Alaka-Sam - United States Magicians

Alaka-Sam

Sam is AlakaSam the Magician! AlakaSam started studying and practicing magic when he was 10 years old. He was an apprentice magician for five years at Howard’s House of Hocus Pocus in Buffalo, New York. He was the assistant to the shop’s owner at magic performances and demonstrated and sold magic tricks to customers at the shop. At Cornell University, Sam completed an epistemological study of magic and developed a magic course curriculum that he has since taught many times. AlakaSam has now been performing comedy magic and twisting balloon sculptures for over 40 years! He incorporates lots of audience participation and the volunteers are made to feel as if they helped accomplish the magic, so it is a very uplifting experience.
