Ex­pect to have your mind blown.’’ Cosentino’s award-win­ning style fuses tra­di­tional sleight-of-hand magic, grand il­lu­sions, dance and es­cape artistry. He started per­form­ing aged 13, in his strug­gle to over­come shy­ness at school. He was last year’s run­ner up on Chan­nel 7 hit Australia’s Got Tal­ent.
