Al Flosso

Al Flosso was a Vaudeville-era magician who perfected the Misers’ Dream. He was later featured on early TV shows such as ‘Toast of the Town’, ‘The Ed Sullivan Show’, ‘The Steve Allen Show’ and ‘Wonderama’, among many others.

In 1939 he took over the then called Hornmann Magic Company on 34th Street in New York City after death of Professor Ducrot. He renamed it to Martinka magic.

Joseph Dunninger was once quoted as saying, “If there is a better all round magician I have yet to discover him!”

Watch Al Flosso ‘The Coney Island Fakier’ perform.
