As far back as he can remember, Julian was enthralled with all aspects of live entertainment. Growing up, Julian recalls loving the excitement and energy of the circus, figure skating, musicals, variety shows, and of course, any illusion shows. When he was very young, his family took him to see Mark Wilson’s Magic Show. Julian was given his first magic trick, a mirror box. After that, he was hooked on magic, and the rest is history!
As a young child, Julian gained his first exposure to entertaining for live audiences. He was hired as a “Juvenile Entertainer,” an official youth employee of Colonial Williamsburg. The shows he performed in featured him entertaining audiences with stage magic, juggling with clubs and balls, 18th century dance, and fife and drum time-period music. He has fond memories of the joy he helped bring to the people watching in the audiences, and he knew he had to continue on as a professional entertainer.
As time marched on, Julian became further interested in juggling, gaining inspiration from Albert Lucas, professional juggler on ice. This led Julian to become active in the International Juggler’s Association. He trained rigorously for competitive levels of the sport and attended numerous conventions and competitions with the IJA. His hard work paid off as Julian was a four-time finalist and IJA International Silver Medalist Juggler. Simultaneously, he continued to build his entertainment business performing magic and illusions at many different events, such as restaurants, parties, school and library shows, and civic and fraternal organizations.
Today, Julian’s business model is to ensure that his audiences have fun, make memories, and believe the impossible is truly possible. His creativity and boundless energy guarantee that Pittman Magic - #1 Magical Variety Show performances are fantastically fun for all ages!
