Over 200 million viewers tuned in to Britain’s Got Talent to witness the birth of a phenomenon: the unveiling of an electrifying new illusionist, Darcy Oake. From sleight of hand to death-defying escapades, this master magician grabbed the world’s attention, ushering in an exciting new era of an age-old art form.
Darcy is a performance artist whose modern interpretation gratifies the hunger of audiences seeking spectacle and nail-biting feats of illusion. Inspired by classic sleight of hand techniques and large scale stage illusions, Darcy transports the crowd to another dimension with exhilarating visuals and logic-defying exploits.
After being baffled by an accidental card trick his father – award-winning Canadian sportscaster Scott Oake – showed him at eight years old, Darcy delved into the craft. He soon became an international magic champion, at age sixteen beating out seasoned professionals at various events and winning the coveted People’s Choice Gold Medal in Seattle, Washington. Even before he was legally old enough to enter nightclubs, Darcy headlined at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, California.
Today, Darcy proudly carries on the tradition of such classic illusionists as his fellow Canadian Doug Henning, while adding his trademark grandeur and charm.
In 2015 Darcy starred in his very own UK prime time TV Christmas Special. Immediately following Darcy embarked on a full tour of the UK selling out across the board.
In 2016 he made a guest appearance on America’s Got Talent proving once again that the impossible is possible and was further honoured to be a part of Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday celebration where he performed before the Royal Family inside Windsor Castle.
