True Inspiration

Mahdi Gilbert began his television career in 2015 when a variety of his performances were broadcast to the entire nation of Finland through MTV and YLE to promote his live show, Modern Magic: An Evening of Bespoke Conjuring.

The Academy of Magical Arts invited Mahdi to perform his close-up card magic at The Magic Castle in Hollywood, one of the world’s most exclusive clubs. He is one of the only magician’s in the world to hold an open invitation to perform whenever he would like.

He was the first foreign magician to appear on South Korean national television in 2016.

Legendary Vegas showman, Johnny Thompson personally invited Mahdi to Las Vegas to appear on Penn & Teller Fool Us. Mahdi fooled Penn & Teller on US national television and remains one of the only magicians in the world to have done so. He was later invited to perform at the Penn & Teller Theater in the Rio Hotel & Casino.

There is one thing that is very different about Madhi Gilbert. He is the only magician in the world without hands and feet since the renowned 17th century conjuror, Matthias Buchinger.

Here in the UK over 5 million people tuned in to see Mahdi’s episode on (BBC One) The One Show.

He really is a true inspiration, he has entertained audiences all over the world in a wide variety of venues and occasions and millions have seen his magic on TV.
