THE Naked Magicians, the world’s naughtiest and funniest magic show strips away the top hats and capes to promise full-frontal illusions when the show appears at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre on Sunday, February 4.

The show is packing theatres around the world.

Starring Mike Tyler and Christopher Wayne, two of Australia’s most famous magicians, The Naked Magicians combines magic and muscles with riotous laughs that takes magic to a whole new level.

“Good magicians don’t need sleeves and great magicians don’t need pants,” Tyler said.

The 31-year old buff bros went from best friends to partners in prestidigitation in 2014 following several boisterous audience members who asked them to make their clothes disappear.

“Its kind of crazy because magic is the second-oldest profession and we could not believe that no one had combined the two things everyone loves – magic and nudity,” Wayne said.

The Aussie duo has been performing magic for nearly 20 years.

Wayne, the proud owner of a freakishly long tongue, is the first Australian magician in TV history to have his own TV series.

More than Magic aired in Australia, England, New Zealand, as well as the US.

The sporty tan lines and physique seen on stage hint at Tyler’s Speedo-wearing days when he swan competitively at the Australian National Championships and Pan Pacific Games before becoming a professional magician for corporate events around the world.

“Being on stage doing magic without relying on pockets or sleeves does add that extra challenge and ups our game, “ Wayne said.

“When we say abracadabra, the audience isn’t always looking at our hands.”

The show includes coarse language, sexual references and some nudity and is intended for over 18s.
