|Born||New York City|
Dick Brooks has been a professional performer since leaving school. As a teenager he joined a Department of Parks magic club headed up by the official magician of New York City, Abe Hurwitz (Peter Pan the Magic Man), who was also the father of the soon to be famous Shari Lewis. When Hurwitz left the Peter Pan Magic Club, Brooks helped change the name F.A.M.E., which stood for Future American Magical Entertainers. Then six magicians from the Society of American Magicians, who at first did not allow youngsters to join, formed the Society of Young Magicians (S.Y.M.) for youngsters in 1984.
Brooks edited Hocus Pocus from 1978 to 1982
