Sham’s most magical place to go in Los Angeles: The Magic Castle, where you have to know a magician to get in.

Sham’s favorite place to hike is Runyon CanyonBronson Canyon and the Bronson Caves.

Sham is an avid skate boarder as well! His favorite skate spot is Dragon Ditch in Bronson Canyon. He says it’s great for skating vert.

Sham’s favorite beach: Venice Beach.

We end the show on a hilarious note with Sham explaining that he has the same name as a militant terrorist ISIS fighter. When you Google his name you get that guy instead of him so ISIS is messing up his SEO. He has this to say about that: “Would you rather see some pop art or a guy’s head chopped off. I mean, I’m not taking head, I’m giving it.”
