Dan Harlan began studying magic when he was nine years old. By the time he was 13, Harlan was performing stand-up for private parties and close-up at his weekly restaurant gig. Perhaps best known for his pioneering work with rubber band magic, Harlan is also famous for his many other unique creations which span all genres of magic.
Dan has appeared on and consulted for numerous TV shows in the USA and abroad, and co-published The Minotaur quarterly magic magazine. To date, he has published more than three quarters of 103 planned video tutorials covering the entire Tarbell Course in Magic.
Krystyn Lambert has become one of the most recognized female magicians in the world. Her extensive domestic and international television performances and critical acclaim within the community of magicians caught the eye of Criss Angel, who has taken her as his apprentice. She was featured on his hit Spike TV series, BeLIEve, and appeared in his live show at the Luxor in Las Vegas with a brand new act for six months running. She is currently on tour with The Supernaturalists, which has been hailed by the Las Vegas Sun as “the most mind-blowing magic spectacle out there.”
After starring in the award-winning documentary, Make Believe, the U.S. State Department invited Krystyn to travel through Asia. She shared her passions for magic and philosophy, educating teens about critical thinking and personal goal setting. This dedication prompted Teen Vogue to name her one of the Four Youth Activists to Watch. Recently the Magic Castle in Hollywood awarded Krystyn the coveted Junior Achievement Award, proclaiming her “a magical ambassador throughout the world.”
