MAGICIAN GLEN GHIRARDI
Address: P.O. Box 123, Morgan City, LA 70381
My name is Glen Ghirardi, a professional magician since 1966. I am the recipient
of numerous awards for my stage act including international accolades.
I have performed throughout the United States for conventions, television,
corporate events, schools, libraries, birthday parties, and Avondale Shipyard
in New Orleans with over 21,000 people in attendance. I am a member of the Eddie
Adams Society of American Magicians Assembly #36, Earle Christenberry Ring 27,
Pete Klinepeter Ring 178, and founder of the Glen Ghirardi International
Brotherhood of Magicians Ring 214.
In 1976 I was the recipient of the prestigious "Originality Award", given at the
International Brotherhood of Magicians Convention in Evansville, Indiana. In order to
qualify for this award, a trick must be original and must be performed before a panel of judges.
If there are no tricks that merit this award, it is not given out. There had been no
recipient of the award for four consecutive years prior to my winning it. My trick is
known as "The Ghirardi Multiplying Canes to Lit Candle". I have several of my original tricks
printed internationally in books and magazines.

1970 Southeastern Association of Magicians in Baton Rouge, Louisiana
