Ep 36: justsaying with Cosentino – Celebrating 10 Years of Success with Decennium

Ten years after becoming an overnight sensation on Australia’s Got Talent, Cosentino‘s star has only shone brighter.

Cosentino was the first Australian magician to have his own TV shows. He has written, produced, and starred in nine highly successful prime-time specials, which have now been broadcast in over 40 countries and seen by over 750 million people.

Widely acclaimed as “ONE OF THE WORLD’S BEST MAGICIANS” by CNN, and praised for having “ONE OF THE BEST ESCAPE ACTS I HAVE EVER SEEN” by Simon Cowell, Cosentino is undeniably one of the reigning stars of the magic world.

A winner of multiple Merlin Awards, the highest accolades in the magic industry, Cosentino has been awarded both the ‘International Magician of the Year’ and the ‘International Escape Artist of the Year’.

Our conversation with Cosentino discussed his illustrious career, and he delved into the transformation of magic as an art form over the years. He even performs an astonishing magic trick during the call.

In collaboration with Sands Theatre, and presented by Base Entertainment Asia, Cosentino is making a triumphant return to Singapore to celebrate a decade of unparalleled magic with his best-ever production – Cosentino: Decennium – The Greatest Live Magic Show.

When asked about his upcoming show, ‘Decennium’, he expressed, “The last 10 years have been incredible for me, both professionally and personally. This new show is a celebration of everything I have achieved over the last decade.”

“All of the pieces in this show have been chosen for a reason as they represent a significant time and place within my career. This is the best production I have ever created.”

Running from the 24th of August to the 3rd of September 2023, this show promises to eclipse his last highly-successful season of ‘Cosentino: Anything is Possible’ in 2017. This time, he promises even more jaw-dropping, mind-bending acts that you absolutely cannot miss.

Among the many sensational acts lined up for the show, three highlights are:

FLAMING JAWS: A nerve-wracking escape act that will leave you at the edge of your seats, wondering if Cosentino will beat the clock and save himself from a fiery demise.

STABBED: In this original creation, Cosentino tests his psychic abilities by attempting to locate the correct keys among hundreds to free himself before razor-sharp knives drop from above.

STRANGER THINGS: Cosentino defies the laws of physics by seemingly melting his entire body through a solid steel plate. This jaw-dropping act challenges our perceptions of reality and the nature of the world around us.

Tickets for Cosentino: Decennium – The Greatest Live Magic Show are on sale at Marina Bay Sands Ticketing and SISTIC.
