It began with an innocent card trick. At the age of 7, Darcy Oake’s father, award-winning sports broadcaster Scott Oake, asked his son to pick a card from a deck, remember it and put it back in the deck. His father drew that card, astonishing his young son and forever changing his life’s path. His father did not know any magic tricks. It was pure luck. Or was it? Fate had put its hand into play.

From that day forward, Darcy, by all accounts a shy boy, spent countless solitary hours standing in front of a mirror perfecting magic tricks. He ate, slept and breathed his newfound passion and like all successful magicians, began to find himself in his craft and develop his unique on-stage showmanship.

As he headed into his teens, at 16, Darcy became the youngest person in history to win the Pacific Rim Professional Stage Challenge, followed shortly by the coveted People’s Choice Gold Medal Award. Darcy however had his eye on The Magic Castle in Hollywood, the famous nightclub for magicians and magic enthusiasts, which also houses the Academy of Magical Arts. Clearly one of the more unusual private clubs!

He managed to headline the famous venue at the age of 18 – before he was legally allowed to, so convinced he was of his life’s work that no one was going to tell him otherwise.Two years later the Winnipeg born native headlined his first national tour of Canada, performing an amazing 77 shows in more than 25 cities. This led to bookings in venues around the world from Las Vegas to New York, Europe, and Asia.

Fast-forward to 2014 and Darcy Oake received the breakthrough of a lifetime – an appearance before 200 million viewers on ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent. It was the birth of an electrifying new magician! He impressed both the judges and the audience, catapulting his star much higher than even he had believed possible.

In 2016 he made a guest appearance on America’s Got Talent proving once again that the impossible is possible and was further honoured to be a part of Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday celebration where he performed before the Royal Family at a private dinner.

As a performance artist and modern interpreter of the art of illusion, Darcy transports audiences with his charm, his sleight of hand and logic-defying illusions. He has taken the rich heritage of the magic culture and put a fresh, young and modern twist on the profession. The truth is, you can do the impossible. Never think your actions are insignificant. It's a fact, miracles can happen. And I find it impossible to believe that magic isn’t real.
