Full of hilarious magic tricks, death-defying stunts and acts of breathtaking wonder, THE ILLUSIONISTS has shattered box office records worldwide and thrilled audiences of all ages with a mind-blowing spectacular showcase of the jaw-dropping talents of five incredible illusionists.
The Grand Illusionist, Darcy Oake
“TRULY QUITE AWESOME! There’s no denying THE ILLUSIONISTS does deliver the goods. The magic is a solid ten.” – NY1
When it comes to magic, Darcy is in a class of his own. From his home country of Canada to the Middle East, Australia, Europe, South Africa, US and the UK, where he appeared on Britain's God Talent and Simon Cowell declared " We are witnessing the birth of a star". Darcy has thrilled both TV viewers and live audiences with his slight-of- hand and renowned illusions.
Darcy has won the Pacific Rim Professional Stage Challenge and the coveted People’s Choice Gold Medal Award. He has headlined The Magic Castle in Hollywood, his own national tour of Canada and continues to captivate audiences from Las Vegas to New York, Europe, and Asia. This past year Darcy headlined 10 shows at the world famous Calgary Stampede in his home country of Canada, in front of audiences over 20,000 per night.
Taking the rich heritage of the magic culture, Darcy Oake puts a fresh, young and exciting twist on the profession to the delight of audiences worldwide.
The Trickster, Jeff Hobson
He’s the epitome of glamour and showmanship. Don’t be fooled by his innocent appearance; Jeff has audiences laughing long after the curtain goes down.
Because of his refreshing and clever mix of comedy and magic, he is one of today’s most in-demand magicians.
The Academy of Magical Arts (aka The Magic Castle in Hollywood, California) awarded Hobson with Stage Magician of the Year and he received the Best Comedy Magic award from the International Magic Awards Association. The World Magic Awards acknowledged his role as star and producer with Best Magic Review for the critically acclaimed Carnival of Wonders show.
The Manipulator, An Ha Lim

The Daredevil, Jonathan Goodwin
Widely considered one of the most creative, skilled and frankly crazy stunt performers in the world, Goodwin is an accomplished knife thrower, archer, escape artist, fakir, martial artist, free diver and free climber. Unlike the other performers in the show, Jonathan is not a magician or illusionist but he will leave the audience breathless with his death-defying stunts.
Goodwin has been hanged, buried alive, hung by his toes from helicopters, burned at the stake, attacked by sharks, and even sewn up inside a dead cow to name just a few of the terrifying and insane stunts his mother wishes he hadn’t tried. Jonathan has starred in numerous TV series including “One Way Out” for Discovery Channel and “Dangerman: The Incredible Mr Goodwin” for the BBC. As well as his own Specials, “Deathwish Live” “How Not To Become Sharkbait” and “The Seven Stupidest Things to Escape From” Jonathan has been featured on 60 minutes, and has been a guest on the Jonathan Ross Show, Jimmy Kimmel and Paul O’grady Live.
