The 30th New Zealand International
Magicians Convention, June 2010

*Convention Banquet and Variety Show*

The convention banquet on Sunday 6th of June will be a night to remember. As well as a top-notch buffet and convention awards being presented we've lined up some sensational entertainment including:

Sean Taylor is a world renowned magician, mentalist and speaker, and one of Australia's top corporate entertainers. His comedy, magic and mindreading presentations are a unique and hilarious combination of wit, intuition, audience interaction, psychology and pure magic. He claims not to be psychic, but you be the judge!

Sean is a Gold Star Member of The Inner Magic Circle, the only performer in Australia to hold the highest degree. He has over 25 years of performing experience, in more than 15 countries. He knows what you're thinking - he really does!

At the tender age of eight, Darren Carr started playing with dolls and talking to himself. Luckily for him, coming from a show business background, this was not only considered to be quite normal, but actually encouraged.

Darren is now recognized throughout the industry as Australia's number one stand up ventriloquist performing with his cast of crazy characters at numerous corporate functions, special events, clubs, and theatres, worldwide.

Over the past ten years, Darren has also appeared on many of the premier cruise lines including P&O, Princess, Silver Seas, Royal Caribbean and Holland America, performing with great acclaim to audiences from all over the world.

Darren has been honoured with numerous "ACE" and "MO" Entertainment Awards as "Speciality Performer of the Year", "Club Performer of the Year", "Best Variety Act" and "Best Comedy." He has also twice accepted invitations to appear as a headliner at international ventriloquist conventions in the USA.

Darren is acting as MC at our "International Stars of Magic" shows, but he's saving his comedy standup ventriloquism act for the banquet!

When it comes time for the Hollywood elite to be entertained, they call TC Tahoe. He has performed for celebrities such as Pierce Brosnan, Josh Brolan, Jack Nicholson, Denzel Washington, Paula Abdul, Sean Penn, Johnny Cash, Jane Seymour, Steven Seagal and Jay Leno.
With his combination of wit, whimsy and wonder, The Academy of Magical Arts have nominated him five times as Closeup Magician of the Year, and twice named him Parlour Magician of the Year.

And your Master of Ceremonies:

No-one is recognised as knowing more about Hollywood and celebrities than David Hartnell. He's not only spent a lifetime reporting on Hollywood's trivia, gossip and scandals, but he counts many celebrities among his personal friends. David is an award winning broadcaster and columnist and also the patron of The Variety Artists Club of New Zealand.
