Zak Mirz is a first-generation American as his parents immigrated from Iran and Afghanistan. Unfortunately, when Zak was only one, his father was murdered. Growing up in Texas, Zak turned to magic as an escape from reality and he found it was something he could share. Today as a professional magician, Zak tours worldwide using storytelling and the art of magic to share wonder and awe with his audiences. Besides being a magic advisor to David Blaine’s special ‘The Magic Way,’ Zak FOOLED Penn and Teller on the hit TV show ‘Penn & Teller: Fool Us!’ and his first full-length magic show ‘ticket for one’ is now streaming on YouTube. Whether he is performing for families, adults, colleges, or high school students, Zak customizes his live shows to provide the best experience for each event. He shares pieces of his life, including how his family has lived the American dream despite struggles along the way, and the people and events that inspired who Zak is today. The greatest gift Zak could give to his audiences is to remind them of their childlike wonder and to see the world with curiosity. Photo by Matt Blum.
