Melbourne born and bred Sam Angelico has been delighting audiences throughout Australia, Europe, Japan and the United States since he was old enough to wield a Magic Cane.
In 1985 Sam was awarded "The World Champion of Comedy Magic" by the International Federation of Magic Societies at the World Congress of Magic in Madrid, Spain.
He is a regular performer at the Magic Castle in Hollywood - the international mecca for Magicians, and in July 1987 his unique talent was featured in the World Premier of "New Vaudeville Magic" at the Empire Theatre in New York City.
He has appeared on Television and in Cabaret throughout Australia, the UK, Japan, the Netherlands, West Germany and the USA.
At a mere 5'3" he remains a giant in the world of magic - there is no one quite like him!
"Excellent is the word... so good I must see it again tomorrow."
- Abend Zeitung, Munich
"The most entertaining magician we've ever seen."
- Lot's Wife, Monash University Press
"Sam Angelico is everything today's magician should be. He has created a unique character who is brought to life on stage with intense and magical drama. He reaches out and touches the audience - he makes contact with the audience, he talks with them, he communicates with them... Bravo Angelico!"
- Adam J. Fleischer
TALENT ON LINE NOTE TO EVENT MANAGERS: With his look easily adaptable to parts of Europe or to other cultures, Sam Angelico will make a wonderful addition to a variety of themed events. We thought he'd be fabulous as the MC for MOULIN ROUGE themed events for example.
