Comedian, Magician, Mind Reader and Motivational Speaker Alan Paoletti
Beginnings in Magic and Mentalism
Alan Paoletti grew up in Michigan where from an early age had a fascination with magic and illusion. When he was 5 years old he saw a magician on television and was absolutely glued to the screen, his Mother saw this and bought him his first magic set. After practicing for days he showed his family his first trick, which was...ok. He kept working on it and by the end he had an entire show which at age 7 he presented to a real audience. The joy and wonder he saw in the eyes of his audience really made him feel like he did something special and he knew he had to keep spreading happiness.
The lessons Alan learned in magic taught him about hard-work, practice, respect, the wonderful differences between us and how to bring people from all walks of life together.
Before moving full time into show business, Alan had a variety of jobs in the private sector, from Food Service to Shipping Manager he has a wide range of experience in different industries and understands what makes them tick.
In the years just before he became a full-time professional Magician, he worked with a start-up company, beginning as a consultant and later to Creative Director, Social Networking and Marketing and Sales Manager. This taught him a lot of lessons about what does and does not work in leadership and running a business.
With this experience he set out on his own and founded APMagic, his own entertainment company. Alan undoubtedly has a soft-spot when it comes to small business owners and knows that in any business no one can get there alone, that it takes the talents of everybody as a team to get there together.
In 2005 he moved to Dallas to study Literature, Psychology, Sociology and Acting and quickly went to work becoming one of the most recognized (and busy) entertainers in the business.
Since his move to Texas, he has competed in international magic competitions, made television appearances and performed for celebrities.
He is married to the love of his life and together they have a beautiful baby boy!
He is also a proud and loving Uncle and Godfather.
While he lives in a suburb of Dallas, Alan tours the country spreading his unique and engaging blend of magic, mentalism and comedy to everyone he meets.
He is also a respected teacher of magic and consults on various projects for other magicians on TV. Including his own cameo appearances on Penn and Tellers "Fool Us" and "Masters of Illusion".
