Join us in the STU Ballroom for a night of comedy and variety as Justin Willman and Lindsay Benner showcase their talents.

There will be two showtimes (6PM and 9PM) with doors opening one hour prior. Please choose only one showtime to attend as seating is limited for each engagement. 

Justin Willman Bio:
Justin Willman is an American magician, actor, comedian, and TV personality. The Guardian dubbed him as “some kind of variety Voltron with a comic flair that marks him out as the leader of the pack”.

He’s a regular guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy FallonThe Ellen DeGeneres Show, and Chelsea Lately; and he hosts the showsCupcake Wars on the Food Network and Win,Lose or Draw - Disney Channel Game Show.

He also tours regularly with a magic/comedy live show that Time Out says, “has to be seen to be disbelieved.”

Lindsay Benner Bio:
Lindsay Benner is a virtuoso entertainer with a twinkle in her eye and a heart of gold. Since graduating with a BFA in acting, Lindsay worked professionally in regional theater in the San Francisco Bay Area until she left regional theater to work full time as a solo variety artist performing on the streets of San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf and at Busker festivals all over the world. Lindsay has performed in the US, New Zealand, Norway, England, Canada, Ireland, Australia and Japan.

Lindsay has become a favorite at the magic castle in Hollywood, being not only one of the few female artists to receive “performer of the week”, but also one of the only non Magicians to make it on that list.

In 2011, Lindsay premiered her hour long silent vaudeville show called “The Book of Love” at The Ashby Stage in Oakland presented by The Shotgun Players. She then took “The Book of Love” and showcased it to the College entertainment market across the US and in 2013, after two successful touring seasons, Lindsay won “Variety Artist of the year” from the Association for the Promotion of Campus Activities (APCA), a rare honor for a solo woman in that field. Inspired by classic vaudeville and golden-era comedy, she has spent her life working hard to perfect the art of making people happy.
