Ryan Shaw

Victoria, Australia

Ryan has been practicing magic for six years. What started as a small hobby doing close-up magic for friends at parties quickly grew into an ongoing passion.

He began performing professionally at Witches in Britches, one of Melbourne’s foremost theatre restaurants. Most recently he spent six months as a resident magician at the Speakeasy HQ, the only vaudeville theatre in the Southern Hemisphere. He became a popular fixture in the Friday and Saturday vaudeville lineups, also featuring as the opening act for several shows.

Ryan has a flexible presentation style that can range from funny to freakish and customizes his material for each audience. Most of the items he uses to perform are everyday objects made extraordinary through sleight of hand.

 

Ryan Shaw, together with Jo Clyne, is bringing his brand new show to The Melbourne Magic Festival this year.
