Rob Zabrecky was born and raised in Burbank, California. From 1989 to 1999 he was the singer-songwriter and bassist for the Los Angeles group Possum Dixon.
The band, originally hailing from Silver Lake, released three albums during the 1990s.
During the mid-1990s, he stumbled into magic and has since become a performer and award-winning magician at the Magic Castle in Hollywood, California.
In the mid-2000s he began a career in acting and has since landed roles in films, major network television programs, and commercials.
After his music career ended Zabrecky has worked throughout the United States and Japan as a magician. In magic, he is best known for an aberrant magician character in which he combines irreverent dark humor, mentalism, and the artful use of elongated pauses during performances. Since 2002 he has been a regular performer at the Magic Castle.
In 2003 he formed the off-beat magic trio, The Unholy Three in the basement of that establishment by presenting a provocative Dada-esque combination of wizardry and off-beat humor. In 2011 and 2012 he was voted “Stage Magician of the Year” by the Academy of Magical Arts. In 2014 he was voted “Parlour Magician of the Year” by the Academy of Magical Arts.
He has also been the featured magician at annual magic conventions worldwide and appeared on the cover of magic-related journals and periodicals including Genii and the Mandala.
Was host of Who’s Hoo, an on-line interview talk show for members of the Academy Arts at the Magic Castle, which he co-created with his wife, Tommi Zabrecky. Since airing in 2008, Zabrecky interviewed over 85 Magic Castle luminaries and performing members including co-founder Milt Larsen.
In 2011, Magic Magazine described him as, “A unique persona, highly reminiscent of Norman Bates, with a bit of Rod Serling in the mix — a psycho from the Twilight Zone, doing magic.”
