MIKE TYLER, co-creator of THE NAKED MAGICIANS, discusses the R-rated magic show which is which making its Chicago debut on March 14.
MIKE TYLER – (NAKED MAGICIAN) The complete package of funny, athletic, sexy and good with his hands… Mike Tyler is perfectly suited to be co-creator and co-star of the world’s naughtiest and funniest magic show. Getting his gear off has always come naturally to Mike who was a competitive swimmer competing at the National Championships and Pan Pacific Games… keep an eye out for his incredible physique and sporty tan lines on stage as proof! After attending school under scholarship, he completed a university degree but soon realized his dream of becoming an entertainer with a quick wit, modest ego, and incredible sleight-of-hand skill. At the age of 31, Mike is in a full time relationship with his career, adventure, and travel. He is considered one of Australia’s favorite and most successful entertainers performing over 250 “clothed” shows for the biggest companies and sporting teams in the country. He has performed countless times to millions of people on TV in Australia, New Zealand, and USA while performing magic in 10 countries around the world. Be careful catching his gaze for too long, as Mike is also a highly skilled comedy hypnotist! Flirt at your own risk…
CHRISTOPHER WAYNE – (NAKED MAGICIAN) As co-creator and co-star of The Naked Magicians,Christopher has a wit quicker than Kim Kardashian’s first marriage and often confused as a Macklemore look-a-like. He is proud owner of a freakily long tongue and an entertainment resume as impressive as his broad climbable shoulders. Originally known as the “clothed” magician on Channel 10’s long-running kids TV program, Christopher then became the first Australian magician in TV history to have his own TV series, “More Than Magic” which aired in Australia, New Zealand, England, and USA. Christopher also spent 4 years as the head comedy writer for Queensland’s favorite breakfast radio show “B105” and continues regular guest spots on several radio stations in Australia. He is happiest on stage in front of thousands of fans with his sleeves up and pants down! Don’t be fooled by his nice guy image, Christopher is more naughty than nice.
