I have enjoyed watching many of the magicians named in the various posts to this topic. However, the first comedy magician I saw was Roy Benson, and if he were still alive today I think he could hold his own with those named already. Sometime during the 60's, towards the end of his career, I saw Roy perform in the Catskills. His psychiatrist routine was a very funny, and way ahead of its time, stand-up (actually lie-down) comedy set. His billiard ball and salt pour were strong pieces of magic and had built in comedy.

I meant to add Jay Marshall to my post. There is no doubt that he was a wonderful comedic magician and ventriloquist.

I can't say there is one identifiable best, but there are certainly those who at the top tier and for that I'd pretty well go along with korttihai_82's list

There are a lot of magicians with funny acts.
However there are not a lot of truly funny magicians.
David Williamson is a funny magician.
His is very quick witted and uses his improv skills to find comedy in almost any situation.
He is the Jonathan Winters of magic.

He's dead now, but my father worked on the bill with him in vaudeville and at the same time that Houdini was working.... He made more money per week than Houdini and IMHO was the funniest magician of all time.... FRANK VAN HOVEN Smile

Another impossible question to answer...

Without exactly knowing why I say: Mac King
