Ben Seidman

Artist Overview

Ben Seidman currently stars in Magic Outlaws 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.

In 2011, Seidman was chosen to be the face of the newest Toshiba/Intel campaign: a hidden camera reality show directed by Jamie Kennedy, during which Ben used his pick-pocketing skills to slip computers into people’s handbags without them knowing.  The “I Was Framed” campaign went viral with over two million views and continues to grow.

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.  In 2011, he spent 3 months in Stockholm, performing and creating 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 uses underground sleight-of-hand and psychological manipulation to pick-pockets, read minds, and suspend disbelief.  His performances weave these amazing moments around stand up comedy and true stories about living in Las Vegas.
