Featured Artists and Guests
A master of subtle illusion and manipulation, Nicholas has appeared on season 14 of America’s Got Talent, Penn and Teller: Fool Us, as well as FOXtv’s Houdini & Doyle’s World of Wonders. He has been named the Canadian Champion of Magic by the Canadian Association of Magicians and is the 2018 recipient of the Allan Slaight Award for Canadian Rising Star.
Nicholas can best be described as a minimalist who has forgone fancy props and special effects, preferring to conjure an audience’s imagination by presenting magic and mind-reading in a way that is both entertaining and thought provoking.
