Master of Comedy Magic Nick Lewin joins our editorial staff as our new Entertainment Editor

Born in England, Lewin relocated to California in the mid-seventies to be closer to the world famous Magic Castle. His act quickly became a showroom favorite in Las Vegas and Lake Tahoe, where he shared the stage with performers such as Tony Bennett, Reba McIntire, Kenny Rogers and Paul Anka.

During the ‘90s Nick created an award winning one-man show in Las Vegas called ‘Comedy Magic’ that became a critical and commercial success. It was one of the very first daytime shows in Las Vegas and ran for nearly 5 years. ‘Nick Lewin’s Comedy Magic’ became the forerunner of an entirely new era of Vegas shows.

An accomplished magician and comedian, Nick is classically trained and has been featured in many TV appearances, including major acting roles on classic series such as, ‘Dynasty,’ ‘Amazing Stories,’ ‘Trapper John,’ ‘Kung Fu: the Legend Continues’ and ‘Alfred Hitchcock Presents,’ ’Misfit’s of Science,’ ‘Perfect Strangers.’ He also appeared as a performer on ‘Comedy Central,’ ‘Showtime,’ ‘HBO’ and Network TV.

In the 90s Lewin produced and hosted his own nationally syndicated show ‘The Entertainment Files.’ The audio version was amongst the first radio shows ever to be syndicated globally via the Internet. The ‘E-Files’ aired for three years on the radio and went on to become a weekly television series for the Fox Television Network. The award winning show combined celebrity interviews, entertainment news and movie reviews.

Throughout his career Lewin has been writing in one form or another, in 1976 Henry Regnery of Chicago published his first book, ‘Sleight of Crime: Murder, Mayhem and Mystery.’ The book featured murder mystery stories involving magicians. Now, 37 years later Nick is still writing and publishing books about magic, and is also a prolific columnist and writer for both online and printed magazines. His blog site has become a collective home for his various columns and essays.

When not performing or writing Nick likes to spend time in Las Vegas listening to Western Swing Music, working on his latest book, a translation of the lyrics of Bob Dylan into English.
