Matt Sigler is one of six prestidigitators currently employed at the Cuckoo’s Nest in the South Side, who are all excellent magicians and teachers and are very knowledgeable about the inventory in the shop.
Tom Peiritsh, who owns and runs The Cuckoo’s Nest along with his wife Linda, also performs magic shows and gives lessons at the shop.
Tom Peiritsh and his wife Linda have been serving up magic in the South Side for over 20 years. They started over 3 decades ago in different locations, such as Carrick, Brentwood, and Mt. Oliver before finding a permanent home in the quirky and unusual South Side of Pittsburgh.
As one of the only purveyors of magic in Pittsburgh, The Cuckoo’s Nest does business with people from all over, supplying magical fare to people from every walk of life, whether professional or hobbyist.
Open seven days a week, The Cuckoo’s Nest is the perfect place to discover your love for magic, whether you are a resident of Pittsburgh, or one of the many out of town customers that count on The Cuckoo’s Nest for their magic trick fix.
The store caters to people from out of town and its central location offers easy access no matter where people are coming from. Linda says, “We’re not close to anyone, but everyone.”
In addition to location, the store is also advertised in magazines, as well as on the Web, where Tom and Linda do an extensive amount of business through mail order.
The store itself is packed with merchandise, everything from simple magic tricks and gags, like card tricks and lock picking kits, to more advanced magic for professionals and advanced hobbyists, to clown make-up and wigs.
The Cuckoo’s Nest also carries an impressive 1500 DVD’s and books, which are housed in a separate room in the store. Linda says, “We’re known for having a lot of inventory,” and she’s not kidding!
Everyone in The Cuckoo’s Nest is friendly and excited to impart their knowledge of magic. “Whenever people come in, they always see a trick” Linda says.
The store has even had its share of celebrity patrons, including well-known magician Harry Anderson, and the famous comedian, Johnny Carson.
