About The Pendragons
These internationally known illusionists are the most groundbreaking magical couple in the world. They have been performing together for over 27 years, stunning audiences that have included the President of the United States, the Queen of England, the Prince of Wales and the Royal Family of Monaco with their incredible illusions. Recently Jonathan and Charlotte Pendragon were included in the 2005, 50th Anniversary edition of the Guinness Book of World Records for their split-second illusion, Metamorphosis. The Guinness entry reads: The Pendragons perform the fastest transformation illusion in the world. “They do it so fast, they would have fooled Houdini,” states The Times, London. Jonathan Pendragon is one of only five contemporary performers named in 100 Most Influential Magicians of All Time in Magic Magazine. Charlotte Pendragon is the most honored woman in the history of the art form. She was voted into England’s famed Inner Magic Circle; amazing because she is an American and no woman had ever received this honor in the 100 plus years of the organization. Charlotte was the first woman to receive “The Magician of the Year Award” from the famed Magic Castle. Together The Pendragons have won the prestigious award twice, a feat that only four other living magicians have accomplished. The Pendragons have entertained audiences in theaters and on television in over countries. They have starred in 14 prime time magic specials on NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, PBS, Disney, Showtime, The Family Channel, VH1, E Entertainment and on CNN’s Showbiz Today. They have made more international television appearances than any magician in history. On a recent edition of NBC’s World’s Greatest Magic, Jonathan and Charlotte closed the show by making 25 showgirls vanish on stage at Caesars Palace. They have made several appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. They played a prominent role in the three-hour-long PBS special, The Art of Magic. The Pendragons enjoy creating innovative ways to perform. For PBS television they performed with the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, presenting illusions to classical music. For Universal Studios they wrote, directed and starred in a special nighttime magical illusion spectacular, Illusions of the Night, which played to more than one million people. The special gained the reputation as Universal’s most successful live show ever. Jonathan constantly works on new illusions and is famous among his peers for being a consummate entertainer. David Copperfield stated on stage, “When the history of magic is written, Jonathan Pendragon will be remembered as one of its most creative performers.” An NBC Executive Producer, who has produced 14 magic specials for NBC and ABC, often has Jonathan assist in front of and behind the camera. In fact the executive stated, “If anyone can bring something original to magic, it’s Jonathan Pendragon.” Jonathan and Charlotte met at the University of California, Irvine. Jonathan graduated with a degree in theater and Charlotte in dance. They were married soon after and reside in Shell Beach, California. They are truly the world’s most magical couple.
