Dynamo: Magician Impossible Televsion Show

The following is a sponsored post, but all the thoughts and content are my own.

Do you like street magic? Impossible feats performed with style for amazed passerby? Enter Dynamo, a magician from England who has performed tricks all over the world. Like David Blaine and Criss Angel, Dynamo is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to visual magic and sleight of hand. He has brought a unique style to his performances and has inspired many young magicians.

Dynamo is a magician who grew up in an area in Bradford, England notorious for its violence. His interest in magic was first stimulated by his grandfather. He studied hard and devoted his energy to developing tricks instead of getting into trouble. He went on to amaze countless celebrities, including the likes of Chris Martin and Snoop Dogg.

Recently, Dynamo has a new television series in the UK. Dynamo: Magician Impossible first aired on July 7th. In the show, Dynamo travels the world and entertains pedestrian audiences with his infectious breed of magic. His tricks range from levitation, transforming snow into diamonds, and even walking on water.

Watch the video clip below for a preview of some of his tricks:

The show is quite entertaining and definitely worth a watch. His tricks are very clever and he has a likeable, unassuming personality that draws you in. However, the show is meant to be entertainment, and some of the bigger tricks are only made possible though the magic of television. However, he balances these out with great sleight of hand tricks that would astonish you if you saw them in person.

You can watch Dynamo: Magician Impossible on Thursdays at 9pm on the UK channel Watch. More on the Dynamo TV show.
