Everyone loves magic. We all think we can catch magicians out, but they win every single time! Good magicians blow our minds and keep us guessing – Owen Lean is no exception. Don’t just take our word for it: he’s fully qualified, graduating in 2006 with the world’s first degree in street magic.
What to expect from Owen Lean
Owen’s street magic act features a wide range of tricks, created to confound and amaze audiences around the world. He uses playing cards, newspapers and some very spikey looking things that might be a little bit dangerous.
He’s also available for close-up magic, completing incredible sleights of hand right under his audience’s nose.
Onstage or close up, Owen’s performances are always razor sharp and delightfully upbeat. As a newspaper once said, Owen Lean will interest those who don’t have an interest in magic!
Self-taught magic skills, honed at Trinity College, Dublin
Owen discovered magic completely by accident when he found a trick deck lying around his parents’ house. Investigating it became quickly hooked on the incredible things he found he was able to do. He turned his knowledge into a street magic act, and has been performing since the age of eighteen.
He graduated in 2006 with the world’s first degree in street magic. A year later Owen’s house burned down and he lost everything he owned. Ever since then, he has travelled the planet performing his unique comedy magic show on the world’s streets.
Owen Lean has now become one of the world’s leading and most respected entertainers and magicians, having performed over five continents and attracted praise from the media, clients and the public alike.
