KELLAR’S – A MODERN MAGIC & COMEDY CLUB – CELEBRATES THE MAN WHO DEFINED MAGIC, INSPIRED HOUDINI AND THE WIZARD OF OZ
ERIE, PA – Before Houdini, there was Kellar – a magician from Erie, Pennsylvania who defined magic so brilliantly that author Frank L. Baum based his immortal character “The Wizard of Oz” on him. Henrich “Harry” Kellar (1849-1922) has been forgotten by history – UNTIL NOW!
Kellar’s, A Modern Magic & Comedy Club, is an historical entertainment tourist attraction in Kellar’s hometown created by Bobby Borgia, noted international magician who is also from Erie, and Kristi Lewonas. Kellar’s story inspired Borgia to take up magic at age 6 and follow in his footsteps. This entertainment hotspot is a gift to Borgia’s hero. It not only pays tribute to Kellar but looks inside his life and illusions with memorabilia and genuine artifacts from Kellar’s career. The magic and comedy club is also a block away from the site of Kellar’s boyhood home.
Kellar had a major impact on American culture by:
- Being the first American magician to become an international star,
earning him the title of “Dean of American Magicians.”
- Performing extensively on five continents for over 40 years.
- Developing classic feats of magic such as the Vanishing Birdcage and Levitation.
- Befriending and mentoring Harry Houdini, who adopted his first name.
- Inspiring the character of the wizard in The Wizard of Oz
- The biggest names in Magic and Comedy performing live on stage, from TV shows like America’s Got Talent, Penn & Teller: Fool Us, The Tonight Show, and Last Comic Standing.
- More than 100 pieces of exclusive Kellar memorabilia, including posters, letters and props, from the Kellar estate (representative available for interview), much of it never before seen by the public.
- Signature cocktails featured in a bar/lounge with sleight-of-hand performers entertaining guests.
- Interactive illusions and magic experiences.
- Kellar’s Conjuring Kids Magic Camp, a hands-on summer camp where children and teens learn magic.
Harry Kellar set the standard for modern magic. Kellar’s sets the standard for modern magic and comedy clubs by not only featuring a unique and amazing entertainment experience but also by honoring the Dean of American magicians.
