Dean Dill is known for his magic creations, including the famous Dean's Box and a plethora of devastating close up routines with an emphasis on coin tricks. Many magicians will remember him from his appearance on the Tonight Show and his marvelous technical skill. Not as many know though that he was actually Johnny Carson's magic teacher during the 1980's.

Many others have fond memories of hanging out at his barber shop, Dean's Shoppe in Glendale. Not as many know that one of Dean's first customers was the man often referred to as the father of close-up magic, Dai Vernon.
