Yes, we got vacations at Worlds Greatest and so does Koz in AC. We had 2/3 weeks off every January and 2 weeks off at the end of the summer every year like clockwork.

Hmmmm, I smell a Café' meetup in A.C. to see Koz. My January has a few open weekends. Justin, anyone else on the east coast interested?


Actually, I'm putting a trip together with some guys already.
I just got off the phone with Michael Finney he will be at the Trop the week of Jan. 5th

I think Justin is about David Williamson's height. And he's a cyclist. They ride rain or shine. I don't think he gets tired easily.


Thanks Chris. I am the same height or he's about 1/2 inch taller? I'm in better shape though, that's for sure.

I am an animal on the bike, yes that's true, but I don't ride in the rain (unless I'm already out there and get caught in it.) or high winds. Temps are no factor! If it rains, I stay inside and ride the rollers.



As far as Kozak...I love the guy and wish him all the best!

Group rate (for 10 or more) isn't that great of a discount. $30.00 per person. That includes a "free" drink that you have to buy anyway.

TKO,

Keep us undated on the Jan. 5 date.

Hmmmm. Not sure. I''d hate to have to live on the difference ( that's from a movie and I have no idea which one ).

All things being equal, just a pic of two talented guys!

Hey FYI Koz just informed me that indeed he does not get any vacation in AC. So get out there and see him.

UHHHHHHHH??????
He already had a day off Dec. 31st
I like Kozak just like everybody else does but lets be sensible.
All headliners get days off
But who cares, he's a great performer and everybody in the tri-state area should support him. I wish him the best.

Back in the day (late 80's?) I saw Kozak and Amazing Jonathan perform a show together in vegas. I wasn't old enough to go and snuck in. It was a rowdy, crazy, funny as hell show.

I'm glad that Kozak got a show in AC. Ac could use positive long running magic experience on the boardwalk. Him being successful will help everyone.

That said, the location of that theater is horrible. Its downstairs all by itself. No slot machines, restaurants, shops...nothing. Just the business center. Decent room, but the location stinks. I could see marketing being an issue.

Hey Magic Cats, Happy New Year to all!

Just thought I would lay the Skinny.

I opened Christmas Day with a 6:00 show at The Comedy Stop in the Quarter at The Tropicana in Atlantic City.
I did go Dark on New years Eve as the room was pre sold before my contract went into effect. That will be my last day off for the next 5 years. I am under contract for 5 years 2 shows a day 3 & 6.

The Showroom is about 2 years old is beautiful, state of the art, seats 300, and costs 3 million to build out.
It's located in The Quarter at The Trop amidst high end retail stores, restaurants, and nightclubs.

The Comedy Stop has been in operation for 25 years in Atlantic City and 19 years in Las Vegas.
I have had a relationship with the Owner Bob Kephart since they opened, as a matter of fact this was my very first "Headline" gig from back in the day when Dennis Miller and I were the house MC's at the Pittsburgh Comedy Club.

The Comedy Stop and The Tropicana made me this tremendous offer after seeing my work in The World's Greatest in Vegas. They are familiar with my Comedy Club Material and seeing that I can take the "Edge" off for a Family Show saw that I fit this Market.

I will be adding a 3:00 show most likely around Valentines week after I do some intense Marketing and Promotion. TV, Radio, and print campaigns in all the major cities within a 2 hour radius of here. 23% of the population in America live in that zone.

I love this room it is perfect for me, I am doing more Magic and very little Stand-Up Comedy. I will be changing the show constantly so you will always see something different when you come. I have a deep repertoire from touring and flipping material as a Comic does for 25 years as a Headliner.


I am also the new Host of this web site and will be interviewing Headline Entertainers that come to town as well as reviewing restaurants and events.
http://www.atlanticcitypluggedin.com/index.html

I have only been opened for a week now and have already been visited by Meir Yedid, Andrew Goldenhirsh and Ken Northridge. Mike Finney will be headlining the evening show starting Monday the 5th and my old friend Joe Delion the week after.

I am also becoming a partner in The Trick Zone Magic Shop in The Quarter and will have a full line of Merchandising there.

I am Blessed and excited about this , but miss all my friends in Vegas like Jason Baney, Losander, Kevin James and his crew.....
But that is show biz, you go where you gotta go....
So if you can come see me, I'm in the market for new friends, new experiences and laughs.

I don't know why you cats are making such a big deal about 5 years 2 shows a day and no days off....
This ain't "Work" Boys.... This is Big Time "PLAY"

I'm glad I was mistaken about the location of the room. I thought it was the little theater downstairs of the casino. The fact that its in the "Quarter" will make all the difference. Tons of shops and restaurants to draw people.

Can't wait to see it.

Well, I know you say it but it still blows my mind...more than any magic trick!

Who in their right mind or other profession would commit to a five year deal with NO days off?

What other profession does something like that?

I wish you all the best of luck, yo.

I'm happy for you and sad at the same time. Sad because you won't have any time to come up to the city and take my bicycle tour.


Take care of your health and drink lots of water.

Good luck - Smile

Just thought I’d let you know I saw Kozak's show and thought it was terrific! His focus was definitely on some good strong magic, although as you know he is naturally a very funny person. He did a fair amount of mentalism as well and, as expected, his 5-minute warm up was awesome! He was also very nice about chatting with us for a while after the show.

In short, I highly recommend it!

There are some discount coupons (2 for the price of 1) in the local paper that I’d be glad to drop in the mail for any who is thinking about seeing the show before January 21. I have 4 coupons. Just PM your address.

Hey Ken, sounds great.
I went twice now and both times he wasn't there. I guess that blows that everyday gig lol. Actually the first time was my fault it was scheduled off and the second time he was scheduled but I guess he was sick??? It's only a 2 1/2 hr drive for me.
