“There is magic.
People just think too much.
Look around less, imagine more, and the magic will happen”
– James Karp
As one of Australia’s leading professional magicians in Sydney, James has performed over 3000 magic shows for private engagements and performs 150 magic and cabaret shows a year at The Magicians Cabaret (established in 2010) - one of which is the acclaimed 'La Fortuna', written and produced by James and voted as one of the best three things to do in Sydney by US Celebrity Magazine, 'Cliche'.
Having also performed the effects: changing a girl into a tiger, sawing a woman in half, levitating, making four girls appear from a suitcase, cutting a girl into four pieces and making a car appear, James is an accomplished Illusionist.
He is experienced, proven and has combined his love of magic with theatre brilliantly.
Beyond magic, James’ creativity and know-how of the performing arts has also involved producing, directing and consulting for and to Australian actors, authors, motivational speakers, events for global brands, opening ceremonies, pop music videos, festivals, radio and television. He also has spoken on 'how magicians fool the human mind' at the University of Sydney and presented to professors from the University of Chicago who visited his museum of magic with thirty students as part of their cultural studies.
