There is a great deal of magic involved with comedy and there is a lot of good comedy involved in magic. In the case of John Ferrentino, that statement can be taken literally. The New York born and bred comedian has long been one of the most innovative forces on both the comedy and magic scenes for the last two decades.
John has performed on over eighty television shows including, HBO, Showtime, A&E and Fox, and recently performed for President George and Barbara Bush. His performances have taken him to every state in America and all over the world.
He has worked with Jay Leno, Eddie Murphy, Rosie O Donald, Kevin James, Ray Romano, and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.
John Ferrentino humorously refers to himself as the “best comic-magician $29.95 can buy”. But for those who have experienced a performance, the tally would probably be close to priceless.
