REVIEWS

“the highlight of the evening’s entertainment was the performance of the devastatingly handsome magician Declan Wong.”
‘On the Town’ by Winsome Lane, Hong Kong

It’s hardly surprising Declan Wong has magical powers; he comes from a ‘full house of stars’.   Declan is a master of misdirection ... he can make a glass ball float on a piece of silk or pull 100 coins out of thin air.
‘Abracadabra’ – Sherman Chau for Hong Kong Mail

This interview was plain freaky.  Illusionist Declan Wong handed me a couple of cards – the two and three of diamonds.  I held them tight.  He touched the cards. In my hand were two black kings.
Mr Wong’s audiences ...his appearance at the Academy Awards in 1988 or performing for audiences of 1000 at high-flying balls in Japan and Hong Kong.  Earlier this month he performed at the opening of Otago’s 150th anniversary celebrations in Dunedin.
‘Now you see it’ – Rhonda Markby for The Timaru Herald

Small children and grown adults were equally amazed yesterday when magician Declan Wong performed at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery.
The sleight-of-hand artist and illusionist drew gasps of surprise from an audience of about 150 while also drawing cards from the air.
‘Magical show at gallery’ – Tracie Barrett for ODT
