Keeping 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 “Tanya Solomon: Truth Assassin”.

One of magic’s very few female performers, she also entertains with strolling magic at private and corporate events, and performs for kids as “Razzle Dazzle”.

Tanya 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, produced the Wonder Farm Cabaret in New Orleans, and she produces and hosts the monthly Force Majeure Vaudeville.
