Henry Doheny (also known as The Great Doheny) is a magician. He is a parody of the famous real-life illusionist, Harry Houdini.


  • Henry Doheny is a magician who Josh and Walter are huge fans of, and his catchphrase is "Doheny!" whenever he does a magic trick or makes an entrance. Josh, Megan, and Walter take huge interest in him, but Drake hates him with a burning passion. He states during the episode that he isn't famous at all anymore, and that nobody wants him, Doheny interrupts people to show different magic tricks to almost anybody, what kind of annoys people, especially Drake. He also has somewhat weird tricks, like turning someone's pants into transparent, making one cough up a playing card they chose before, putting a rabbit in a trash can, making someone bald, and even digesting a sandwich without actually eating it. Still, some of his magic is well-known, like making people and things disappear and the Box of Impalement after performing the Box of Impalement trick, he was supposedly dead. However, he reappeared living at his own funeral, becoming successful again. After becoming successful again, he goes on to perform magic in Las Vegas. As a parting gift, he gives Drake and Josh yo-yos and Megan a check for $50,000 because she suggested the trick in the first place, During the end credits, Walter asks Doheny to gets his hair back but Doheny leaves straight to Las Vegas as he tells Walter to buy a wig.
