Have you seen this man?
Nicholas J. Johnson is one of Australia’s leading entertainers and corporate speakers.
He’s also a con artist.
Growing up in the circus, Nicholas began his career along side sideshow performers and fast talking carnival spruikers.
Along the way, he learnt how to cheat at cards, pickpocket, spin a tale and talk his way out of a tight spot.
At 20, he decided to use his skills for good instead of evil becoming Australia’s Honest Con Man using his talents to entertain and education rather than swindle.
Today, Nicholas is one of Australia’s most sought after entertainers and corporate speakers having worked with the Australian Federal Police, St George Banking, FBI, Crown Casino, Canberra Casino, Krispy Kreme, Telstra, Optus, Adobe, Foxtel, Southern Star, Toyota, Microsoft and many more.
He has demonstrated swindles on The 7pm Project, Today Tonight and A Current Affair and made countless appearances on Triple J, 2UE, 3AW, The Age and ABC Radio, including his popular Scam of the Week segment on ABC Statewide Drive.
Nicholas performs hundreds of shows each year for Australia’s largest companies and events providing both entertaining stage shows and educational speaking programs.
