Tim Mannix is one of California’s busiest variety arts entertainers specializing in family entertainment and corporate events. Originally from Oklahoma City, his interest in magic began at the age of eight when he received Marshall Brodien’s TV Magic Set for Christmas.
Tim spent much of his youth practicing and studying the ancient Art of magic, later becoming a demonstrator at a local downtown magic shop, Hecklers Joke Shop. In high school a stint working as an onstage assistant to local magician, Marlowe, proved a fantastic training ground for live performance experience with several cross-country trips performing at theaters, fairs and festivals and a national magician’s convention in 1977.
