Those who know me are aware I adore a good stand-up routine and appreciate great magic as well. The Amazing Johnathan was a performer who married both in a manner that was often shocking, a bit gross, and always creative. I first saw his work on Comedy Central years ago and immediately loved it. His real name was John Edward Szeles, and I'm discussing him in the past tense as he has now passed after a long battle with a degenerative heart disease. It is a bummer and his family is in my thoughts. If you want to see some fantastic comedy and magic intertwined I highly encourage you to look up his stuff.
