After reading Born Standing Up, Steve Martin's memoir about the beginning of his career, it's clear that many of the entertainers (including Martin) we consider to be legendary comics started out doing magic tricks. So what are the new comagicians up to these days? The floating ball? The dove? Card tricks? Find out as the Addison Improv, 4980 Belt Line Road, presents Ta Da: Comedy and Magic Night 8 p.m. Tuesday. For $15, check out strolling performers, con artists (as in "the art of the con") and stage-grade magicians. Call 972-404-8501 or visit improvclubs.com.
