Magician/Comedian and recent Critics’ Choice nominee Justin Willman has cemented himself as one of today’s most prolific entertainers. In his Netflix series Magic for Humans with Justin Willman, he brings his skills as a magician to the strange and misunderstood subcultures of America, while incorporating his disarming demeanor into street magic and social experiments that will boggle the mind. Indiewire called Willman the “perfect magician/hybrid prototype with incredible comedic timing,” and the L.A. Times exclaimed that Willman is, “A new breed of magician who’s making magic cool again for grown-ups.”
