Marco Tempest wins the World Magic Award 2009 for Best Contemporary Magic.
We are honored to announce that Marco has been awarded Best Contemporary Magician of 2009 at this year’s World Magic Awards. Joining a dozen or so of the world’s top magic acts, Marco performed both his “Aura,” and “Magic Touch,” two of his most popular pieces, for the gathered crowd of A-list celebrities at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica.
October 10 was the big night and it began with dozens of Hollywood Celebrities arriving on the red carpet. Louis Gossett Jr, Sharon Case, Kristoff St. John, Daniel Goddard and Carolyn Hennessy were among the many stars who participated in the evening’s festivities. Hosts husband and wife team Robert Wagner ('Austin Powers') and Jill St John ('Diamonds Are Forever') introduced an array of performances from the award winning magicians.
The entire night was presented by the charity 'Feed The Children' and will be aired on MyNetwork TV in November in the USA. While exact dates haven’t been announced, the show traditionally airs over the Thanksgiving weekend.
