About Dave Coulier:
is an American stand-up comedian, impressionist, television and voice actor, and television host. He became known in the late 1980s and the early 1990s for playing Joey Gladstone on the ABC sitcom Full House. In 1987, Coulier appeared on The Tonight Show, and landed several voice-over roles on the animated series, Muppet Babies. Most notably, he was cast as Joey Gladstone, Bob Saget's crazy best-friend-cum-comedian on the series Full House.

About Peter Wood:
Peter Wood wanted a magician at his fifth birthday party. His clever parents responded by giving him a magic kit. Not exactly what Peter had in mind, but it sparked an interest in magic.
Five years later, he “went pro” and printed up some business cards, naming his company Shazam Magic. The decade-old prestidigitator began offering shows at community events and birthday parties, although barely older than the “children” he was hired to entertain.
His family's well-equipped workshop allowed Peter to custom-build much of his show. What began as a matter of economy (magic tricks are expensive!) became an asset, as Peter's unique apparatus set him apart from other entertainers.
While serving time in middle school, Peter was asked to perform at a trade show, creating customized magic to convey a message. This led to his interest in corporate entertainment, and the power of magic as a communication tool.
Performing his way through college, Peter graduated in 2006 with a Technical Theatre degree from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Diploma in hand, he decided to become a self-employed, full-time entertainer (and as luck would have it, his employer never even asked to see that expensive piece of parchment).
Today, he entertains at private parties, festivals and corporate events. Top companies – including Frito-Lay, Toys R Us, AOL, Lockheed Martin and USA Today - rely on Peter's magical abilities, as do government organizations, such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the United States Marine Corps and the Naval Research Laboratory.
