Watch the master illusionist Vitaly in action at his specially curated show, An Evening of Wonders. A household name after having actually fooled fellow magicians Penn and Teller on their show, Penn and Teller: Fool Us, Vitaly's ingenius theatrical performance will leave you questioning reality, with a whole new perspective about the world of magic and illusion.

Why Watch Vitaly

An illusionist as fascinating as his name, Vitaly made his presence known with his famous appearance on Penn and Teller: Fool Us, where he actually managed to fool both Penn and Teller.

With a passion for magic since he was 14, Vitaly Beckman used to entertain his friends and family with material he had developed himself. He realised that he could reignite people's imaginations and bring back the childhood wonder one tends to lose as an adult. He even abandoned an engineering career to do just this, using his act as a means to bridge the gap between reality and dreams. His illusions range from bringing drawings and pictures to life, to fascinating acts like erasing people's faces from their own driving licenses. No matter how small the act is, Vitaly breathes artistry and innovation into everything he does.

Vitaly's latest stage show, An Evening of Wonders, is possibly his most ambitious and grandest spectacle yet. A theatrical experience like no other, the show combines Vitaly's keen observation of human behaviour with his illusions, creating a show that draws the audience in and makes them see beyond the magic to understand that one is only limited by that which is tangible, thus celebrating the unlimited, intangible human imagination.

The Show

With a reputation that precedes his name, Vitaly, known for being 'one of the most captivating and enjoyable illusionists performing in the world today' (Chilliwack Progress), has created what could possibly be the fountainhead of his magical career. He has designed and invented every single illusion in his stage show, which combines an out-of-the-world theatrical performance with art and nuance, elegantly carrying it off with his charming personality and flair. Through his show, Vitaly has managed to create a visual extravaganza for the 21st Century that will leave even the most disbelieving audience member wanting to be a part of the act!

Critics Reviews

More than simply delighting his audience with what he can do, Vitaly’s mission is to take them to a place where 'imagination meets reality.'
- The Epoch Times

There are delightful moments in this showcase for the Russian-Israeli-Canadian illusionist Vitaly, and even a few beautiful ones, such as when he transforms nature sketches from a notepad into three-dimensional leaves and flowers.
