Jonathan Hawley is originally from Langwith, a small coal mining village in England
located near Nottingham, also known as Robin Hood’s old stomping grounds. He found
his passion for magic at an early age when his grandfather bought him his first magic
book from Blackpool, England. While learning the art of magic, he was also a dancer
which led him to represent Great Britain in South Africa at the Free Style World
Championships where he won first place in several different dance categories.
When he was 21 years old, he left home to pursue a career as a professional dancer on
board a luxury cruise ship in Miami. That is where he met his wife, Trisha who was also
a professional dancer. A few contracts later, they met an Italian illusionist who got
Jonathan back into the world of magic. From then on, Jonathan’s passion for magic
was reignited more than ever before.
Soon after, together they created their own illusion show, Hawley Magic which included
Las Vegas style, grand illusions. Their first gig was for the world’s biggest magic
convention in Blackpool, England as the closing act performing in front of 3,000 magicians.
When America’s Got Talent came to town, they couldn’t pass up the chance to audition.
Out of 75,000 acts to originally audition they were chosen as finalists to compete on
their live show in New York and received millions of votes.
Many calls with amazing offers came in from around the world, but it was Princess
Cruises that snatched them up straight away after AGT. Princess continued to book
them consistently, sometimes with two-year long contracts. Based on passenger’s
comments and feedback, Jonathan and Trisha were nominated for Princess Cruises
Entertainers of the Year, competing against more than 700 acts fleet wide.While on
board the Royal Princess they were chosen to be featured in the UK on ITV’s award-
winning TV show, The Cruise.
While they both love performing the grand illusions, Jonathan’s true love is close up
magic which is why they created a more intimate show that focuses on magic in it’s
purest form called the Man of Magic. It’s family friendly and great for all ages. With the
use of today’s technology he takes the magic so close to his audience it seems to be
right under their noses. He has performed the Man of Magic show around the world
with great success, including in Japan where he learned a little Japanese.
Jonathan’s love of magic continues to grow with each show he performs.
