Andy's History and Experience:
Ernest Andrew Amos-Jackson is a native of Santa Cruz, California. He studied magic at a very early age, showing various tricks to his family and friends. He soon began designing and constructing his own tricks and props and performed complete shows while known as "The Great Whodunit". He and a close neighbor friend invented the world's first Sidewalk Magic Show, similar to a lemonade stand, in which drivers and pedestrians would stop by and pay to see a few tricks.
He further honed his skills by reading books by the master magicians and watching magic videos. In college, he studied theatrical arts and showmanship. In 2001, he began a professional magic career, first performing for childrens' parties, then entertaining all age groups.
Today, Andy "ZAP!" Jackson performs regularly for your special parties and events. Ernest is Vice President of The Coastal Magicians Club and member of The Society of American Magicians.
