Dick Cavett began doing magic shows for $35 a night under the tutelage of Eugene Gloye, before leaving for college. He attended the 1952 convention of the International Brotherhood of Magicians in St. Louis and won Best New Performer trophy. Around the same time, he met fellow magician Johnny Carson, eleven years his senior, who was doing a magic act at a church in Lincoln.

In 1960, he briefly revived his magic act while working as a typist and for a company that had him pose as a customer in department stores and review the service he received.
