The five stars, each a master in their own field, are:
The Trickster, Jeff Hobson is the epitome of glamour and showmanship. Don’t be fooled by his
innocent appearance; Jeff has audiences laughing long after the curtain goes down.
The Inventor, Kevin James is known for innovative illusions, is an inventor, comedian and collector of
the strange and unusual. Kevin is one of the most prolific inventors of magic in the world and has
created some of the most celebrated illusions of the last century.
The Deductionist, Colin Cloud, one of the greatest thought readers of all time is a psychic savant known
as a real‐life Sherlock Holmes. Don’t play against him in a game of poker – he’s never lost.
The Manipulator, An Ha Lim: The first place winner at Korea’s Busan International Magic Competition
(2006), Italy Club Convention Manipulation (2006) and World Magic Seminar in Asia (2007), An Ha Lim
was also a Golden Lion Award winner at the World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas (2008).
The Daredevil, Jonathan Goodwin, is widely considered one of the most creative, skilled, and frankly
crazy stunt performers in the world. He is an accomplished knife thrower, archer, escape artist, fakir,
martial artist, free diver, and free climber. Unlike the other performers in the show, Jonathan is not a
magician or illusionist but he will leave the audience breathless with his death‐defying stunts.
