Toronto: Darcy Oake

From the Sony Centre For The Performing Arts:
Canadian master illusionist and sleight of hand artist Darcy Oake, makes his highly anticipated return to Canada this November and December with his acclaimed Edge of Reality tour following UK dates that wrap up in London’s prestigious Hammersmith Apollo. The Canadian tour includes appearances in Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver, and takes the award-winning illusionist back to his hometown of Winnipeg, MB on December 4 at the MTS Centre.

Darcy Oake has become a global sensation since his 2014 appearances on UK’s hugely successful television competition Britain’s Got Talent where he surpassed thousands of contestants to land among the show’s top ten finalists and win over 200 million viewers of the program worldwide. A YouTube clip showing Oake making doves seemingly appear out of nowhere, has garnered more than 52.5 million views alone. Watch the video HERE.
Darcy Oake, like his contemporaries David Blaine and Criss Angel, brings a fresh approach to a mysterious and ancient craft. With the Edge of Reality tour, Oake delivers an exhilarating, logic-bending, and contemporary adaptation of an art form that has puzzled and entertained for centuries.

Oake is the winner of multiple awards, including the coveted People’s Choice Gold Medal, which he received from the Pacific Coast Association of Magicians. Managed by Paquin Entertainment, he has since gone on to become an international magic champion and headlined at the iconic Magic Castle in Hollywood, made numerous international television appearances, including his own 1-hour Edge of Reality special on UK’s ITV, toured the globe and this Fall shares his passion for illusion in a new book Behind the Illusion, where he delves into secrets and history of classic illusions.
