On March 5, acclaimed comedy magician Justin Willman headlined The Paramount in Huntington, where he performed in front of a huge following. Digital Journal has the rundown.

Willman is known for his Netflix special magic for humans, shared that he had been practicing magic since he was 12 and joked that he had been doing it for six years. In the series, Willman brings his magic skills to the strange and misunderstood subcultures of the United States, while incorporating his disarming attitude into street magic and social experiments that will blow the minds of audiences.

He was able to read the minds of his viewers by surprising them with words they chose, and an amusing demonstration was the Rubik’s Cube, or “the magic cube” as he would call it. With the help of Siri, it has been revealed that there are 43 quintillion possible configurations of the Rubik’s Cube.

Without giving too much away, Willman is worth watching live at a venue near you.

The verdict

All in all, Justin Willman was able to put on a fun, witty, and entertaining magic show at The Paramount that’s perfect for the whole family, especially young magic fans.
