Being a female illusionist makes the act different for starters. It's mixed up with old and new twists, includes some dramatic illusions, professional choreography and audience participation.
Having come from a family in show business Karen has been brought up with it her whole life. From the age of 18months Karen has been on stage performing in professional shows, progressing onto young theatre groups, variety shows and even teaching at her local dance school from the age of 14, she has had a true passion for all aspects of the performing arts.
Karen was a National Young Magician of the Year finalist at 15, entertaining magicians at various competitions and even events at the famous Magic Circle in London, this included a Bond Theme magic act with Timothy Dalton as special gue ... st.
Karen went on to progress further and gained a BTEC national diploma in Dance at college and was then accepted into a top professional training school The Urdang Academy. After graduating Karen went straight into work assisting in choreography for production shows at Warners Hotels, as well as dancing professionally within the shows herself.
Karen was fortunate to have been part of a successful illusionist duo called "David and Karen." They auditioned
for the well known TV talent show Britains Got Talent. In 5 years of the show the magic duo were the first to impress all the judges and went straight through to the LIVE semi finals where they came 3rd in their heat and 2nd by the public vote. During this period David and Karen had interviews on Daybreak and This Morning. After the viewings on the show Karen and her magic partner went on to perform at a number of corporate events, headlined at prestigious places in London,such as G.A.Y, HSBC & Toyota,they took the act to Paris where they performed at the world famous Museum of Old Fairground Rides, and then arriving back to the UK the duo wowed a sell out theatre at their own "One Off" magic and illusion show - Magic Is Back LIVE!!!
