'Devilishly clever' ★★★★ Scotsman

'Mind-blowing... supreme master of the vanishing act. He really is a must see. Don’t miss him.' ★★★★★ Advertiser

'Makes sceptics become believers' ★★★★★ Broadway Baby

'Ben Hart will have you believing in magic' ★★★★★ Glam Adelaide

'Utterly enchanting' ★★★★ Daily Mail

Ben Hart is a unique artist: a teller of tall tales, mad inventor and sleight-of-hand master.His performances are a dark, beautiful, baffling and wickedly funny treasure trove of impossible mysteries, visual alchemy, outrageous lies and brutal honesty. Magic shows just aren’t supposed to be this… real.

As a member of The Inner Magic Circle, Ben performs, writes and invents magic. Ben’s role as magic designer has seen him create special effects and impossible illusions for theatre, film and television. His clients include The Old Vic and The Royal Shakespeare Company.

Ben has starred in numerous UK and International TV series including his own BBC3 online series "Life Hacks Hoax" and was a star of 'Killer Magic' on BBC3 and the hit BBC One show "Now You See It" and has been seen live on "The One Show" on BBC One.

Ben stars in the hit west-end and international magic show "Impossible" which played at London's West End and toured to Singapore, Beirut, Dubai, and the Philippines.

In May, Ben auditioned on the UK’s largest-rated ITV show, Britain’s Got Talent. Ben transformed a piece of confetti into an egg, before cracking it into a glass, in front of the audience’s eyes. The trick gained him a standing ovation from the theatre audience mid way through his set, and he certainly worked his magic on the stunned Judges in his astonishing audition, which included teleporting a random audience member across the stage.

Simon Cowell was left dumbfounded, commenting simply: "That was unbelievable”.

Ben sailed through to the Finals, and came third with his incredible perfomance.
