Why is Alex Blackwood… from Ireland… known as the Amsterdam Magician? Since moving to Amsterdam almost 20 years ago, he has become part of the fabric of this beautiful city. For instance, he is co-founder/producer of the hit Amsterdam Magic Show, now in its third year of sold-out shows. Furthermore he is the entertainer of choice for international companies headquartered in Amsterdam. Companies like Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, UBER, Booking, TomTom to name a few. As a result, he performs at the city’s leading hotels like the Waldorf Astoria, the Amstel Hotel, Hotel L’Europe… not to mention John & Yoko’s favourite “Bed-In” location at the Hilton.
Alex is a regular on Amsterdam’s largest theater stages including Boom Chicago and the newest hotspot Theater Amsterdam as well as institutions like the Heineken Experience.

Who Is The Amsterdam Magician Alex Blackwood?
Communication, technology, psychology… these are the things Alex loves.
Different from many other performers, Alex did not grow up learning magic tricks. Alex had a happy childhood in Ireland and a successful international business career in Europe, Asia and USA before getting the magic bug in his 30s! In fact, it was his love of business communication, technology and psychology that ignited his passion for a niche psychological branch of magic known as mentalism.
Mentalism uses “mind hacks” to either
– Read what people are thinking
– influence how they will act
– Predict what will happen in a certain situation
It may sound simple, but when presented with style and charm, the results are wondrous. If you are having an event in Amsterdam, Alex is the perfect magician to entertain. His style is hugely appealing to a sophisticated business audience. No rabbits, no top hats, no cheap jokes. Alex uses modern themes and engaging presentations to create wonderful experiences that cross cultural divides and create lifelong memories.
