Dynamo is the most talked about magician of a generation and his no frills, street style magic, has become a global phenomenon. He's turned the world of magic on it's head, amazing people across the planet from the streets of Harlem to the Cannes Film Festival. He has helped redefine the genre, inspiring countless young magicians with his blend of visual magic, card dexterity and ability to astound the most sceptical of audiences.
Since it's inception in 2011, his hit TV show 'Magician Impossible' has enthralled over 400 million viewers across 180 territories winning a cluster of awards. His critically acclaimed live tour 'Seeing is Believing' quickly erupted from a ten date run into a year long tour. Selling over 600,000 tickets and filling arena's across the UK and Australia, he is the first magician in history to headline the world famous O2 in London.
This, coupled with numerous high profile brand deals (including Fiat and Pepsi) a Sunday Times best selling autobiography and a plethora of merchandise products, have also made him one of the most bankable magicians in the world. He recently featured as the only non-American in Forbes magazines 'top 5 magicians' list. A far cry from his humble roots as the son of a local Bradford hairdresser.
But it’s Dynamo's contribution to magic that is his most compelling achievement to date. A recipient of the 'Magician of The Year' award from the Academy of Magical Arts (often referred to as the 'Oscars of Magic'), he has redefined the shape of modern magic for the millennial generation. Much like David Blaine in the late 90s and David Copperfield in the 1980s.
The autobiographical nature of his shows coupled with incredible close up magic and a Banksy-esque approach to large scale illusion (the big stunts are never pre-publicised) have allowed him to connect with young people and reenergise the genre in a way not seen for a generation. With over 8 million fans across social media and over a billion online views laying testament to this impact, he has quickly secured himself as the most followed magician in the world. He has shared his insights at the Cannes Lions festival, Ad week and alongside Facebook's European VP Nicola Mendelsohn.
It is this impact that has helped Dynamo transcend the world of magic to become a bonafide pop culture icon with giants from the worlds of music, film and sport enthralled by his performances. Brad Pitt made a surprise visit to watch his live show with his kids as did fashion icon Kate Moss and artist Damien Hirst. Will Smith called Dynamo's performance "Absolutely astonishing" and Cristiano Ronaldo and Jay-Z have both hired him to perform at private functions.
But despite his undeniable success and ever expanding trophy cabinet, Dynamo remains a humble student of the magical arts, spending most of his time in isolation, honing the skills and ideas necessary to amaze and enthral his audiences. "I honestly believe people need magic in their lives as it brings a sense of hope and wonder that is often lost in the day to day" he said in a recent interview.
Along with David Copperfield, Penn & Teller and Derren Brown, Dynamo is one of the biggest and most in-demand names in magic, globally, and the ideal WOW factor for your next event, whether that’s a private party or a grand corporate affair.
Booking Dynamo For Close Up Magic
Close-up magic is perfect for small and intimate events up to 250 guests — and dynamo’s even been booked to perform at a private dinner for just two people. Similar to his award-winning television shows, when appearing at corporate events and private parties Dynamo’s style is to perform intimate close-up magic, right before your eyes. He will walk amongst your guests and perform to groups as they gather around. There is nothing that will create quite the same buzz as witnessing jaw-dropping magic performed up close and personal, by the world’s most talked-about magician.
Dynamo’s performance style is perfect for a drinks or canapés reception and, audience numbers permitting, can be performed at any function where guests are standing and mingling around. Depending on the format of the event and number of guests, Dynamo will typically perform between 60 and 90 minutes of close-up magic at your party.
Booking Dynamo’s Stage Show
If you’re planning a large scale event and expecting a lot of guests then Dynamo performing walk-around magic may not be suitable, or you may simply want to WOW your audience with the impact of Dynamo’s live stage show. The duration of this is up to 30 minutes and ideally suited to a multitude of venues and stages.
Dynamo live on stage is a bespoke show featuring routines taken from his world arena tours but designed specifically for corporate and private events. You’ll need to provide a full stage set-up with a professional sound and lighting appropriate to the room, raised staging with backstage area and wing space.
