MEET THE SHOWMEN
Mike Tyler is the co-creator and co-producer of Showmen. As a performer, he’s sold out ticketed stage shows in over 300 cities around the world including Las Vegas, New York, Hong Kong, London and Edinburgh alongside fellow Showmen, Christopher Wayne. Mike is one of Australia’s favourite and most successful magicians and he’ll blow your mind with psychology, predictions, and mind reading known as “mentalism”. Over 50 million people have seen his TV performances on international networks CBS, NBC, ABC and FOX including America's Got Talent and Entertainment Tonight.
Joel Fenton has been entertaining audiences internationally for over 20 years performing unbelievable circus stunts in theatres, cruise ships and circuses all over Australia, USA, Belgium, Poland, Germany and New Zealand. He recently impressed 80,000 screaming football fans for the NRL half-time show and in 2022 was a feature act in Australia's biggest touring international circus show. He regularly appears on television attempting ridiculous tricks and insane stunts that leave audiences on the edge of their seats.
If you’re lucky enough to be in the front row, please watch out carefully for flying knives, axes and running chainsaws.
Apollo Jackson will wow you with incredible escapes and being so darn likeable. He’s the ultimate combination of extreme athlete, stuntman, escape artist, and musician. Many will recognise him from The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise, and Australia’s Got Talent. While it didn’t work out with Sophie Monk, his love of magic stuck around and Apollo is no stranger to the stage and screen (he was even stunt double for The Hulk in the MCU).
Sleight of hand has never looked (or sounded) so good! Branded as “Hot Magic Josh” by the judges in the finals of “Australia’s Got Talent”, this beatboxing, hip hop dancing, street magician will BACKFLIP your senses with his fusion of magic, hip hop and athleticism. Performing across Australia, Pacific Islands, New Zealand and India, Josh is the perfect ingredient for Showmen.
