Harry Houdini died on Halloween night in 1926. It seems quite appropriate that the world's most famous magician should pass away on the year's most mysterious day. Even more intriguing, Houdini was 52 years old when he died, the exact number of playing cards in a deck. Further, he was born 26 years before the start of the new century and died 26 years into the next one- as if his "life's deck" had been deftly cut in half by Fate, the ultimate magician.
Lee Terbosic is an internationally touring magician, comedian, actor, daredevil and entertainer from Pittsburgh, PA who is proving that anything is possible. Lee is the co-star of Discovery Channel’s recent smash HOUDINI’S LAST SECRETS, a four-part TV docuseries that uncovers incredible secrets about Harry Houdini’s life, family, magic and science behind some of his biggest stunts and escapes. On November 6, 2016 Lee performed his biggest stunt to date with “Houdini100” a tribute to Harry Houdini's death defying upside down straight jacket escape in downtown Pittsburgh.
In this special LIMITED ENGAGEMENT event, Lee will lead audiences through an exploration of some of Houdini's most magical moments. The 75-minute performance, part lecture, part Q&A, part demo, and all magic- will leave you wondering if there was something more sinister afoot on the night of Houdini's passing 97 years ago.
Lee recently appeared on CBS Pittsburgh which you can watch HERE.
