About Brian

Brian Daly Magician Dublin black and white headshotCommon questions people ask me… Not sure if people actually read this stuff, but here goes, hope you enjoy…

How did you start in Magic?
Many years ago I saw my kindergarten teacher rip up a sheet of newspaper and magically restore it. This blew the back of my tiny head off. That was it. From that moment on, I was learning new tricks from library books, buying magic sets and practising endless card tricks.

How long have you been doing Magic?
Currently over 14 years. I did my first show when I was 13 years old.

Do you have a real job?
I don’t. Magic is my full time profession. It’s not something I do on the side. My living depends on being 100% reliable and doing great shows.

Other Stuff about Brian
I’m a member of the Society of Irish Magicians. Which is a Dublin-based Irish equivalent of the Magic Circle. I’m currently secretary of the Society, this means I have personal responsibility for the secret handshake. Really, I do.

I have public liability insurance – you’re in safe hands.

I have been nominated as “Ireland’s Best Corporate Entertainer” Click here for more info on my work at corporate events for adults
