Brad Zinn is one of the most sought after entertainers in his field. Brad's background in acting and comedy make his performances a cut above the average entertainer. Brad adds elements of storytelling, magic, impressions and music to make his act absolutely unique. After beginning his theatrical endeavors as a child actor, (winning several contests with his impressions) Brad turned professional in 1975. He pursued acting and magic careers simultaneously for the next ten years. However, the entertaining arts became all consuming and the acting career was all but eclipsed by his success in legerdemain.
Brad is now regularly engaged by theatres, hotels, major cruise lines, fundraising organizations, and corporate meeting planners across the United States as a comedian, impressionist, magician, and as a Master of Ceremonies. Recent engagements have taken him to England to appear at the world famous London Palladium, around the world on Holland America, Norwegian and Radisson Cruise Lines, and to headline the historic Fox Theatre in Visalia California.
Brad has performed alongside many celebrities including Dick Van Dyke, Shirley Jones, Cliff Robertson, Paul Rodriguez, Damon Wayans, Will Shriner, Richard Crenna, Justin Wilson (the Cajun Chef), Harry Anderson, and Lynda Carter, among others.
Brad Zinn is also recognized as a media consultant for advertisers, industrial accounts and other performers. His articles have been published in various trade periodicals and he is currently writing his first major book on the entertainment industry. A performing member of Hollywood's prestigious Magic Castle, Zinn also boasts appearances on the Las Vegas "strip" as well. His experience includes video production, event production, advertising, custom lyric writing and his voice may be recognized from the hundreds of radio and T.V. commercials he has recorded, or from the six films in which he has appeared. Brad also hosted "The New Variety Arts," a cable talk show, for two years which resulted in a full page spread in the Arizona Republic newspaper.
Zinn's accomplishments have been acknowledged in "Who's Who in Entertainment," "Who's Who in the World," and "International Men of Achievement." He is a member of Screen Actors Guild, American Federation of Radio and Television Artists, the International Brotherhood of Magicians (the exclusive 'Order of Merlin'), the Society of American Magicians (founded by Harry Houdini), the Hollywood Magic Castle, and many other professional organizations.
