Nicholas J Johnson

Victoria, Australia

Nicholas J. Johnson is a professional speaker, magician, author and educator who specialises in improving the public’s understanding of deception, and helping them to identify scams, hoaxes and suspect science.

For the past 20 years, Nicholas has worked with businesses, law-enforcement agencies and universities to uncover the tricks behind the tricks.

“No one likes the idea of being swindled,” says Nicholas. “But often understanding the reasons why we’re so easily taken for a ride can make us more critical and better able to spot dubious claims in a world filled with fake news.”

 

Nicholas is presenting one of the most beloved shows at The Melbourne Magic Festival this and every year as well as a very special free talk.
