About Michael Vincent
Not many magicians possess the magical combination of superlative sleight of hand and great theatrical presentation, and there can be no doubt about Michael Vincent’s claim to be one of the chosen few to possess these particular talents. Over the last thirty years, Michael has earned an enviable reputation as one of the the elite magicians and sleight of hand artists in the world.
Michael Vincent has been named Best Close-Up Magician three times by the UK’s Magic Circle, in three consecutive decades, in 1983 , 1991 , and 2003.
In 1993 he was crowned the International Magician of the Year.
His performances have featured at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, California, exclusive celebrity parties, international casinos, high end corporate events and on numerous television shows.
Two and a half years ago, Michael encountered a major setback when he lost his hearing. This is a dramatic event for a magician whose success revolved around his unique ability to communicate with his audience. However, in testament to his unconquerable drive and passion for his art, Michael further honed his ability to read his audience, tuning his senses to read the nuances of communication, body language and micro facial expressions, turning an obstacle in to an opportunity to improve.
In a career that continues with drive, passion and dedication, his stylish and sophisticated performances take sleight of hand magic to a new level of artistic and authentic self-expression. It is this simple philosophy which has defined Michael’s place in the history of magic.
