Magician
Coming to
The Woods
Justin “Kredible” Willman, host of “Cupcake
Wars” on the Food Network, will perform his
comedy-and-magic routine at William Woods
University Nov. 6.
His performance, which is free and open to the
public, will be at 7:30 p.m. in Dulany Auditorium.
Willman, who has made appearances on such
shows as “Rachael Ray,” “The View” and Disney’s
“The Suite Life on Deck,” was recently voted
“College Entertainer of the Year” for the fourth
consecutive year by Campus Activities magazine.
After breaking both his arms in a bicycle accident,
12-year-old Justin began learning card tricks as
an alternative to physical therapy, and has been
performing and entertaining crowds ever since.
Willman attended Ladue Horton Watkins High
School in St. Louis, Mo., and is a 2002 graduate of
Emerson College in Boston.
USA Today says Willman is “Like a magician,
but cooler.”
