Street Magician Doug McKenzie Uses New Technologies to Amaze City Commuters

Doug McKenzie is an award-winning magician performing on the street, in theaters and at major events across the globe.

Originally from Scotland but now based in the City, McKenzie likes to take his magic to the streets, incorporating modern technologies to his centuries-old profession.

Doug McKenzie (who has produced magic for the likes of David Blaine) is one of the world’s premiere close-up magic artists. But Doug’s interest in the illusion goes far beyond typical street magic; he has made it his mission to incorporate new technologies into his work, making a seemingly mundane cellphone the key to a mind-blowing performance.
