Steve Spade was born in Limerick, Ireland, and has quickly established himself as a firm favourite on the Irish celebrity circuit. He combines top-drawer sleight of hand skills with psychological subtleties and great comic timing.
His daring escapes – being burnt at the stake, or escaping from a sealed box underwater – have garnered national headlines and he has become known as Ireland’s Houdini as a result.
Steve has been doing magic since his childhood, performing at every opportunity on the streets and in the pubs and clubs of his native city of Limerick. He also worked the kids’s party circuit, honing his skills in front of the toughest audience of them all!
He followed that success with a stunt Houdini would have been proud of – he was sealed in a wooden crate and dropped into the River Shannon in front of over 2,000 people. He escaped safely.
