    The Daredevil, Jonathan Goodwin  

    British born Daredevil and Escape Artist Jonathan is widely considered one of the most creative, skilled, and frankly crazy stunt performers in the world; and has been described as “The world’s greatest theatrical daredevil.” Goodwin has been hanged, buried alive, hung by his toes from helicopters, burned at the stake, attacked by sharks, and bitten by rattlesnakes, dodged arrows and climbed under moving cars.

     

    The Mentalist, Chris Cox

    He’s a multi-award winning “mind reader who can't read minds” and the star of the BBC’s Chris Cox’s Mind Boggling Magic & Killer Magic. He’s performed in three London West End seasons, a sell-out run at Sydney Opera House and has been seen live by over 750,000 people. The UK’s Guardian Newspaper say he is “one of the most exciting entertainers in Britain.” Chris is far too modest to mention it, though.

     

    The Manipulator, Hyun Joon Kim 

    Hailing from Korea, Hyun Joon Kim is regarded as one of the most masterful sleights of hand artists in the world. He has mastered the art of manipulation with extreme discipline and highly skilled techniques that leave both audiences and fellow magicians alike in awe.
