Current WINNER of Penn & Teller’s FOOL US brings his all NEW Intimate Illusions to the Four Seasons Westlake for only one night.

On Sept 16th, Ivan appeared on the CW’s Penn & Teller’s Fool Us Season Finale and fooled the pants off veteran Las Vegas magicians Penn & Teller and was declared the winner.

Currently on a national tour, this stop here at our beautiful Four Seasons will included the amazing illusion that FOOLED Penn & Teller, as well as, incredible coincidences, psychological illusions, and spectacular brain games all wrapped around spellbinding story-telling. And don’t forget the musical score by Celine Dion’s main star cellist Irina Chirkova. You’ll witness Amodei manipulate time, alter someone’s fate and even discover a spectator’s destiny – might it be you?

“Absolutely gorgeous all the way through.” Penn & Teller

“Spectacular” by BroadwayWorld

One word review: Aaaaaa-mazing Want details? Read on.. First off, I am a big fan of magic. I've been to many magic shows and have been to the Magic Castle over a dozen times. After each show, I would try to figure out how the magic was done and most of the time I could figure it out. This is... More

I have seen Ivan's performance quite a few times and every time he has been outstanding with his perfectionism to truly make you perplexed through his humor, stories, and enlightening disposition. This has been the perfect gift for me to give to many of my friends, family and my kids absolutely were entertained. I look forward to seeing him again... More

My husband and I throughly enjoyed the show. It was so entertaining and Ivan performed amazing magic. I have no idea how he does it! The environment for the show was wonderful as well...small, intimate and personal. Would absolutely recommend attending! Ivan's message of "quality over quantity" in life was also very inspiring.

Last night I went with friends to see the AMAZING Ivan Amodei at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. His illusions are mindblowing! We kept saying "NO WAY" over and over again. He is adorable and very funny. Such a fun way to spend an evening. Very very well done show! I highly recommend for any age.

I saw Illusionist Ivan Amodei in Atlanta and the show was outstanding. I bought my girlfriend and contacted Ivan via FB to see if he could help me in proposing to her during the show. I meet with Ivan before hand and he worked out an awesome illusion . I don't want to spoil it for you by telling that... More

We recently saw Ivan's show in Chicago and till date it was one of the best shows ever...( not to mention we have seen some of the best). His involvement of the audience and his overall demeanor need to be complemented too but what completely left us awestruck was of course his tricks which were completely magical and mind blowing....definitely...

Ivan did spectacular audience participation illusions. Mind blowing how he brought the details of the crowd into his show. Do not miss him if you are in L.A. or he tours near you.

We just saw this show in Boston and were very underwhelmed. I took my 2 college age daughters who both saw an illusionist at their colleges, and loved them, so I thought I will treat them to a "real" illusionist. Let me say that while he is very endearing and funny - his tricks just either don't work or were... More

We just saw this show in Richardson TX. We were underwhelmed. We had never seen a live Magic show and where very excited about going. This show was very poor. It was hard to figure out where the illusions where. Ivan's slight of hand was really bad. Every trick was seen before it happened. Not sure if he was trying... More

Staying in Beverly Hills

Neighborhood Profile
Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.
