Darcy, a thrilling Canadian illusionist, won the coveted People's Choice Award in Seattle and performed at the Magic Castle in Hollywood before he was legally of age.
Aged 26, he dazzled the nation as a finalist on ITV's Britain's Got Talent and on ITV special Edge of Reality. In Behind the Illusion, magician Darcy Oake takes you through the nine traditionally accepted forms of magic.
He reveals the origins and science behind various illusions, and explains why there is a difference between what the eye sees and what is actually happening on stage; as well as giving famous examples from history, and his own personal twists on them.
