At age 10, Fielding West was introduced to Magic by his grandfather who was an amateur magician. After high school, Fielding put himself through college, paying for his degree as a drummer in a band and doing magic shows for children. In 1973, while selling cars and going to graduate school at night in Tallahassee, he met an unknown comedy magician named Steve Martin. That’s Right, the Steve Martin, before he became famous. After seeing Steve perform, he knew that he wanted to be in show business for the rest of his life. The concept of a comedy act began. Three years later he moved to Jacksonville, and started his own Saturday morning children's show on local television called “Magic Gang”, and was the highest rated kids show in it's time slot for two years. Not being satisfied with entertaining only children, Fielding pursued a nightclub act.
A year and a half after leaving television, he put together a successful touring show called “The Amazing Fielding And Company”. The show included illusions and hypnosis, which, after two years led him to Las Vegas. There he met Liberace who helped Fielding get his first break by showcasing his act at the Sahara Hotel. Since then he has been working all over the world as a featured star in large production shows and as an opening act for major stars.
Fielding's career has now come full circle. He has appeared on a multitude of comedy specials and popular sitcoms. His talents go far beyond stage and screen. Fielding is also a successful comedy writer for other magicians and comedians. He is well-known in the corporate market as a fantastic performer. In a course he created, called “Stagecraft 101”, he manages speaking seminars for young performers which teach how to speak more effectively.
