Johnny Aladdin is an American illusionist and hypnotist.
As a pro, he was further schooled in manipulation skills by the magician Tenkai.
Through Tenkai he met his first wife and stage partner Taki.
He toured extensively throughout the Far East with Taki, then also with his second wife and assistant Lani. He also frequently performed in Las Vegas and at the Magic Castle.
His act was a slick combination of magical illusions and stage hypnotism routines. He was one of the first to use the shirt-pulling gag, the comedy bit where he whips the shirt off the back of a member of the audience- without removing the man's jacket first.
With his movie star good looks, he was a natural to appear in a number of television shows in the late 1960's and early 1970's including Ironside and Dragnet 1967.
