Tucson is in for an incredible treat – Justin Kredible is coming to town!
Kredible is a wonderful magician and comedian, and I recently met him. Kredible got started as a magician/comedian at age 12 and got his first job at 16. He grew up always knowing he wanted to follow in the footsteps of legendary magicians David Copperfield and Lance Burton. Before he started to travel and perform, he went to college at Emerson University in Boston and got a degree in journalism. Kredible’s mom told him that he needed a backup plan – if he couldn’t be a magician, he’d be a journalist.
Kredible’s first show was at the Brotherhood of Magicians in Norfolk, Va. He won the competition! The largest place he has performed had a crowd of 2,500 people. His favorite place to perform is Tucson’s Gaslight Theatre because his grandparents live here. They love his show and enjoy watching it.
He’s been on Rachael Ray’s TV show several times. When the show got started, the producer wanted a young, up-and-coming star, and that was Kredible! He performs for all age groups, from little kids to adults. Kredible changes his jokes for the audiences but does the same brilliant tricks.
He’s has won the College Campus Activities Magazine entertainer of the year for the third year in a row and will be on an episode of “Suite Life On Deck” in August or September.
Shows are June 29 at 7 p.m. and July 1 at noon. Tickets are $16 for adults, $10 for children (12 and under) on June 29; $12 for adults, $10 for children on July 1. For tickets, call the theater at 886-9428.
