Ben made his break on YouTube, performing tricks through Michael McIntyre’s car window and travelling to Hollywood to doorstep Quentin Tarantino. He’s since appeared on Live at The Palladium, starred in The Illusionists in the West End and hosted ITV’s Tricked. Ben has also held a live audience of sixty two nationalities transfixed – even in his virtual show, everyone takes part in the magic
Ben Hanlin has been performing on stages for over twenty years. After quitting his “proper job” to pursue a career as a full-time magician, he decided to launch a YouTube channel, which involved him performing magic to celebrities. This led to him being being offered a number of opportunities as a TV magician and presenter. He began on CBBC, then Discovery Channel’s Breaking Magic and his own magic/prank show, Tricked on ITV2, which was awarded Best Entertainment Show at the Broadcast Digital Awards.
As a live performer Ben has appeared in in London’s West End, in The Illusionists and ITVs Live at The Palladium. His one-man shows also received five stars at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Partly due to the initial effects of the pandemic, Ben has refocused his energies back to social media, and his magic has been watched by billions of people globally and gained him over two million followers online. He has also branched out into co-founding a digital marketing, based in the heart of Birmingham.
At events, Ben performs close up magic or larger stage shows and presents awards with his combination of warmth, charm and mind-boggling illusions.
