Colin Underwood

Based: Johannesburg

Multi-talented comedy magician Colin Underwood has created laughs at corporate events, shows, festivals and concerts across South Africa and beyond for over 30 years!  Colin’s mind-numbing magical effects are equally powerful whether appearing as a pickpocket, mime artist or a compere comedian, while Colin is of course widely regarded as South Africa’s premiere juggler.

From Dubai shopping festivals, London street festivals, Spanish resort hotels and on cruise ships, Colin’s unique brand of magic has enthralled audiences around the globe. He has won several awards for his comedy magic and has appeared extensively in media – both print and television – in South Africa and Great Britain.

Combining comedy magic, pick pocketing, crazy juggling, impersonations and loads of audience participation, Colin’s corporate show takes any corporate event – big or small – to a new level!  With a knack of choosing the perfect spectator for each routine, Colin’s show appeals to guests of all ages and cultures. Although his routines have been honed through countless performances over the years, Colin keeps it fresh each time with his hilarious ad libbing, situation comedy and audience participation.  No two Colin Underwood shows are ever the same!

An intimate and interactive experience between the magician and the audience, Colin’s close-up miracles never fail to wow guests from all walks of life.  Performing with everyday articles including coins, cards, rings and jewellery, Colin strolls amongst guests, giving them ample opportunity to experience the magic up close.  This style of entertainment is suitable for banquets, award ceremonies, corporate luncheons or dinner functions and weddings where guests are mingling around, or comfortably seated at their tables. He will entertain each table with a mix of strong visual magic, crazy wit and humour.

A themed magician or character roving amongst delegates or guests is the ideal ice breaker for carnivals or corporate parties. Colin’s characters range from a wacky businessman, mime, crazy waiter, robot or an artistic clown in the Cirque du Soliel genre.  He integrates situational magic, street magic, mime, juggling and balloon modeling in his character performances.
