With his imagination kindled at age five by  ‘Mandrake The Magician’ comic books, Nakul Shenoy first took stage as a 15-year-old entertaining large gatherings with his magical shows. Two and a half decades later, this expert magician and hypnotist enthrals audiences like few others can, and progresses along in his self-professed dream to be “a real-life Mandrake”.

Having influenced thousands of business leaders, high achievers, and celebrities through his shows around the world, Nakul counts entertaining Azim Premji and opening for Tony Buzan among his most coveted performances till date. In March 2015, HarperCollins published Nakul’s first book ‘Smart Course in Magic’ to help those interested in learning the art and craft of Magic.

A nine-time TEDx speaker, Nakul is the only Indian to be awarded memberships to the Psychic Entertainers Association (USA) and the British Society of Psychic Entertainers (UK). A ‘Wizards Award’ member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians (USA), he has held memberships to The Magic Circle (London), the American Hypnosis Association (USA), and the International Magicians Society (USA).

A compulsive reader of books and a self-proclaimed teaholic, Nakul is based in Bangalore (India) and tweets as @NakulShenoy.
