"I now actually believe in Magic" - Simon Cowell
"How did you do that? You should have won!!" - Sir Richard Branson
"Mr Raven, I am in awe of your greatness" - Ian Wright
Jamie Raven burst onto an unsuspecting world during the 2015 series of Britain’s Got Talent. His magic not only amazed everyone, but his humble and charming style also captured the UK public’s hearts. He even made Simon Cowell exclaim, “I now finally believe in magic!”
But it’s not been an overnight success story. Jamie has been perfecting his craft over the past 11 years working as a magician for top companies around the world and his ambition was always to take it to a wider audience and BGT finally gave him that chance. His opening audition and other subsequent performances has now been viewed online over 100 million times making him one of the most viewed magicians in the world.
Since finishing BGT, as well as being signed to headline in "The Illusionists" at The Shaftesbury Theatre in London’s West End this Christmas, he’s was launched as the online face for Talk Talk, promoting their latest advertising campaign. He was invited to perform on stage alongside Sir Richard Branson at the world famous Fillmore Theatre as part of the celebrations of the inaugural Virgin Atlantic flight to Detroit and in June 2016 he embarks on his own UK Theatre Tour, “Jamie Raven Live”.
