Whit "Pop" Haydn is an internationally renowned performer and six time winner of Hollywood's Magic Castle Performer of the year award. For those unfamiliar, the Magic Castle is the Carnegie Hall of Magic and to win a Performer of the Year award is the equivelent of winning the Academy Awards of Magic.

Mr. Haydn has been performing magic since his childhood and it is only in recent years that he has taken on the name and the steampunk character of Pop Haydn. His "Pop Haydn" persona is a contemporary of Tesla and Edison who, through experimentation with providing a western town with wireless energy, inadvertantly transported himself and the entire village to modern times.

When Pop walks on the stage you know you are in the presence of a true master of magic. He is also a master of comedy as his hilarious routine for Pop's Miracle Oil is a marvelous example.

In his younger days before becoming a career magician Pop was on the path to becoming a minister. While at an event at his seminary, one of the professors observed him performing and suggested that, perhaps Magic was his true calling.

Check out the interview with Pop and his lovly wife Nancy and then check him out on Facebook, Youtube, and follow him on Twitter. Don't forget to wish them a Happy International Steampunk Month!
