David Malek is a professional magician and entertainer. He has performed magic all over the world for over twenty-five years on every continent except Antartica.
David is considered to be one of the top sleight-of-hand magicians in the world today. His skill is legendary amongst magicians on the highest levels of the craft. However, David considers himself more of an entertainer rather than just a magician. He believes there are many great magicians in the world but very few of them can entertain an audience.
David puts on presentations for law enforcement, casino personnel and celebrity clients. He works as a consultant in film and television productions as well as giving demonstrations and entertaining at trade shows, hospitality suites, and numerous corporate and private clients. David lives in Orange County, California.
David at the Magic Castle
David Malek is known and when performing is introduced as The King at the Magic Castle in Hollywood, California.
The Magic Castle is a private club for magicians and their guests. It is said to be the most exclusive private club in the world.
There are many magicians who are members of the Magic Castle and who do impromptu shows in various areas for their guests and friends. Most of these are amateur magicians who dabble in magic as a hobby. Some of them are excellent magicians.
David represents less than one percent of the membership. As a top professional he chooses his own dates and is booked and paid by the Castle and the Academy of Magical Arts to perform at the club.
David also represents an even smaller segment of the membership in that when he arrived at the Magic Castle he was given membership and was booked to perform without having to audition. Out of the over fifteen thousand members since the early 1960’s this honor has been bestowed on less than twenty magicians in the Magic Castle’s history.
