As the United Kingdom’s original “technology magician,” Jamie Allan and his team incorporate classic magic with cutting edge technology to create a unique theatrical experience. Allan’s use of high-powered laser beams, iPads, holograms, social media and drones “exceed[s] all expectations” (The Sun).

Highlights of Allan's show include:
Houdini 2.0: Tackles the legendary Harry Houdini’s most dangerous illusions while incorporating modern technology, such as combining immersive video mapping technology with a thrilling underwater escape.
The Laser Saw: A modern twist on the classic “cut a person in half” trick

Jamie Allan has toured the U.K. for four years with iMagician, which opened at the Garrick Theatre in London’s West End in 2015.

Holding the accolade of being the most televised British illusionist of the last decade, Allan first showcased his iMagic on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ in 1995 when he was just a teenager. Allan has since performed his signature iPad illusion “Digital Art” live on the BBC One Show, ‘Grand Cabaret Du Monde’, ‘BBC Breakfast’, ‘The Slammer’ and ‘Penn and Teller: Fool Us’. He has also been seen as a star mentor on ITV1 in the prime time show ‘Get Your Act Together’, has appeared as the special guest star on ‘Michael McIntyre’s Big Show’, and was a winner of ITV prime time show ‘The Next Great Magician’.
