Magic with Mo is a South African variety show which features magician Mo Magic as he meets celebrities, sports stars and other South Africans, astonishing them at various locations with his magic that has featured him regularly in all forms of media, locally and abroad.
The show follows a similar format to other international TV magic shows, with one exception - it includes an uplifting and inspirational element, where Mo engages with guests, asking them about their careers and to share their unique inspirational message with viewers.
The show thus aims to astonish, entertain and inspire audiences.
Dubbed the "James Bond of Magic" by the media, Mo Magic is an electronic engineer by qualification, who discovered his passion for magic as a hobby at university. It soon evolved into a part time career and in 2010, after working as a project manager in industry, he resigned to focus on his magic.
Mo has appeared on many TV shows including Top Billing, Expresso, Mela and prime time TV news. He has earned multiple accolades for his magic and has performed in numerous countries globally.
His repertoire includes a variety of world class magic and he combines his magical effects with contemporary presentations to connect with and intrigue audiences.
Magic with Mo was created by Mahommed Moorad and is produced by Bongiwe Selane from Blingola Media.
The series was originally title Magic with Mo, but the title was changed to Mo Magic a few weeks out from the premiere, which was scheduled on SABC3 on Saturday 10 October 2015, at 19h00. At the last minute the show was withdrawn from the schedule after the channel discovered they were not able to use the new title (for reasons not disclosed) and thus had to revert to the original show title, Magic with Mo.
