Brendon Peel has performed across SA and on an array of international platforms. He is looking forward to wowing audiences at the Hilton Festival his show: Hocus Pocus – filled with innovative mentalism and mind-reading routines as well as more traditional magic tricks as Peel guides the audience through a variety of illusions and feats all blended together with a fun-loving and humorous approach.
Born to be an entertainer, and with a strong theatrical background, Brendon says you can call him a magician, a mentalist or an illusionist. “I am what is known as a mentalist, which is basically a magician who focuses in on performing magic of the mind,” he explains.
“Designing shows that incorporate effects or illusions that have never been seen before really excites me,” he continues. “In magic it is beautiful when you can suspend someone’s reality even if it is for just a fleeting moment.” Named by critics as one of the top performers in his field, Peel is guaranteed to engage, entertain and blow the minds of everyone in the audience with a show which is fun and engaging for the whole family.
He has appeared on national television, radio and in news publications across the country. He has consulted on various TV adverts as well as starred in both national and international TV performances.
Peel is a proud member of the South African Magical Society (affiliated with the Magic Circle of London); the Cape Town Magic Club (affiliated to the Monday Night Magic groups in London and New York) and is a core member and content contributor to Magic Africa.
