History of the Show
Les Arnold and his daughter Alex have showbiz running through their veins. They come by it naturally. The Arnold magic bloodline originates with Les’ grandfather, The Great Leon, a vaudeville headliner who is famous for creating the act “Fire and Water.” Les’ mother was a dancer in Vaudeville and performed in a 1930’s bicycle act, and his uncle Leon Leon, was a magician and sound engineer.
Les started performing magic when he was only 10 years old. While still in his teens, Les developed a love for building magic props and soon had enough illusions to perform a 30 minute show. He started dating and eventually married Charlee Ann who became his new assistant adding elegance to the show that quickly became booked at the Magic Castle, Resorts, Cruise Ships, Casinos, Colleges and various high profile events.
Together they had a daughter Alexandra, who by the age of three had sealed her fate as a fourth generation magician.
