade shows like Comdex and Networld/Interop. I have designed shows from period parlour magic to elaborate and extravagant stage shows, performed in mid air, on small tables, balconies, hospitality suites, school auditoriums and cruise ships like the Star Dancer. I am certain that the evening we spend together will be pleasantly surprising, amazing, entertaining and informative.

Have a DisneyMagic day!

LightBringer Project. The nationally-recognized Pasadena Doo Dah Parade
[old website], in its twenty-ninth year at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend, November 24, 2007 [check date again, as this is an educated guess 626-449-3689] this is a free day for zaniness and wackiness in an otherwise pretty straight-forward world. The LightBringer Project also aranges many other events such as The Spotlight Award Murals at The Music Center, which were permanently installed last summer under the leadership of Manuel Gonzalez. Killer B's a series of sci-fi classic films which were screened outdoors against a large wall in Old Pasadena (look forward to more great films outdoors for free this summer, complements of One Colorado, The Light-Bringer Project, and The AFI!). Peruvian dance, sculpting for kids, and internet workshops, also provided free to the public thanks to Earthlink Network. Past visual and performance arts events we have produced include the famed Culture Factory (Boy were those the days!), Arroyo Seco Earth Walk and Festival, The American Indian Festival and Market Place, Secrets Out!, Arts Alive!, Dia De Los Muertos commemorating Cesar Chavez, ArtPark, Cultural Enrichment Programs in Area Parks, etc. Venues for artist exhibition over the years have included Armory Center for the Arts, The Old YWCA Building, Da-Gallery, Museum of Tolerance, Cadillac Cafe, Club Shelter, Holly Street Gallery, Occidental College, Poly-Technic School, Homes, Studios, Pavement!

The Light-Bringer Project invites participation from those of all ages and backgrounds. For More Information Call LightBringer 626-449-3689 or email lbp @

If you are a member of this listing, or would like, on your own website, to link performers, add: #performers to your current location(URL) or you would like to reference busking use #buskers or #busking. For example:

If you are a performer in Old Pasadena and you want to add or update your listing [a really good idea since few have actually provided a description of their act - leaving me to make up one that may not be as flattering as they would like it] then send me by this very U-mail link or even placed by your hand into my hat;
  1. Your name or the name of your act
    (or even the name of Rascal, your pet raccoon,)
  2. a gleaming description of your act
    (make it flattering as you like it,)
  3. where and when folks can find you
  4. as much contact information as you can safely publish
    (website, email, phone and P.O. box are recommended. Home address is not recommended.)
Listings are a complimentary public service and are posted at no charge to Buskers who qualify (a regularly appearing act.) They are sponsored by the members of the SmileBringers coalition, who don't pay me a dime, so updates are infrequently a week to a month. Performers on this list are encouraged to join the SmileBringers coalition in an effort to self-regulate, talk shop, network, provide the ego boosting status quo of membership in an exclusive club (full of lunatics,) attend meetings (informally scheduled on weekends,) VOTE with strength in numbers, but mostly to present busking in Pasadena in a funtastic favorable light to the public and our politicians. Lest we not learn from the mistakes of Santa Monica Buskers.

Performing Magic has been the toughest, most hard working, job of my life. Striving to present fresh fantastic feats standing in one spot for twelve hours, without a meal or restroom break, is a real test of endurance. I do it to make folks happy. It would hardly make one famous, and the pay… don't get me started. Suffice to say that working only for tips and donations, although presenting a staggering opportunity for surprisingly creative economic economy of ones personal life, only a fool would believe great wealth could be achieved.

In other words the hours are lousy but the pay blows wet mangy goats.

Well, here is your chance to change all that!
A Hand Up! Not a Handout.

A Hand Up! Not a Handout.
That's right! Your deductible donation to the performing arts goes straight into the hat, and one hundred percent of administration fees are not enough to keep the magic alive. If you have ever taken a dollar away from the table or taken an idea to heart then now is the season to put something back. If you have enjoyed the show or merely walked by, even if you didn't have a penny in your pocket at the time, please pledge your support of starving artists now. The magic can only be kept alive by donations from viewers like you.

Image of Ilusion

In your mind is a mirror that you can see all Earth in,
Everything surrounds you, all of the time,
things that you learn from your father, mother, friends and enemies.

You learn everything that is real.
But He is ilusion the one that created the great magicians as well.
When this ilusion is done well you can get to think that He is real.

Many of our problems are ilusion of other people who teach our minds and the great power
but in the world is the ability to put ilusion in
the minds of other people to separate the image of ilusion.

— Adan

Imagen de Ilusion

En tu mente hay un espejo en el que puedes ver toda la tierra,
todo lo que te rodea, y tu mismo tambien vez cosas que
aprendes por tu padre, madre, amigos y enemigos.
Por tu escuela todo lo que es real. Pero tambien es ilusion la
que cren los grandes magos.
Cuando la ilusion esta bien hecha puedes llegar a pensar que
es real.
Muchos de nuestros problemas, son ilusion de otras personas
que vienen a nuestras mentes y el poder mas grande en el
mundo es la abilidad de poner ilusion en las mentes de otras
personas separar la imagen de la ilusion.
