Damien O’Brien – Famous Magician & Hypnotist | UK
From the Big Smoke steps out Damien O’Brien, the magic world’s gifted boy wonder and leader of the new school of street magicians. He’ll stun the guests at your corporate or private event with his incredible close-up magic.
Damien’s wizardry has no limits or boundaries, utilizing all types of magic from cards to coins, watches to fire, even mind control and levitations. A natural performer mixed with boyish charm, his magic leaves even the biggest skeptic in the room bewitched.
First introduced to magic at the age of 12 by a fellow magician , Damien picked up the craft after learning a few tricks. From there Damien took his unique skill set to the streets to perform for the unsuspecting public. Their reactions were unbelievable, sealing Damien’s fate as a professional magician. He says: “There’s no better buzz than pulling off an amazing illusion right under someone. To watch their childlike wonder, there’s no other word to describe it but… magical.”
Honing his skills as both a showman and entertainer, Damien began gigging in local venues, until 2005, when an impromptu performance outside a London night club kick-started a chain of events that would catapult this 25 year old into the big leagues.
Using his mystic arts and improvised style of magic, Damien managed to impress a certain club owner, so he would allow this talented young magician into his private party to wow his guest list of celebrities, reality TV stars and talent agents. Needless to say, Damien was a massive hit and was asked to become a regular fixture. This spurred a domino effect within the showbiz party circuit, where Damien had free reign to showcase his abilities to some of the world’s most influential and famous celebrities. Since then, Damien O’Brien has performed at some of most illustrious, star-studded events in the world.
He has Hey Presto’d 50 Cent, Jonathan Ross, Dizzee Rascal, Nelly, Ashley Cole, Ed Sheeran and many more into fans as well as appearing in The Sun,The Mirror, BBC Three, MTV, BBC 1, BBC 2, The Sunday Times, OK! and RWD Magazine in the last year.
Damien has recently started his greatest adventure in taking part in the 6 part series Killer Magic for BBC Three where 5 magicians will compete against each other to see who is the best and the loser will face a trick that has either killed or injured magicians in the past.
