About The Wizards
50 YEARS AND COUNTING
The Harlem Wizards are celebrating 50 years of Worldwide Wizardry.
At a Wizards game fans see amazing basketball talent combined with hilarious comedy. The athleticism, tricks and fancy teamwork and ball-handling wizardry, plus wild dunks not even seen in NBA games engages and wows the most avid hoops fans. The comedy is for everybody. The Wizards look to push the envelope on fun, combining pre-planned comedic acts with spontaneous humor that fans of all ages will find laugh out -loud funny. The halftime show with hundreds of kids on the court, plus the postgame interaction is the cherry on top as the Wizards stay until every autograph is signed.
Often the Wizards are compared with the Globetrotters by people who have not taken in a Wizards show. Todd Davis, Wizards President said, “While the Globetrotters are quite well known and many consider them synonymous with show basketball they do not deliver the kind of connection, feeling, fun, community and excitement that the Wizards do. I have been around show basketball my whole life, my dad started the Wizards when I was four years old and the Wizard experience is unique in the world and want millions to have this awe-inspiring experience. Many fans have told us the Wizards show is beyond comparison. Davis harkened back to the old Avis tag line, we do try harder, but even more importantly is that you will laugh harder at a Wizards show.”
Started in 1962 by New York Sports promoter Howie Davis, and now celebrating 50 years of Wizardry, he envisioned a show and organization that would put a different spin on show basketball. Fifty years later the Wizards are an institution, creating awe-inspiring fundraiser events for schools and non-profits in 315 communities and cities in America this season alone. Over $1 million will be raised, while smiles and enthusiasm for the Wizards matchup vs teachers, coaches and community leaders will abound.
Whereas an NBA team’s success is measured in wins and losses, the Wizards’ victories lie in the millions of smiles they are responsible for and the millions of dollars raised for charitable organizations, schools, and foundations across the world. Since 1962, the Wizards have been making history with the happiness, fun, goodwill and excitement they bring.
