Many fans have seen this morning’s guest, Justin Willman, as the host on the hugely popular show Cupcake Wars on Food Network, but many don’t realize that this entertaining host also does double duty as a comedy magician. Justin joined us on air this morning to tell us about his exciting new show, Magic Meltdown, happening tonight at Meltdown Comics’ Nerdist Theater.
Justin also gave us a behind the scenes look on the set of Cupcake Wars, where the drama is just about as real as it looks on TV! Recap our interview with Justin and get details on his magic show going on tonight!
If you’ve ever seen Cupcake Wars, you know how intense the cooking battle can get on the set of the show. While Justin tells us that the editing makes the drama a little more tense than it really is, he also notes that on the set there are “legit tears and legit trash talking.”
People also always ask Justin if he ever gets to try some of the bizarre, conceptual cupcakes created on the show, in which he replies, “Only when I want to. Sometimes they’re a little obscure. It’s amazing what they do; it’s wild.”
In addition to his TV hosting gigs, Justin has an extensive 10-year background as a comedian/magician performing his “alternative magic shows.”
Tonight, you can see Justin live as he amazes and entertains the audience with his comedic brand of mind-blowing illusions at Meltdown Comics’ Nerdist Theater. For tickets and details, visit meltcomics.com and see below:
