If you haven’t yet seen the newest addition to “TV’s Magic Stars,” well, get over there before the opportunity disappears.
At the age of 28, headliner Danny Cole has already made a significant mark in the world of magic. He was twice voted “Stage Magician of the Year” by the membership of the Magic Castle in Hollywood, he was a guest performer on Lance Burton’s second network special, and he has been a featured performer in Gala shows and at Variety Theaters around the globe.
He joins Jonathan Neal Brown, Joel Ward & Morgan and Christopher Hart. , whose grand Illusion, spectacular magic, impressive sleight-of-hand and comedy asides make up “TV’s Magic Stars” show inside the Golden Cabaret at the Horizon Casino Resort.
The show features four remarkable headliners who have amazed TV audiences for years on NBC, CBS, ABC, and Fox. From their numerous appearances on The Tonight Show, to starring roles in specials, and major motion pictures, you can’t help but recognize the talent featured on stage.
Taking the starring role is Brown, who, along with his assistant Liane, starred in the CBS show, “The World’s Greatest Magicians.” Along with his numerous performances on NBC’s The Tonight Show, Brown has received ten consecutive nominations and has been twice voted “Stage Magician Of The Year”

Christopher Hart is said to have the most famous right hand in Hollywood. His hand has appeared as “Thing”, the enchanting disembodied hand in three Addams Family movies The Addams Family, Addams Family Values, and Addams Family Reunion.
