The multi-award winning show

Dom Chambers’ unconventional approach to magic has flown him around the globe, made him an online sensation, and landed him on a Broadway stage.

A Boy and His Deck is his coming-of-age story.

Playing cards, a mysterious underground legend, and an impossible quest for both approval and individuality – A Boy and His Deck is a hysterical glimpse into the life of an obsessed teenager trying to find his path as a magician.

One thing is certain – you’ll never look at a deck of cards in the same way again.








“Messing with your mind and stunning you with tricks that are different to anything you’ve seen before. Chambers is the popstar of card magic!” – Read full review – Hi Fi Way

“It really is astonishing. Some tricks appear to rely on mind-reading mentalism as much as magic. In any event, the outcome is always impressive.”Read full review – Clothesline

“I’m not going to give away any spoilers, but this is a man who, although he practiced most of his card magic in the bedroom, is truly a master of his domain. ”Read full review – See Do Eat Review
