Mo Magic brings his live show to Hillcrest for the very first time.

South African magician extraordinaire Mo Magic brings his live show to Hillcrest for the very first time. 

The show features 70 minutes of amazing magic, mystifying mentalism (mind reading magic) and family-friendly comedy from a career spanning 16 years to date.

It's suitable for the entire family ages eight upwards and the matinee performance at Butler’s Restaurant is ideal for the school holidays.

The electronic engineer turned entertainer, resigned from his career as a project and customer manager in 2010, to pursue his passion for spreading joy and delight through the art of magic on a full time basis.

Since then he has featured regularly on TV, radio and stages internationally.

He is well known for his popular TV series on SABC3 titled “Magic with Mo”, which rose to being the second most watched South African show on the channel.

The magician will also use the show to introduce his new DVD, “Learn Magic with Mo Magic”, to Hillcrest audiences. This is a beginner DVD aimed at inspiring and teaching those with an interest in learning the art of magic.

The DVD features 10 easy-to-learn tricks with playing cards, coins, money and other everyday objects that children and adults can use to entertain their friends, family and colleagues.

In addition to the entertaining tricks, the DVD features Mo’s insight knowledge and guidance on practicing, choosing volunteers and performing, gained through his career.

These DVDs can be bought at the show for R200.

* The show takes place on July 15 at Butlers Restaurant, Hillcrest at 3pm. It runs for 70 minutes and tickets are R125 via Quicket (
