As the star of NBC's Crossing Jordan, Disney's I'm in The Band, Major Crimes, The Big Bang Theory, Mike and Molly, Hot In Cleveland, Anger Management and over 200 hours of TV and film, Steve Valentine has carved out a unique place for himself in show business, constantly changing and morphing into a myriad of wild, quirky, funny, dangerous, and always unique characters. However, few know that Steve Valentine is internationally recognized as one of the greatest sleight-of-hand artists in the world, having received four coveted awards from the world-famous Magic Castle alone. He was named Close-up Magician of the Year two years in a row and most recently Lecturer of the Year. Steve has travelled the world, performing in over 25 different countries, and had the honor of entertaining our troops overseas. Pittsburgh audiences will surely recognize Steve as the scene stealing Conjurer in the Broadway production of The Illusionists Magic of the Holidays, which came to Heinz Hall in December 2019.

After years of honing his comedic chops on the stage and screen, Steve Valentine has finally merged his two loves - magic and acting - to create his autobiographical theater show, Life & Other Deceptions. Fusing his well known, wicked, and cheeky sense of humor with incredible magic and masterful storytelling, this hit one-man show takes you on a wild ride through Steve Valentine’s life, featuring fascinating stories, never before seen magic, and incredible sleight-of-hand. Part performance art and part intricate magic act, this show is hilarious, dramatic, touching, intimate, raunchy, and mind blowing.

Life & Other Deceptions was originally produced by James Baron at Two Roads Theatre in December of 2016, created and performed by Steve Valentine, with additional material by Chipper Lowell and Chris Philpott with stage direction by Chipper Lowell.
