Adrian Ramos (c.1991-2010) appeared as "El Magnifico" on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and at the Magic Castle by age 9 (the youngest performer at the time to play the main stage.)
His father began taking his son to magic workshops when he was just 4 years old. By age 6, he was bringing Adrian to the Magic Castle, where he met Joe Garcia – his first professional teacher.
Ramos was gunned in a robbery attempt while walking home after dark from a music class at Fullerton College.
