Dylan Shelton Presents: Justin Willman "FULL OF IT" Featuring Bushwalla
$15 online $20 DOS
The Los Angeles Times calls Justin Willman, "a new breed of magician who's making magic cool again for grown-ups." From his monthly sell-out shows in the back of a trendy LA comic book shop to huge theaters and music venues across the country, Justin has become one of the busiest touring performers in America. His comedy-flavored miracles have earned him a devoted cult following as well as frequent television appearances on The Ellen Degeneres Show and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Sweet-toothed frosting fans will recognize Justin as the magical host of Cupcake Wars on the Food Network for the past nine seasons, but his greatest trick to date was receiving a standing ovation from President Obama following a private performance at the White House. How did he do it? Magnets.
Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Justin began entertaining at the age of 12. After breaking both of his arms trying to ride a bicycle while wearing rollerblades (a hopeless attempt to impress girls), he started learning card tricks as an alternative to physical therapy. Nicknamed by his mother as "Justin Kredible", he officially turned pro when his parents hired him to perform at his sister's fifth birthday party. (He still has not been paid for the gig.)
Justin is a graduate of Emerson College in Boston, and currently resides in Los Angeles. He does not own a rabbit.
Singer, song-juggler, and self-proclaimed "Original Gangster of Cleveland," Bushwalla represents the assorted talents of Billy Galewood.
Bushwalla began performing in musical theater at the early age of nine. At 18 he was studying theater at the American Musical & Dramatic Academy in New York City, supporting himself as a street performer by incorporating such feats as juggling, magic, face-balancing, and fire-breathing. Today, Bushwalla's sound has evolved into a unique blend of acoustic hip-hop, folk, and funk with a soul deeply rooted in authenticity and optimism.
A songwriter, collaborator and free-styler, Bushwalla co-wrote Jason Mraz's debut platinum album, "Waiting For My Rocket to Come," and sophomore release, "Mr. A-Z." Recently, his songs have been featured on hit television shows such as "Weeds," "Revenge," Fuel TV, E!s "The Daily 10" and "The Rachel Ray Show." Bushwalla co-wrote the title track to the breakout film "New York Minute" and, in 2012, his song "Mayhem is Beautiful" will be featured in the film "10 Year," starring Rosario Dawson and Channing Tatum.
