Taylor Martin


I am a professional magician and performer, having studied the world’s oldest documented performing art form for over a half a century. I am the producer of one of the best monthly magic revues in America, Indy Magic Monthly @ Theatre On The Square. I am also a historical magician known as Rodney The Younger and perform as him at museums and re-enactments all over the U.S. and Canada. I have been on the cover of a major magic magazine, M.U.M., the cover of NUVO 3 times, and in People magazine.

About My Work:

I can do magic shows from 7 to 60 minutes. My company is “Magic Taylor’d For You!, LLC” and I also consult on other people’s shows. I currently am the director for “The Action Brothers” of Louisville and have revitalized their act into a successful show. I perform at such historical shows as “The Feast Of The Hunter’s Moon” in W. Lafayette, “Mississinewa 1812” in Marion, IN, and in 2015 I will be performing my 26th Season at Somerset, Pa and “Mountain Craft Days.” https://www.facebook.com/TaylorHMartin

I’ve lectured at Clowes Hall on the history of magic before the Masters Of Illusion show.

I sing like a chipmunk and raise cucumbers for my own pickles.

I’m also known as “Andrea Merlyn, Queen of Magic.” The title was given to me by Penn Jillette of Penn and Teller.
