We’ve another cracking lecture at The Magick Lounge this week. From Las Vegas: Kyle Marlett. Here he is in action:

Today, we’re told it’s hip to be square and Kyle has embraced the “nerd” label and made it a unique, personal hook that appeals to today’s modern audience. Hip to social media, digital content and authenticity, his persona is appealing, entertaining and aspirational. He has redefining what it means to be a “nerd” and creating a unique following of his own.

“Talented, off-beat and charismatic, Kyle Marlett performs mind-blowing illusions with singular flair. From close-up sleights-of-hand to elaborate new twists on classic illusions, Kyle delivers an endearing charm and infectious comedic deadpan whether on the stage, on the street or on camera.”

Kyle’s already appeared on The Tonight Show, Syfy’s Wizard Wars, and as a recurring performer on POP’s upcoming Don’t Blink. Whether performing one-on-one with celebrities, filming an impromptu viral video with the latest Vine star, performing for the camera or for a spontaneously-gathered crowd, Kyle commands audiences with poise and an up-for-anything confidence. He spent years honing his craft behind the scenes in collaboration with the world’s greatest illusionists and magic acts.

He has conceived, designed and implemented some of the most memorable illusions in Las Vegas, on Broadway’s highest-grossing magic show, on London’s West End, in films and on television. Recently, Kyle offered that peak creativity and trademark style in his one-man Las Vegas show where he performed dazzling new tricks and delivered never-seen-before illusions.

The relentless pursuit of astounding magic is his calling card, which means that we’re in for an exciting, entertaining and informative evening!
