Mark's Magic Bio
Mark Benthimer's journey through magic has taken him from a kid working the children's party circuit in California, to opening for rock legend Sammy Hagar at his new millennium concert in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico to headlining in casinos as the star of his own illusion show. Currently Mark is the star of the All American Magic Theater in Portland Oregon.
But this magic shop owner and former Marlboro Magician's career almost ended at age 13 when he became the FBI's most wanted magician. Unaware that direct mail advertising and use of mailboxes are federally regulated, young Mark set out stuffing business cards and brochures into neighborhood mailboxes. His address on the cards made him easy enough to find, but when the FBI knocked on his door they were surprised to find their lawbreaker was barely past puberty. They let him off with a warning and his promise to find a new way to advertise. He did and the rest is history.
