Sisterhood’s 2nd Annual Evening at Hermosa Beach Comedy & Magic Club
Wednesday April 3rd will be Temple Beth El San Pedro Sisterhood’s second annual night out at the Hermosa Beach Comedy & Magic Club. The headliner is Derek Hughes, a comic magician in high demand. He’s appeared on America’s Got Talent and performs regularly at the Magic Castle and HBO’s Comedy Arts Festival, to name just a few. As always, there will be other comics warming up the crowd before his appearance. Doors open at 6:30 pm, show starts at 8:00 pm. You are welcome to come early to have dinner and then enjoy the show. Each guest is asked to purchase two menu items minimum (food or drink). Anyone over 18 is welcome to participate, including friends and family who are not members.
From the Comedy & Magic Club:
“Derek Hughes is a magician who has created original deceptions for MTV’s Room 401, Justin Willman’s YouTube series Magic Meltdown, and Michael Carbonaro’s hilarious appearances as the Magic Clerk on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He was featured as a celebrity magic coach on the VH1 reality series Celebracadabra and appeared on Comedy Central’s Gong Show. However, collaborating on and performing magic for television isn’t his calling card; his primary love is live appearance. He believes magic, in its purest form, is a live performance experience and that no camera can truly capture and transmit the magical moment of wonder. He performs regularly at the Magic Castle in Hollywood, California, where he was recently nominated for Parlor Magician of the Year. From being the only magician ever invited to perform at HBO’s prestigious Comedy Arts Festival, to filling in for the legendary Mac King at Harrah’s in Las Vegas, Derek is truly a unique presence in the art of conjuring. His wry sense of humor and mind-blowing magic have made him one of the most sought after entertainers across the county.
As an actor, Derek was “Logan,” opposite Jaleel White, in the Paramount situation comedy Grown Ups. In the American remake of the British hit comedy series, As If, he played “Jamie.” He appeared in Adam Sandler’s feature film, Mr. Deeds, and has guest starred in the Warner Brothers series, Angel and Nikki, as well as in the CBS hit drama, CSI: NY. Derek led a phenomenal cast, including Rance Howard, Richard Riehle, and Christa Campbell, in the independent feature film, Audie and the Wolf, produced by Brooklyn Reptyle Films. This spring he can be seen in an episode of Tosh.O.”
