Cosentino is Australia’s most successful Illusionist and Escape artist performing to rave reviews globally.

‘International Magician of the Year’ and the only Australian to ever win the prestigious Merlin awards, Cosentino performs death-defying escapes that will thrill your senses, mind-boggling stage illusions, and cutting-edge street magic that twists your view of reality.

100 Years On – Houdini Inspired Escape Challenge

In 2010, recreating the famous escape of his idol Harry Houdini in Melbourne 100 years earlier, Cosentino lowered himself into a tank at Melbourne Aquarium, chained to a 60kg weighted block. Although the stunt took him longer than Houdini, he still managed to escape unassisted in three minutes and 39 seconds (a crazy amount of time to be able to hold your breath!) using just a lock pick.

In 2011, Cosentino auditioned for Australia’s Got Talent claiming his mother got him into magic when he was just 13 by locking herself out of the house and giving him the chance to pick the lock. The judges loved his act for its modern twist, as he incorporated music and dance into the performance. Danni Minogue even described him as ‘Michael Jackson makes magic’.
