Jonathan and Drew were both working in the film industry initially, with roles in acting, stuntman and even an assistant director.
The two of them also tried selling nylon-wrapped clothes hangers door to door. They were even hired as child clowns and performed in parades.
Jonathan then tried out magic after being inspired by some of the top magicians.
