Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey®

Alex & Asia

World Class Illusionist Alex Ramon summons over a decade of magic experience to bring an unexpected twist to the American circus as he joins the cast of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® presents Zing Zang Zoom. Starring as the “Magical Zingmaster,” Alex astounds audiences with his incredible mastery of illusion in this $15 million production.

Alex’s talent and dedication put him top of mind when producers Kenneth Feld and Nicole Feld imagined a magical circus- one in which an elephant disappears and a man turns into a tiger.

At age 23 Alex Ramon became the 2nd youngest Ringmaster in the 139 year history of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® and the very first magician to be the star of The Greatest Show on Earth®!
