Willman, a St. Louis native and 2021 Critic’s Choice nominee, is best known for his 2018 Netflix series “Magic for Humans” where he charmingly performs a mix of magic and social experiments on the streets of Los Angeles. “Magic for Humans” instantly became one of the most streamed shows on Netflix, garnering more than150-million views to date. He was signed for two additional seasons when in March 2020 during the pandemic, he had evolved his show for stay-home audiences “Magic for Humans @ Home.” His goal was to take everything fans loved about his Netflix show and pack it into a hilarious hour of mind-blowing magic and mind reading. The Los Angeles Times called Willman, “A new breed of magician who’s making magic cool again for grown-ups.” Willman was first introduced to audiences online through “Magic Meltdown” a web series for the Nerdist Channel on YouTube. As his popularity grew, he became a fixture on talk shows and he went on to host a variety of shows on Food Network such as “Cupcake Wars” and “Halloween Wars” as well as Disney Channel’s “Win, Lose or Draw” until landing his first comedy special “Sleight of Mouth” on Comedy Central in 2015.
