Rob Zabrecky

About this Artist

“Rob Zabrecky is one of LA’s most interesting natives.”

—LA Weekly

There’s simply no other entertainer like Rob Zabrecky. Through a wide range of artistic work that spans acting, writing, magic, and music, Rob Zabrecky has established himself globally as an original entertainer.

In film, he’s best known for his roles in A Ghost Story, Lost River, and Decay. In television, he’s appeared in guest and co-star roles in Lady Dynamite, GLOW, Angie Tribeca, Comedy Bang! Bang! the CBS biopic series, Strange Angel, based on the life of rocket scientist Jack Parsons, and many others.

He is the author of the acclaimed memoir, Strange Cures (Rothco Press), which chronicles his story of self-discovery, success, failure, and reinvention amidst the Los Angeles landscape during the 70s-90s. The LA Times praised the book as, “A punk poem to a forgotten Los Angeles,” and musician Jane Wiedlin of the Go-Go’s dubbed it, “A 1980s San Fernando Valley Time Machine.”

As a magician, he has invented a magical world through a series of strange and beautiful effects which he combines with remarkable timing and theatrical edifice. His absurdist and deadpan humor has delighted audiences from Tokyo to New York City. Recognized for his efforts, he has received six awards by the Academy of Magical Arts at the Magic Castle.

Zabrecky's career began as a musician while being the singer-songwriter and bassist for the Los Angeles group Possum Dixon, who released three albums on Interscope Records during the 1990s.
