Reviews of my magic shows in Sydney

“Australia’s foremost expert on scams and hustles”
– The Weekly Review

“Witty, clever and comical…with his insightful and helpful tips about not being conned. Sydney audiences are blown away by his unique magic shows.
– Herald Sun

“Aside from his con artistry skills, Johnson proves he’s also a damn good comedian. He’s warm and engaging, but at same time delightfully unpredictable. The moments in the show when he pulls the rug out from beneath you make for some of the funniest and most memorable.”
– Squirrel Comedy
