Witness the Impossible


Magic shows are not just for children's parties. Going way beyond your typical card tricks and finding a coin behind your ear, you'll be mesmerised as the seemingly impossible becomes a reality before your very eyes.

The Illusionists premiere gig at the Sydney Opera House in Australia sold thirty-one thousand tickets and sales increased by another eleven thousand when they went to Mexico. This incredible act will very soon be coming to the UK, and on the 11th & 12th October, performing at the London Hammersmith Apollo. Standard tickets are between 37.50-45.

In a show that defies the laws of physics, The Illusionists will boggle, inspire, and get your heart pumping. With punks, mad scientists, and English gentlemen all joining forces, the seven master illusionists look like a very oddball group. But when it comes to magic, the kookier the better, right?

Danny Perry, the anti-conjurer, has performed at parties for celebrities like Johnny Depp, and with his knack for the macabre, you are left under no illusion why people used to be so afraid of witchcraft. On the other side of the spectrum, Mark Kalin is a gentleman with a bowler hat and cane. His sleight of hand may leave you wondering where you left your wallet.

Jeff Hobson is the guy you don't want to meet at a casino. He's a sly charmer with more than a few tricks up his sleeve. Following in the footsteps of his hero, Houdini, Andrew Basso, can escape from anything, be it a straightjacket, flaming car, water tank, or explosives.

Kevin James, is an inventor, comedian, and collector of strange things. Whether he's performing dangerous experiments or sawing you in half, he's sure to entertain.

Although enchanting, Jinger Leigh is far more than a magician's assistant. She is the Enchantress, a modern witch with wicked dance moves. Then last but not least, Philip Escoffey will read your mind with his psychic abilities.
