Facilitator Profile

One of Australia’s finest close-up magicians, Daz Buckley is a quality entertainer and sleight of hand expert. Using impossible and original magic Daz entertains with a healthy dose of comic presentations and a hilarious self-deprecating wit. With decades of experience, and a show to suit every type of audience, he will work with you to tailor a very special event perfect for your needs. A performance for you and your guests to remember and talk about forever.

With regular weekly performances at one of Brisbane’s premier restaurants for over three years and the Official Magician for Westfield Shopping centres, plus sold-out performances of his family stage show “Bedazzled”, he is also busy with regular corporate and private performances as a roving and stage entertainer, MC, and motivational speaker.

“Daz is a likable and laid-back performer, and his sleight- of-hand work was expert and compelling. His appeal as ‘everyday man’ or even ‘a big kid’ creates its own drama, theatre and tension “  Weekend Notes”
