Australia’s most innovative and notable illusionist Adam Mada is returning to Melbourne to perform his best trickeries yet at the Melbourne Magic Festival, announcing five evening shows at the Northcote Town Hall from July 4-7 and throwing in a matinee performance on July 7 to ensure even his youngest fans can get along to witness his mind-blowing show.
From exposing some of the world’s most elaborate heist-style scams in Channel 9 and BBC UK’s hit series The Real Hustle, to guest judging magic panels and conducting workshops for professional magicians around the world, it’s obvious this Sydney-based magician has all bases covered. Mada is also an Ambassador for the Starlight Children’s Foundation, working regularly as their official magic coach and celebrity author Tara Moss even based a character on Mada in her best-selling novel, Siren.
Mada found magic in his teenage years explaining, “like any shy teenage boy, I wanted something to impress people. Once I found magic, I quickly discovered I could entertain and impress people anywhere any time, even people who couldn’t speak English.”
After leaving his full time job in IT, Mada packed his bags and headed to Las Vegas and Venezuela to study the art of illusion and now boasts regular clientele ranging from Kerry Stokes to the Spanish Ambassador.
And for those who come along to see a show, Mada promises “a hilariously good time, some very strong visual effects, some jiggery pokery, audience participation and I mean the entire audience and definitely a few things people won’t have ever seen before!”
