The Amazing Johnathan is part magician, part comedian and a full-time resident on the Strip. Amazing Johnathan tickets have been available for the past 12 years and they are likely to be there for another 12. He first arrived in Las Vegas back at the turn of the century to play the Golden Nugget and is now playing the windows at Bally’s Las Vegas. This is his sixth venue over the years and he will likely play another six to make it a full dozen before he finally decides to quit abusing himself, his not-so-bright assistant, and those unlucky few chosen from the audience.
For those who have never heard of the man, imagine a magician specializing in small stage tricks but drawing big venue laughs thanks to his perverse sense of humor. The self-proclaimed Freddy Krueger of Magic first struck a chord with audiences nationwide after a decade and a half of performing on a constant tour of North America and endearing himself to television audiences on talk shows and variety shows.
John Szeles, his real name, and he was born and raised Detroit, Michigan. He spread his wings, taking 15 years to travel the globe. As the Amazing Johnathan he built a following in Germany, Australia, and throughout South America, in addition to his fan base in the United States. Now, all this touring paid dividends when he landed on the Strip in 2001. His kind of insanity requires quite a bit of effort. Most of his tricks may be gags, but maintaining the intensity is killer. Thus, once he found out there are a number of hotels and casinos in Vegas he no longer needed to spend as much time on the road.
Now, he is busy writing books, dealing with a serious heart condition, and pursuing his hobbies, in addition to entertaining tens of thousands of people a year at 10 o’clock nightly. Amazing Johnathan show tickets are currently available for the show at Bally’s where, as Mike Weatherford of the Las Vegas Review-Journal concedes, he still has the edge that made him a star over a decade ago.
