Fun Fact Friday! #162

If you have esteve martin magic shopver been to Disneyland, you may have noticed an interesting store on Main Street, called the Main Street Magic Shop. As the name suggests, you can find all sorts of products for aspiring magicians at this store.

But did you know that the Magic Shop used to employ a rather famous, and extra-funny, cast member? I’m talking about none other than Steve Martin!

His time there must have given him wonderful memories, because he often refers to his work at the Magic Shop. He appeared on the Johnny Carson show with his magic act, the Great Flydini, and helped host the Disneyland 50th Anniversary Celebration. Of course, he appeared with Donald Duck in front of the Magic Shop for some awesome, funny banter. The video is below. Start watching at 3:25 to really get the good stuff!

Need more evidence as to his connection with the Magic Shop? Steve Martin is also currently working on a movie, called Magic Camp.

Here is the plot description of the feature film, according to The Hollywood Reporter:

The story tells of a straight-laced banker who returns to Magic Camp, a camp he attended as a shy child. This time he is a counselor who makes it his mission to improve the lives of all the kids while keeping an eye on his ultimate prize, the top spot at the Golden Wand competition.

Sounds interesting!
