About The Great Omar Comedy Magician in Los Angeles
For the past 20 years, comedy magician Omar Covarrubias has delighted Los Angeles audiences with Magic Shows. At 19, his fascination with the art of magic compelled him to perform on the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica. As a street performer, the magician learned to engage people from all walks of life.
Over the years, Covarrubias appeared at comedy clubs, private parties, and performed in open-air forums such as the Las Vegas Strip. His transition from street performing to the L.A. comedy circuit was encouraged by Rudy Moreno, the “Godfather” of Latin comedy. Soon after Omar made his first appearances at the Ice House, Hollywood Laugh Factory & the House of Blues.
The magician calls forth constant audience participation by incorporating vaudevillian comedy & musical bits into his act. He often brings the crowd in on his jokes, only to surprise them moments later. His warmth & charisma puts spectators at ease & expectations are increasingly surpassed as the show unfolds.
