The Amazing Johnathan, dubbed "The Freddy Krueger of Comedy," is fast becoming known as the most original and bizarre acts to emerge from this era. His fast paced razor wit and tornado like approach to magic is making him a legend throughout the world.

The Amazing Johnathan is instantly recognizable from his record number of appearances on Fox's Comic Strip Live (an unprecedented twenty-four appearances), The Arsenio Hall Show, HBO's Young Comedians Special, four Showtime specials, Late Night with David Lettermen and he's been featured numerous times on Entertainment Tonight. Recently Johnathan starred in his own half-hour special for Comedy Central entitled, "Lounge Lizard" which became one of Comedy Centrals most requested specials. He also appeared in three network specials last season including, NBC's Worlds Greatest Magic II, World's Wildest Magic, and ABC's Caesar Palace's 30th Anniversary Special.

Despite making regular appearances on national television shows around the world, it's the live show Johnathan thrives on. Rolling Stone Magazine dubbed him, "one of the top road comics in the country." He was also voted into the Review-Journal's TOP 10 ACTS to see in Las Vegas this year! Johnathan has literally destroyed audiences (and stages) with a style that has been described as a cross between Steve Martin and Alice Cooper. This is because on top of the side-splitting humor, The Amazing Johnathan's show often becomes shocking and horrific! He combines his magic with original special effects that often make audience members hide their heads under the table. One second you're laughing until you can't breathe and the next you're screaming because Johnathan's just pulled the arm off an audience member.

Oddly enough, The Amazing Johnathan's fans range from eight to eighty. His most famous fan turns out to be President Reagan, who invited Johnathan to perform at the 1986 Statue of Liberty Celebration. Another fan of Johnathans changed the course of his career. Merv Griffin, who is the mastermind behind the two biggest game shows in TV history, "Wheel of Fortune" and "Jeopardy" watched Johnathan destroy audiences night after night as the headliner of his Red Hot & Rowdy revue show in Atlantic City. In 1990 Merv approached Johnathan about creating a game show based around Johnathan's live show. Together they created RUCKUS, the wildest game show ever aired. It was played in Atlantic City at Resorts International in front of 700 screaming fans each day, making it the largest audience in game show history. After seeing the wild pilot for this show, NBC bought 65 episodes which aired every night on WNBC. It is still currently seen every Saturday night on The Game Show Network.

This year Johnathan won Best Magician of the Year by the World Magic Awards which aired on FOX .
