I have a very special guest on the show today...I told you about him last week. I can't tell you how thrilled I am to have him sitting and chatting with me today. He's a man who has circled the entertainment globe a number of times. He has some great stories to share with us from over 50 years in the entertainment business as a comedy magician, actor, speaker, and variety entertainer. He's performed for and worked with such world-renown names such as David Bowie, Kenny Rogers, Steven Spielberg, and Orson Welles, just to name a few. Originally from London, he's entertained British Royalty, American Presidents, Business Legends and Hollywood Icons. In Las Vegas he's performed at Bally's, Caesar's Palace, Harrah's, and the Luxor and has been regular featured performer on most major cruise ship lines. In my opinion, this is a guy who has just done it all--he's had a wonderful career in the world of magic, comedy and entertainment. Ladies and gentlemen please welcome with me, Mr. Nick Lewin.
