So Much More…

In addition to being a magician

Tim is also an actor, author, publisher, producer, lecturer, director, inventor of magic tricks and friend to Rainbow Lorikeets everywhere!


MC Compere

Whether you’re planning an Awards Night, Talent Competition, Variety Show or a Conference, Tim has hosted them all!

Tim can inject some amazing energy into the proceedings, from a quick trick or interactive game to fill in for a speaker who’s not ready, to the magical appearance of your CEO!

Magic Workshops

In the magic world, Tim is recognised as “the genius from downunder’. He produces speciality lectures for groups of magicians, as well as workshops, seminars and lectures for non-magicians interesting in exploring how thinking like a magician can activate the creative part of their brains.

Once you learn how to think like a magician, you’ll never look at the world the same way again. Many of Tim’s lecture clients, like Victoria University, call on him several times a year to brush up on techniques and explore more of the psychology of deception.

Hoax Speaker

Tim Ellis has attended events in character for the Department of Treasury, Accenture, and even as the keynote speaker at the Fundraising Industry Awards.

After the show it’s revealed who Tim is and the applause is loud and strong, not just for the show, but also for the amazing illusion Tim has created for the entire evening.

Magic Consulting

Tim has acted as Magic Consultant on several plays, television commercials, the popular series Blue Heelers, and the feature film Matching Jack. (Pictured)

He has also produced several TV shows and many large scale live events including The National Festival of the Magical Arts, several International Magic Conventions, and The Melbourne Magic Festival.

Family Shows

Children’s magic shows will never be the same now that The Mad Hatter has arrived!

The Mad Hatter is played by award-winning Melbourne magician Tim Ellis and he’s the craziest and most outrageous guest you could ever invite to a party! Whether it’s a school, stage, or private birthday… as soon as he arrives at the door the antics begin.

Theatre Shows

Since 1981 Tim Ellis has created over fifty theatrical magic shows for festivals, theatres, and touring seasons.

His most recent productions include Full House (a show about the art of poker), Aspycadabra (an autobiography dealing with Asperger’s Syndrome), Something About Needles & Razorblades (a live horror show), and In Dreams (pictured).

The Laneway Theatre

Tim has his own personal, custom designed theatre where live magic shows are staged on a regular basis.

“The theatre itself resembles a Gold Class Cinema” said The Herald Sun, and Tay About Town described it as “An oasis of Magic.”

Many groups reserve the entire 32 seat venue to treat their guests to a truly one of a kind, magical night out.
