Ben Hanlin, Magician will appear in Discovery Channel’s Magic of Science

The British born Ben Hanlin has been doing magic since he was five years old, specialising in sleight of hand and close up illusions. He was at a function at The Venue, Sandton, recently to introduce Discovery Network International’s Magic of Science, which will thrill viewers. On the evening he thrilled me by swallowing several needles, then some thread and then pulling them out threaded – a useful trick for those of us oldies who are now suffering from “short-arm sight”.

In this series he, together with a team of other magicians, will crush a ten tonne oil tanker as if it is an empty colddrink can. He will drive a 4×4 across a swimming pool without sinking. He will make a man levitate fifteen centimetres off the ground. He will do this with showmanship, magic and the power of science.

His current series, Tricked, with its hidden camera magic is winning him fans all over the world.
