Magician Doc Dixon
Magician Doc Dixon at Arcade Comedy Theater for TWO SHOWS.
8PM: He's performing with variety act Howard Mincone.
10PM: Catch him alongside some hilarious short-form improv with Ruckus.
Doc Dixon has spent the past 25+ years performing at resorts, corporate events and comedy clubs across the U.S. He started in magic at the age of ten when he saw the card cheating moves in the movie, The Sting. That same year, his older sister gave him a book on sleight of hand. Over the decades that one book grew into a library numbering thousands of sleight of hand books. In other words, the ten year old never quite grew up. Like he did when he was a teen, he still practices his chosen craft hours a day, spending the rest of the time writing the hilarious material that makes his presentations a standout.
Becoming a professional in his twenties, he's performed with the Tonight Show's Jay Leno and has twice performed for the First Family at the White House. He has appeared on the affiliates of all major networks -- ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox. The #1 trade journal of professional magicians said, "Doc is one of the truly great working magicians and a hilarious performer. He is inspiring on every level."
Audiences love Doc because his shows are a combination of hilariously off-the-wall comedy "Sir, that's a permanent marker. That means it will always be a marker," and amazing magic he does things with a potato and a twenty dollar bill, well, you have to come to the show.
Magicians themselves love Doc, as he often speaks at magician-only seminars, sharing some of his favorite secret magic creations.
And EVERYBODY loves Doc and his "boy next door" make that "funny, slightly sarcastic neighbor next door" demeanor that makes for a clean show your mom would even love.
He says, "I'm excited to be performing at Pittsburgh's newest comedy hotspot, the Arcade Comedy Theater. We're going to have a great time!"

Combine the talents of a mime and a juggler. Add in the hyperactivity & attention span of a five year old. Mix that with a clean, lightening fast wit and the stage presence of an NBA point guard. You get the one and only Howard Mincone!
Starting with a career as a break-dancer (yes, he can still dance!) Howard later picked up the art of juggling and physical comedy. With over 20 years of experience Howard has been blessed with the tremendous opportunities of performing with some of the world's premier magicians, ventriloquist and comedians. Howard has become one of North America's most sought after entertainers.
