JESSE BROOKS

The Wizard

Born in Cape Town South Africa with an instinctive desire to astonish others, Jesse Brooks found magic at an early age. His passion started when his grade two teacher, a magician's assistant, taught him his very first card trick; Jesse then sold his tricycle to pay for his first magic set. Since then, he has been involved in many near-successful pyramid schemes to help him acquire more flashy props and his current collection boasts a very shiny wand and an incredibly attractive suitcase. Now a graduate of the College of Magic, Jesse has performed in many interesting places; from the middle of the Karoo to Hollywood. He has also represented South Africa in Las Vegas at the IMX magic conference.

Jesse’s personality reflects itself in his performance; his style fuses powerful magic and comedic flair to create moments of whimsical wonder which leave his audiences mystified, laughing and thoroughly entertained.

Jesse currently divides his time between working as a creative consultant, teaching young aspirant magicians, and going on adventures. He is passionate about spreading the wonder of magic and is extremely excited to be performing at the Cape Town Magic Club.
