The amazing, Amazing Jonathan

Reading time: 1-2 minutes

Amazing Jonathan died recently. He was one of the funniest comedy magicians, and even one of the funniest comics without the magician part. I got to see him live over a decade ago when he was still in Vegas. If you're not familiar with him, look him up on YouTube.

There's also a documentary about him worth checking out. I saw the documentary when it debuted and toured in Phoenix in 2018, which Amazing Jonathan attended. I got a chance to chat with him for a bit afterward. I was nervous at first, but he immediately makes you feel comfortable with his warm, welcoming personality, as if you were already good friends with him. His stage act is very much like that and some of his best moments are with audience members.
