Kyle Marlett Lecture: Thursday 22nd September

September 16, 2016

The Sheffield Circle is looking forward to Kyle Marlett joining us on Thursday the 22nd of September to present his latest lecture.


“Talented, off-beat and charismatic, Kyle Marlett performs mind-blowing illusions with singular flair. From close-up sleights-of-hand to elaborate new twists on classic illusions, Kyle delivers an endearing charm and infectious comedic deadpan whether on the stage, on the street or on camera.

Today, it’s hip to be square and this magician has embraced the “nerd” label and made it a unique, personal hook that appeals to today’s modern audience. Hip to social media, digital content and authenticity, Kyle’s peer group have found his persona appealing, entertaining and aspirational. He’s redefining what it means to be a “nerd” and creating a unique following of his own.

Kyle’s already stacked up televised appearances on The Tonight Show, Syfy’s Wizard Wars, and as a recurring performer on POP’s upcoming Don’t Blink. Whether performing one-on-one with celebrities, filming an impromptu viral video with the latest Vine star, performing for the camera or for a spontaneously-gathered crowd, Kyle commands audiences with poise and an up-for-anything confidence. Kyle spent years honing his craft behind-the-scenes in collaboration with the world’s greatest illusionists and magic acts.

He has conceived, designed and implemented some of the most memorable illusions in Las Vegas, on Broadway’s highest-grossing magic show, on London’s West End, in movies and on television. Now, Kyle offers that peak creativity and trademark style in his new one-man Las Vegas show where he performs dazzling new tricks and delivers never-seen-before illusions. It’s no wonder this rising star was recently voted one of the “Most Interesting People in Las Vegas” by Seven Magazine. And it’s easy to see why a relentless pursuit of astounding magic is his calling card.”
