Wesley Upfold began his career in entertainment aboard the cruiseships in the Caribbean and Mediterranean, where he worked for two years, before returning to South Africa. In 2008, he moved to Auckland, New Zealand, where he now lives.
Dave Upfold started doing magic as a hobby, and it gradually developed into one of his central passions. He adds a touch of comedy to what he does, and as such, is a great close up magician, providing fantastic entertainment to corporate events.
The Upfold Family Comedy Magic Show.
Dave, Wesley, Hannah, Isabella and Nathan
The show has attracted huge crowds at Shopping Malls, Holiday Programs, Corporate Functions and Fundraising events.
It is suitable for the young and older people alike, or for anyone who loves " Magic "
You will be amazed by "How do they do it".
Wesley provides stage illusion shows, as well as close-up magic, and workshops which are great for team building and events.
As an Illusionist, his shows lend an air of mystery and excitement to any gathering, as he cuts a girl in half, or locks her inside a box and jabs swords through her. He is able to produce anything from the size of a peanut to the size of a motor vehicle, from an empty box, making him invaluable for corporate product launches. Making the Chairperson or MC or guest speaker appear out of an empty box provides a truly sensational start to any conference or event.
Together, Wesley and Dave Upfold are able to produce a vehicle from an empty box, a spellbinding illusion which gives a great slant to any car launch. In the words of Topcar Magazine, “With plenty of smoke, coloured lights, a great bang and a touch of magic, the Sante Fe was unveiled” (December 2000/January 2001, p.50) for Hyundai, at the Auto Africa Show 2000.
