Justin Flom

Justin Flom

Justin Flom is a nationally acclaimed magician. A kid from Minnesota, Justin continues to captivate both online and in person. In 2016, Justin performed on one of the largest tours in the U.S.—Florida Georgia Line. He also performed magic tricks for the “Magic of CRS” campaign (Country Radio Seminar that saw the avid music fan tape magic tricks with country stars like Jennifer Nettles, Trace Adkins, Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley, Frankie Ballard and others), and released his first book “Adventures of a Kid Magician.” The numbers of his followers grow exponentially every week.

What sets Justin Flom apart from other magicians is the simplicity of his magic and the fact that he cracked the code on doing close-up magic on giant stages. He holds the distinction of being the first magician ever to perform card tricks for a sold out crowd at the fabled Madison Square Garden. “My magic is organic,” says Justin. ”That means all of my magic uses ordinary objects.

Justin’s resume also includes appearances on:

  • NBC® TODAY Show
  • The Ellen DeGeneres Show
  • The Rachael Ray Show
  • Late Night with Seth Meyers
  • Late Late Show with Wayne Brady
  • WWE Smackdown
  • Wizard Wars – Justin was the lead “wizard” and co-creator of this SyFy Network series
You won't want to miss his incredible performance!
