Marc Spelmann is a magician, illusionist, mentalist and viral star of Britain’s Got Talent (2007-). He hit the big time in 2018 when his audition went viral, earning Ant & Dec’s golden buzzer with his story of overcoming adversity.

He has over 14,000 followers on Twitter, 155,000 on Instagram, 20,000 on Facebook and over 11,000 subscribers on YouTube, and he wows them all time and time again with his seemingly impossible routines.

Marc Spelmann’s viral audition involved asking the four judges to choose random things including a colour of crayon and a random word in a book. He then played a video explaining that his wife had been diagnosed with cancer and both her and their daughter had to go through chemotherapy. After the video, he revealed the correct choices the judges had chosen, including the random word being spoken by his daughter two years previous. After his success in the UK, he finished as a semi-finalist on America’s Got Talent: The Champions (2019-2022), including a collaboration with AGT winner Shin Lim.
Despite only recently becoming a successful public figure, Marc has over 20 years’ experience in performing, magic and writing. Self-described as a ‘mystery artist’, Marc combines the secrets of being a magician, the deductive techniques of a mind reader and the showmanship of an illusionist to create truly impossible performances.
Marc’s small close-up meet and greets span private dinners, media events, cocktail parties and product launches. Usually reserved for more intimate occasions, Marc has impressed and baffled presidents, prime ministers, royalty and global business moguls.
Every ‘Marc Spelmann on Stage’ show is bespoke and uniquely prepared for that particular client. He is able to include any client-specific messages or company ethos into the show, along with fun interactive elements to compel his audience.
The mere presence of the masked ‘X’ at an event is a showstopper. ‘Un’X’plainable’ is an innovative, thought-provoking, immersive and interactive feast for your eyes, mind and soul.
