Ben Seidman appeared on Penn & Teller: Fool Us on the CW network and starred in two specials on Travel Channel.

Seidman is the only person in history to be named the Resident Magician at Mandalay Bay, Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. After several thousand performances at numerous luxury casinos, Seidman has become known as a powerful young staple of the Las Vegas entertainment scene. His residency at Mandalay follows a three-season contract as creative consultant for Mindfreak on A&E, during which he designed the illusions performed by Criss Angel.

Seidman has headlined the Atlantis Resort & Casino in the Bahamas, performed one hundred and twenty shows at The Venetian in Macau China, as well as hundreds of shows at Harrah’s Hotel & Casino. Earlier this year, he spent 3 months in Stockholm, performing and directing Helt Magiskt, for SVT, the biggest TV channel in Sweden.

In addition to his many performances on the Las Vegas Strip, Ben is a favorite at the world famous Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach, CA, a headliner at Catch a Rising Star comedy club, and a frequent performer at the Magic Castle in Hollywood. Ben also opened the critically acclaimed Just For Laughs Tour through Vancouver, Victoria, and a number of other North American cites.

Seidman’s performances are jam packed with stand-up comedy, fascinating true stories, and world- renowned sleight-of-hand. His energy and playfulness are contagious as they spread through the audience and he never fails to give a sensational performance
