Stan Allen

Stan Allen grew up in Southern California, where he was a member of a unique magic club for teens, the Long Beach Mystics. For the better part of the ’70s and ’80s, he was a full-time comedy magician, working night clubs and cruise ships. For eight years, he was an exclusive entertainer for Princess Cruises, performing magic at sea and on land.

In 1985, Stan “settled down” to start a family and Inside Magic, an eight-page monthly newsletter that quickly gained an international following. Six years later, that little newsletter morphed into the full-color, glossy MAGIC Magazine. The monthly periodical grew from 48 pages to 132, and from 1,200 readers to over 10,000 at its peak. In the 2005 edition, Guinness World Records recognized MAGIC as the world’s largest-selling magazine for magicians.

In 2001, Stan brought the pages of the magazine to life by producing the first MAGIC Live! This unconventional convention is the largest magic gathering in North America and regularly sells out.

Now, after 25 years and 301 issues, Stan is retiring MAGIC Magazine. He will continue to produce MAGIC Live, the next one being August 13-16, 2017 in Las Vegas.
