Becker was an American vaudeville comedy magician on the Chautauqua circuit in the 1920's.

He billed himself as "Becker", "The Man of Mystery", "Mystero" and "Becker and Spike".

Based out of the Chicago area, Becker performed mainly at schools and churches, with a two-hour program of "continuous and laughable novelties, rag pictures, shadowgraphy and illusions". He also included a segment on spiritualistic manifestations

Becker put a different twist to his comedy magic by using his dog as his assistant. From his brochure: "Nor would we forget his capable and clever assistant Spike. This little dog quickly works his way into the favor of the audience and wins his share of the applause. In a program carefully prepared to meet the approval of old and young, Becker and Spike fill the evening with mirth, mystification, and magic, to the delight of all."
