Magic Performances – Living vicariously through vintage magic

Magic Performances by

Ted Lesley

Ted Lesley, one of Germany’s leading magical entertainers and mentalists, was born in Dueren in the Rheinland area of Germany on 1st August, 1937.

A teacher in the public school knew a few magic tricks which Ted enjoyed so much that from then on, he pursued magic as his hobby — much to the sorrow of his parents who energetically demanded that he should learn something proper. So Ted Lesley first became an accountant and later, in Berlin, a tax consultant.

He eventually changed professionals and become a mentalist. In 1992, Ted was designated “Mentalist of the Year” with the “Dunninger Award” in the USA. This was the first time this coveted “Oscar” of mental magic had been awarded to a European artist.

Watch Ted Lesley bend a wine glass with his mind.
