As many young boys are, Alex Tan, Singapore based Magician, was intrigued
by magic at a very early age. At six years of age, he remembers
sitting in front of the television and being fascinated by the
magician he saw on the short but often Teach a trick
program,"Trick Or Treat". Having learned his first
trick with ropes, he began showing the trick and amazing everyone,
friends and relatives.
His mum bought him a magic kit on his seventh birthday and he
worked hard on each of the tricks. That day happens to be one
of his happiest day of his life.
His dad seeing him being so very passionate about Magic brought
him to his first ever REAL Magic shop and the very young and happy
Alex walked out with a truckload of Magic after a few hours. Those
tricks also became what you would call,"Alex The Magician's First
The next few years, Alex worked hard perfecting
his Magic, picking up other variety arts along the way like ventriloquism,
clowning and juggling.
At age fourteen, Alex's focus shifted to DJing and learned
all about being a DJ from anything he could get his hands on.
He always had the desire to perform and being in front of a crowd,
and being a DJ sort of filled that gap. He is fortunate to have
many great teachers and excelled in DJing to the point of considering
it as a career. But Magic was never out of Alex's life.
After only a few years being a DJ working many great venues and
clubs, Alex suddenly woke up one day and realized that magic
is really what he wanted to do.
He gave up DJing and continued his journey to being a professional
Magician. But those years being a DJ gave him a great foundation
on speaking, entertaining and being in front of a crowd.
Completing a course on Tourism Management, Alex served National
Service in The Singapore Air Force. After which, Alex came into
society and worked for a year as an Event Producer with two companies,
Razes Entertainment and Media Event Management. That one year
helped greatly in his career as a professional Magician.
After only a year in event management, Alex took the plunge to
pursue his dream, being a Magician.
Alex started with humble beginnings, working the streets as a
busker. He would entertain passer-bys with his Magic and antics,
and only getting paid when his job is done well. Those grueling
days as a busker helped perfect his skills in entertaining with
After 16 years as a professional Magician, Alex has entertained
royalties, celebrities, politicians and everyday people across
six countries in over 1800 performances and still counting.
It has been an exciting and fulfilling journey for Alex... and
it is far from being over.
