Brian Kaufman

The Boise Weekly has a lengthy and interesting profile of magician/comedian Brian Kaufman in their latest edition.  Mr. Kaufman went from breaking his neck at the age of five to performing stand-up magic and comedy at the still youthful age of 20. 

 

Mr. Kaufman’s parents bought him a magic set to keep his mind and fingers occupied during the one year rehabilitation from two dislocated cervical vertebrae.  After he was fully healed, he was apparently still emotionally vulnerable thus allowing the art of magic seduce him. 

 

Within months, he was performing parties and shows at the JCC.  He went from $10.00 a show (when he was 10) to $500.00 a show now.  At 15, Mr. Kaufman was enlisted to appear at Busch Gardens and by the time he was 18, he had his own theater. 

 

When not on the road in comedy clubs or other venues d’art, Mr. Kaufman is completing his undergraduate degree at Chicago’s DePaul University.  He is also making short films and video-taping his yet to be purchased series, Brian Kaufman’s Magic Warehouse. 

 

The Boise Weekly quotes Mr. Kaufman saying something with which we can readily identify.  ?I?d much rather be talking to 3,000 people than three.  I can feel the audience, and I?m more relaxed and comfortable.  That?s how I know this is what I want to do.”
