I am delighted and honoured that the Masters Of Magic have announced that they will be giving me a Golden Grolla award for my work into psychology and illusion.

Established in 1953, this is one of the oldest awards in the entertainment world, with previous recipients including Federico Fellini, David Copperfield, Paul Daniels, Dynamo, David Blaine, David Berglas, Arturo Brachetti and Silvan.

This year the other recipient is the multi-talented actor, director and magician, Andy Nyman. Andy co-created the hit stage show ‘Ghost Stories’, has directed several Derren Brown shows, and recently took the lead role in the West-End musical, ‘Fiddler On The Roof’. The two of us met over 20 years ago when we created and performed a Victorian seance show together, and so I am delighted that he is a fellow awardee.

Both awards will be presented at a ceremony in May, and if you are into magic please come along for four days of shows, lectures and talks.


  1. Well done Richard, well deserved 🙂 Gary (remember from the Richard & Judy show) all still going great in life 🙂

  2. Congratulations Mr. Wiseman! You and your work deserve much adulations. I am very happy for you! I wish I could attend the event. We will be thinking about you in May.

  3. I have never failed to be entertained,educated or amused by your work.Congrats- I think that,s a British compliment 😉

  4. Hello Richard

    I don’t know if this email will reach you, but if it does I would like to say that you provided two of my best hours at Blackpool.

    Thank You

    Rob Slater
