Jon Armstrong’s ‘Comic Amazement’ 
Takes Home Audience Choice Awards from Hollywood Fringe 2017

After a phenomenal run at the 2017 Hollywood Fringe Festival, world-renowned magician Jon Armstrong’s Jon Armstrong: Comic Amazement has been named an Audience Choice Award Winner and received a “Double Sweet” rating from theatre publication Better Lemons for its overwhelming positive reviews from both audiences and critics alike.

In Comic Amazement, Armstrong - equipped only with his wit and a pack of cards - mystified audiences with his remarkable magical talents while keeping them laughing . . . loudly!  In previous years, Armstrong was honored with the 2011 Fringe Award for Best Cabaret or Variety Show.

Armstrong honed his magical and comedic talent beginning at age 20, when he became the resident magician at Disney World and then a recurring headliner at Caesar’s Magical Empire. Soon after, he started touring all over the world, performing in over 30 countries to date.  Having grown up in Orlando, Florida, he now lives in Los Angeles, where he is a frequent performer and award winner at the world-famous Magic Castle.

You have also seen Armstrong amaze Kathy Lee on The Today Show, cause Penn on CW’s Penn and Teller’s Fool Us to exclaim his act as “the most original I’ve ever seen!” and have Jay Leno profess his love to him on The Tonight Show.

More plans are currently in development to bring both Jon Armstrong: Comic Amazement and his second Hollywood Fringe production, Name This Magic Show, to additional audiences.  Stay tuned to the Comic Amazement Fringe website and for more details.
