Considered to be one of the world's most talented magicians, David Williamson knows the secret of capturing the imagination of any audience. A born showman and an unusually accomplished sleight of hand artist, David dazzles audiences with a unique and delightful brand of entertainment, blending heart-stopping magic with sidesplitting hilarity.

David's life in magic has spanned over four decades. His wide ranging professional career has taken him from humble beginnings working children's birthday parties to table hopping at restaurants to cruise ships, theaters, television, casinos, and corporate events around the world. All along the way he has striven to honor the memories of his heroes and mentors in magic that influenced him during his formative years. Men like Jay Marshall, Karrell Fox, Al Goshman, Del Ray and Dai Vernon just to name a few.

David has been featured on ABC's, Champions of Magic, where he appeared with Princess Stephanie as he performed his miracles at different locations in and around Monaco. David has also co-starred in several top-rated prime-time network specials including CBS' Magicians' Favorite Magicians, NBC's Houdini: Unlocking His Mysteries, and NBC's World's Greatest Magic III. He can be seen this season on Masters Of Illusion. David is a popular international television act as well with TV appearances in Spain, Portugal, Germany, Finland, Japan, France and China where he recently co-hosted BTV's Chinese New Year's Gala viewed by hundreds of millions of people.

In 1981 David won first place in the International Brotherhood of Magicians' sleight of hand competition. That year he also became the first ever recipient of the prestigious Gold Cups Award of Excellence in close-up magic. David was voted "Close Up Magician of the Year" two years in a row by his peers at Hollywood's renowned Magic Castle. He was also twice awarded the "Magic Castle Lecturer of the Year" and the "Magic Castle Parlor Magician of the Year". David has been invited to perform and lecture at five FISM conventions where he never fails to make a splash while making new friends in the world of magic. He was voted "Most Wanted Magician" by his peers at the 2003 FISM convention in Den Haag.

As host of the United Kingdom's acclaimed television series The Magic Comedy Strip, David's irresistible mix of humor and skill helped make it one of the highest rated shows in the country. He has created illusions for and performed in several commercials and has developed TV shows for Walt Disney Productions and ABC, as well as consulting for illusionists David Copperfield's and David Blaine's TV specials. Most recently, David appeared on Masters Of Illusion and PAX TV's World Magic Awards special where he was awarded comedy magician of the year.
