Form and Style 

CONFESSIONS OF A MAGICIAN is a spellbinding and original hour long act guaranteed to intrigue and delight, delivered by an award winning magician.

This show is original in that it is not the standard linear exhibition of magic ‘tricks’, and uses original narrative plot and theatrical vignettes to showcase mysterious and amazing effects, while spectators learn more about the strange, and at time hilarious, world of magic and illusion.

Gobsmacking magic, audience participation, psychological ploys, music, laughter and amazement are all part of the show. This show was awarded a ‘Best Magic Weekly Award’ at Adelaide Fringe 2018, toured in 2019 and also presented (updated script) at the 2020 Perth Fringe World
