Ben Hanlin

Ben Hanlin is one of the UK’s most successful magicians. The Brummie is co-writer and start of ITV’s primetime hidden camera show Tricked (2013-17), where he has captured audiences with his, occasionally shocking, magic, and boy-next-door character. Tricked won Best Entertainment Programme at the renowned Broadcast Digital Awards in 2014, and the show won the rating wars for two seasons running.

Known for his unique pranks, Ben Hanlin’s mischievous magic has persuaded famous personalities to believe he had invented the time machine, has convinced an actress to believe she had seen a ghost, and prompted a UK boy band to watch as one of their members feel off a cliff top from a moving trailer.

Type Of Speaker


The audience were truly amazed at his performance and it added that element of showbiz that I needed.
Daragh Byrne, Commercial Director, UTV Ireland

Ben was our headline at our annual conference. He delivered a very unique and special show which incorporated everything he does best, humour and magic. The audience of over 500 guests absolutely loved him.
DAF Trucks Ltd

Ben delivered a fantastic show at the Inchcape Leaders event in Brussels, he kept a room that included 62 nationalities, transfixed throughout. He had wonderful natural engagement with the audience who were bamboozled by his illusions. Most impressively the show was tailored around key company members and brought the house down.
Johnny Barran Ents

We hired Ben and received some of the best feedback ever (and I mean, ever!). His ability to work with the audience was totally brilliant. I still cannot get my head around how he turned 250 people into magicians. He is very special and so easy to work with.
XPREZ Events

We decided to book Ben for our Corporate Christmas Party and he didn’t disappoint. Not only was his act a massive success with the audience, the way he commanded the room was first class. I couldn’t recommend him enough and the great thing is he’s a thoroughly nice guy too!
Charlie Harrison, Managing Director, Furniture Village

Ben had the entire audience transfixed from beginning to end!
Sam Goss, President, Amplifi Europe

I knew Ben would be a great speaker but rarely do we get speakers that light up an audience like he did. Not only was Ben’s talk entertaining, it was informative and actionable. He was also nothing but a pleasure to deal with. Don’t waste your time with some boring corporate speaker, hire Ben instead!
James Sandbrook, Co-Founder, The Marketing Meetup

He has a fabulous art of captivating and engaging with an audience and not just through his magic, he is genuinely an interesting and funny guy which just tops off an all-round great event host/compere. I couldn’t recommend Ben highly enough.
