Adam Mada, our Australian correspondent and the host of Wonder Thunder is helping to redefine the image of magic in Sydney.  As discussed in my interview with Nicholas Johnson, he and Adam are co-hosting the Australian version of The Real Hustle.  Adam and his co-star Vegas are featured in an article from Sydney Central Magazine exploring the new image of conjuring. 

“In The Duelling Magicians (his most recent show) we are doing something different,” Mada said.

“There are no female stage hands in skimpy costumes being mutilated or sawn in half, which is pretty archaic and sexist in itself.

“Instead, it’s just Vegas and I eating razors, chopping each other’s arms off, and passing string through our necks.

“We’re pushing the envelope, it’s not a conventional magic performance.”
