Finalist in 2014 Britain’s Got Talent, entertaining performance artist and talented illusionist, Darcy Oake performs his logic-defying act live on The Colosseum on Thursday, May 17 for an ALL AGES show.
Over 200 million viewers tuned in to Britain’s Got Talent to witness the birth of a phenomenon: the unveiling of an electrifying new illusionist, Darcy Oake. From sleight of hand to death-defying escapades, this master magician grabbed the world’s attention, ushering in an exciting new era of an age-old art form.
Oake is a performance artist whose modern interpretation gratifies the hunger of audiences seeking spectacle and nail-biting feats of illusion. Inspired by classic sleight of hand techniques, Darcy transports the crowd to another dimension with exhilarating visuals and logic-defying exploits.
After being baffled by an accidental card trick his father – award-winning Canadian sportscaster Scott Oake – showed him at eight years old, Darcy delved into the craft. He soon became an international magic champion, at age 16 beating out seasoned professionals at various events and winning the coveted People’s Choice Gold Medal in Seattle, Washington. Even before he was legally old enough to enter nightclubs, Oake headlined at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, California.
Today, Oake proudly carries on the tradition of such classic illusionists, while adding his trademark grandeur and charm as a new generation of contemporary mysticism. He’s performed throughout Europe, from Paris to London, and across North America, from the heart of Times Square in New York City to the Las Vegas strip.
