Mahdi The Magician

An utterly unique sleight of (no) hands card magician.

Born without hands or feet, Mahdi Gilbert has struggled through bullying, loneliness and depression to recognition from the greatest magicians of our time.

Throughout his childhood in Toronto, Mahdi was tormented for his physical differences and constantly wondered what would become of his life. Captivated by sleight of hand and card magic, he dreamt of becoming a professional magician – but as he began to study he came across a seemingly insurmountable obstacle: every magic book ever published has been written for performers with two hands.

Undaunted, Mahdi started to develop his own techniques. At first he struggled to even pick up a deck of cards but through dedication and determination he developed an exceptional act that fooled Penn and Teller and has amazed the greatest magicians in the world.
Join Mahdi on his London debut, witness his unbelievable magic and hear his incredible story.
