Nicholas J. Johnson: Melbourne magician, author and entertainer
The Melbourne magician who’ll steal the show
My name is Nicholas J. Johnson and I can do the impossible.
I make audiences gasp in disbelief, double over in laughter and discover just how easy it is to be deceived.
How? I’m a magician, a comedian, an author and an educator.
Working with a crack team of magicians, scientists, fraud experts and former con artists, my shows and presentations are engaging, enlightening and downright amazing.
Some magicians want to fool their audiences, I want to turn mine into walking B.S. detectors.
After two decades entertaining and educating audiences, I’ve realised that there’s a ton we can learn about persuasion, deception and influence from the world of the professional swindler.
That’s why they call me the “Honest Con Man”. I use my skills for good, not evil.
You can trust me with your event…just not with a deck cards.Learn More
