Rob Zabrecky on Two Magicians One Mic Podcast

From Wikipedia: Rob Zabrecky is an Americansongwriteractor and magician. His career began as a musician while being the front man for the band Possum Dixon. He later found success as a magician and actor.

After his music career ended Zabrecky has worked throughout the United States and Japan as a magician.[11][12] In magic, he is best known for an aberrant magician character in which he combines irreverent dark humormentalism, and the artful use of elongated pauses during performances.[13] Since 2002 he has been a regular performer at the Magic Castle. In 2003 he formed the off-beat magic trio, The Unholy Threein the basement of that establishment by presenting a provocative Dada-esque combination of wizardry and off-beat humor.[14] In 2011 and 2012 he was voted “Stage Magician of the Year” by the Academy of Magical Arts.[15][15] In 2014 he was voted “Parlour Magician of the Year” by the Academy of Magical Arts.[16]

He has also been the featured magician at annual magic conventions worldwide and appeared on the cover of magic-related journals and periodicals including Genii and the Mandala.[17][18]

Was host of Who’s Hoo, an on-line interview talk show for members of the Academy Arts at the Magic Castle, which he co-created with his wife, Tommi Zabrecky. Since airing in 2008, Zabrecky interviewed over 85 Magic Castle luminaries and performing members including co-founder Milt Larsen.

In 2011, Magic Magazine described him as, “A unique persona, highly reminiscent of Norman Bates, with a bit of Rod Serling in the mix — a psycho from the Twilight Zone, doing magic.”[13]

Night of Zabrecky, a one-man variety show, directed by John Lovick, was premiered and developed at the Steve Allen Theater from 2010 – 2012.[19] The show featured highlights from his Magic Castle act, song & dance, conversations with the moon, and audience interaction.[20]“These new shows, at the Steve Allen Theater, allow Zabrecky to combine his many talents — acting, music, magic and dance — into one highly entertaining bundle with a distinct point of view.” (L.A. Times)[21]
