An exceptionally skilled break-dancer and a gifted showman, Magical Bones is considered one of the most exciting talents to emerge from the Magic scene in recent years.

    Born Richard Essien, he was nicknamed “Magical Bones” for his hard-hitting dance style. Despite having a successful career as a dancer, Essien’s heart was in magic and as such, a few years ago he chose to shift careers. Magical Bones was selected as the headline magician for the hit West End magic show, Impossible. This played for two seasons, at the Noel Coward Theatre before moving on to a hugely successful world tour in 2017. He has also featured in Sky’s TV series Around The World in 80 Tricks, CW Penn & Teller: Fool Us In The USA, Crackerjack on CBBC and ITV’s This Morning. He also closed BBC One’s coverage of the BAFTA Awards ceremony.

    Magical Bones is considered to be the most exciting talent to have emerged from the magic industry in recent years.

    After getting to the finals of Britain’s Got Talent in 2020, he decided to create his own show and go on the road to entertain crowds with the width and breadth of the country. With his unique style of combining high-octane break-dance moves with the coolest back-flipping card tricks and jaw-dropping street magic, guests will be surely kept at the edge of their seats.

    Black Magic challenges the connotations usually associated with this term and the show culminates with a tribute to the Black Magician Henry Box Brown, a 19th-century slave from Virginia who escaped to freedom at the age of 33 in 1849 by arranging to have himself shipped inside a wooden crate to abolitionists in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.#

    The tour encompasses some rescheduled dates from his 2020 tour along with the new shows. The tour will start on February 9th this year at the Phoenix in Exeter and will finish in April of this year.
