Last week on our Facebook and Twitter accounts, we confirmed that Roving Crows will be our headline band this new year’s eve, and this week we have even more exciting news! We can finally announce that part of our new years eve entertainment, will be a magician. So this week we decided to take a look at some of the most famous magicians of all time!
No white rabbits here!
The world renowned Harry Houdini was known for his jaw dropping escape acts and daring water challenges! He has inspired most of our favourite magicians today and continues to bewilder people with his magic tricks a century later!
Fun fact: Did you know that Houdini died on Halloween?! Coincidence?
Derren Brown’s work focuses more towards tricks on the human mind. Mind reading, hypnosis, mind control, you name it and Derren Brown can pull it off!
Fun fact: Derren actually performed here at Racks back in the day, he made a £5 lunch disappear (okay not really, but it was all pretty amazing)!
The most successful illusionist in history, David Copperfield, is best known for his storytelling and illusions! At the age of 12, he was welcomed into the Society of American Magicians, becoming the youngest person to get membership. He went onto becoming one of the highest paid celebrity in the world! And yet still keeps surprising us!
Fun fact: He owns a private resort consisting of eleven Bahamian islands, called ‘The Islands of Copperfield Bay’.
Penn and Teller
This popular duo are the best example of how to incorporate comedy into magic performances. They’ve been entertaining since the 70’s, which makes these two a past and present favourite of ours!
Fun fact: Penn attended and graduated Ringling Brothers Clown College in 1974.
Love him or hate him, David was one of this generation’s first celebrity street magicians. Known for pushing the boundaries of illusions and escape acts, David is following in Harry Houdini’s footsteps. We wonder what he will come up with next?!
Fun fact: While hanging in a glass box over London, someone actually flew a big mac up to taunt him as he was without food.
Kaleb Zebadi – At Racks This NYE
Zebadi is widely known for his exciting, close up magic tricks and he specialises in amazing card tricks, bewildering quick change and surprising fire tricks. This won’t be like anything you’ve seen before! So we are very excited to announce he will be with us this NEW YEAR’S EVE!
