Neil got start in the AMA's junior program at the Magic Castle and has made several magic related television appearances lately including his role as the host of the 2008 World Magic Awards. According to Paybill, "The annual event, according to press notes, "celebrates the lavish world of mystery and illusion by gathering the top magicians from all over the world for one star-studded spectacular night. Steve Dick is executive-producing the evening, which will be penned by David Regal. Producers are Neil Patrick Harris and Matt Patton."
