Born in Cork city and from a family of seven kids. I was a very curious child that had a vivid imagination which progressed on to an obsession with learning magic tricks. To date, I am now a full-time professional award winning magician, specialising in close up magic and regarded one of Irelands best sleight of hand artist. In 2009 I set up his successful company “Gerard Kearney Entertainments” where I provide my professional service to various functions around Ireland and beyond. Please see www.corkmagician.ie for more information. I was introduced to acting at the age of twelve when I got the part of “Big Con’ in the Warner Bros feature “The War of the Buttons”. With no previous training, acting was something I was very comfortable with and I successfully got other parts in productions above without representation. SKILLS Sleight of hand at an expert level with coins, cards and other small objects. Unique understanding and practitioner of the art of mentalism which uses mental deception, psychology and subconscious suggestion. Accomplished soccer player at an amateur level.
