My name is Paul Lembo (The Amazing Lembo). Stage and Close-Up performances are my specialty. Collecting and restoring vintage magic in my fully equipped shop, and building effects and illusions from scratch is my love.
I was introduced to Magic in 1952, and would be on the doorstep of Martinka’s every Saturday just waiting for it to open. Its proprietor Al Flosso gave me my first lessons and advice; I was the youngest member of Harry Roz On Ring number 26 of the International Brotherhood of Magicians and was able to learn up close from the great Harry Blackstone Sr. and others of the great old-timers.
I have performed in Europe, on TV (many years ago when it was black and white) in nightclubs, and any place I could get an audience. I believe Magic is the universal language just like music, and it is at it’s best when entertaining and mystifying (not when it is being exposed).
I am a member of The Society of American Magicians, and various service organizations and love to correspond with other magicians and people that were involved in the Apollo Space Program. I forgot to mention I was coordinator of the Lunar Module ascent stage construction for Grumman Aircraft Corp. responsible for construction of all the Lunar Module Ascent stages that landed on the moon. It’s an experience that will never be matched.
Over the years I have performed professionally and now that I am retired, magic has become my full time profession and I love every minute of it. Welcome to my website and explore the wonders of Magic I have to offer.
I wish you luck in all your endeavors be they magic or otherwise and remember:
“PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT”
