Meet the headmaster of the Chicago Magic Lounge, Danny Rudnick!

MISTER DANNY has been performing magic since he was 5 years old. He is a regular performer at the Chicago Magic Lounge, performing magic on stage, close-up in the 654 Club, and for families during the Sunday matinee shows. He has won multiple awards for his stage and close-up magic, and performs all over Chicago at private house parties, corporate events, and even monthly at the University of Chicago Children’s Hospital.  

Outside of performing, Danny is the head of the Magic Inc. week-long summer magic camp for kids. He is also the editor of The Complete Al Leech, a book all about the magic of Chicago legend Al Leech, and is the inventor of The Selec-Trick Deck, which is a trick that has received rave reviews from many notable magicians.
