Meet the magicians
Mike Tyler is the co-creator and co-producer of Showmen. As a performer, he’s sold out ticketed stage shows in over 300 cities around the world including Las Vegas, New York, Hong Kong, London and Edinburgh alongside fellow Showmen, Christopher Wayne. Mike is one of Australia’s favourite and most successful magicians and he’ll blow your mind with psychology, predictions, and mind reading known as ‘mentalism’. Over 50 million people have seen his TV performances on international networks CBS, NBC, ABC and FOX including America’s Got Talent and Entertainment Tonight.
Christopher Wayne is the comedy magician and host of the show, as well as the co-creator of Showmen. The first Australian magician to have his own TV series, Christopher has performed all around the world including a residency in Las Vegas, a run on London’s West End, and shows in New York alongside his real life best friend, Mike Tyler, who is also one of the Showmen. Seen most recently as a housemate on Big Brother, and a creator of many hit live productions, Christopher is one of Queensland’s best known producers, creators, and performers of live entertainment.
Apollo Jackson will make your heart skip a beat with death defying stunts, impossible magic, and just being so darn likeable! He’s the ultimate combination of extreme athlete, stuntman, escape artist, and musician. Many will recognise him from The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise, and Australia’s Got Talent. While it didn’t work out with Sophie Monk, his love of magic stuck around and Apollo is no stranger to the stage and screen (he was even stunt double for The Hulk in the MCU).
Sleight of hand has never looked (or sounded) so good as Josh Norbido! Branded as ‘Hot Magic Josh’ by the judges in the finals of ‘Australia’s Got Talent’, this beatboxing, hip hop dancing, street magician will BACKFLIP your senses with his fusion of magic, hip hop and athleticism. Performing across Australia, Pacific Islands, New Zealand and India, Josh is the perfect ingredient for Showmen.
Joel Fenton performs over 300 shows a year at street festivals, circuses, arena stadiums, theatres, and weddings. He regularly appears on cruise ships and television shows attempting ridiculous tricks and insane stunts that leave audiences on the edge of their seats. If you’re lucky enough to be in the front row at Showmen, please watch out for flying knives, axes and running chainsaws.
