   Hailing from a family with a history in magic, it seems inevitable that Alexander May would become involved in the art of magic. He has been ‘performing’ since he was in primary school. His first real performances was at high school, when he started featuring at various school functions, such as fund-raisers, award evenings etc.

   From these small beginnings, his magic has taken him across the world - from New York, Paris & Las Vegas to Monaco, Los Angeles & Istanbul. Now, with more than 19 years of performing experience, his success stems from the fact that he does not want his audience to just see something but to have an unforgettable experience.

   He has done three one-man stage productions - One Wand Wonder in 2003, Terms & Conditions Apply in 2005, and MAGIC:ONE in 2007. In June 2009, he teamed up with Glendini, an escape artist, creating a show called ‘Maximum Magic’. For the University of Stellenbosch’s 2014 Woordfees he teamed up with Jacques Le Sueur for a commissioned show called ‘ABRA!’

   His main work is on the corporate events scene - at dinners, functions, and exhibitions for many of the country’s top blue-chip companies. During 2011 he was chosen as entertainer for Southern Sun Hotels in the Cape Town/West Coast region, where he did twice daily shows at six hotels (including Club Mykonos Casino) during peak seasons. Alexander May was also booked to perform 17 shows at the GrandWest Casino & Entertainment World in Cape Town during December 2012/ January 2013.

   Alexander May has made a couple of appearances on national television, including “SA’s Got Talent” (seasons 2 and 5), “Hectic Nine-9” on SABC2, “Jou Show” on Kyknet and “Expresso Morning Show” on SABC3.

   In 2016, Alexander May was a feature and headline performer in Season 2 Of “Monday Night Magic” at the Cape Town Magic Club. All 7 shows he performed in sold out.

   When he is not busy performing, Alexander spends his time writing, travelling and involved in the allied arts. In January 2011 he attended the Gala Awards Ceremony of the 35th International Circus Festival in Monte Carlo, hosted by H.S.H. Princess Stephanie of Monaco.

   Because his aim is to entertain, and not just to do magic, his performances are nothing like the ‘normal’ magic show. He doesn’t want the audience to just see something, he wants them to have an experience. He does not tell jokes, he literally blends the comedy into the magic, resulting in a very entertaining, professional and politically sensitive presentation.
