Marshall Brodien my dear friend aka Wizzo

What can you say about Marshall Brodien aka Wizzo from the Bozo Show that hasn’t been said already.

Back in 1987 I was getting ready to head to Riverview Park & Waterworld in Wisconsin Dells for 4 months 3 show a day & 7 days a week (A Magicians dream come  true) I did stay in that and perform there with my show for a total of 4 years.


I was visiting Ash’s Magic Shop in Chicago & was introduced to Marshall that day, he asked me for a VIDEO TAPE of my show, no DVDs back then. I went home that night got the package ready to ship, and in the morning off it went. About a week later I got a call from Al Hall the WGN Bozo Show Producer & I was booked on the spot.

I  appeared on The Bozo Show 10 different times not counting reruns. I did a few Grand March For Kids this show aired every December and it was live TV. I also worked at Marshall’s Night Club in Schaumburg called Toto’s. We performed there 3 nights a week. We shared the stage with the world famous Brett Daniels, Bobby Hunt & national recording artist Chill Factor, to mention a few.

Marshall is a dear friend of mine. He is one of the kindest most generous person I believe I have ever meet.

Below are pictures from the shows we worked with Marshall, Wizzo, The Bozo Show @ The York Town Mall, Marshall autographing his book to me (The Magical Life of Marshall Brodien) My appearance on the Bozo Show as the Man Eating Fish, Marshall & I in his Museum, The Wizzo Costume, Marshall & I after one of my shows he & his wife Mary attended & just some of the many TV Magic Kits he has produced over the years.

I started doing Magic with a TV Magic Kit I recieved form my parents. I sure wish I still had the Magic Kit

Marshall your the GREATEST, glad we meet & glad we are friends.
