It's great when Australian magicians get on TV, but when the right ones get on and really make an impact, that's even better.
Such was the case last night with Cosentino on Australia's Got Talent. Over the year's he has matured as a performer and it's so clear that his time is now. Sure, the judges will think that they've "discovered" him but it's Cos who's playing the game perfectly and reaping the rewards.
His water escape last night is buzzing all over the media this morning, with a great piece in the Herald Sun 'Confidential' section here. Last time he had people raving about his illusions and his dancing, this time it's his escape and his body. He seems to be covering all bases and we wish him well in the Grand Final!
Also in the Herald Sun this morning there was a preview of Lawrence Leung's Unbelievable. His new TV series starts next Wednesday, 9.30pm on ABCTV and the reviewer absolutely raved about it giving it 5 stars.
Can't wait for this series to start.
Both of these extremely talented Melbourne magicians have worked extremely hard to get where they are today, creating unique and individual personas and choosing to emerge on TV when they have enough original material for a sustainable run.
Well done guys!
