Keepin’ It Unreal

A regular presence on New York City’s variety scene, Tanya Solomon blends vaudevillian stage magic with offbeat comedy.

While most “comedy magic” parodies the corny magician stereotype, she performs genuinely surprising effects and brings out the comedy implicit in the magician-audience relationship. Her acts range from 3-minute variety show bits to her full-length solo show.

Solomon, one of magic’s very few female performers, is also known as a physical comedian and MC. She has toured with the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, performed magic in European festivals, been a cast member of Coney Island Sideshows by the Seashore, and she produces and hosts the monthly Force Majeure Vaudeville.
