Josh Staley


Based in Melbourne

Josh Staley creates live performance art that seems utterly impossible. He is the winner of multiple awards and achievements, including the Australian Junior Champion of Close-up Magic. Josh has appeared on TV, performed across Australia and internationally, and is a Guinness World Record holder, helping lead a team of magicians to break the world record for ‘longest magic show’. His unique skills are constantly in demand, whether as a corporate performer, as an entertainer at private parties or at sell-out shows such as the Melbourne Comedy and Magic Festivals.

Magic is about creating a moment in time, where something truly impossible takes place, that you'll never forget witnessing. Josh creates these moments every time he performs, whether it's a small close up show or a grand stage performance. Using sleight of hand, comedy, theatre and psychology, Josh creates unique memories you'll never forget.
