“As a showman, my goal is to create an unusual situational comedy.”





Javi Benitez is a experience and very flexible magicomedian with great skills handling almost everything and with great touches of improvisation. He loves to make people laugh and have fun while playing with magic.

23 years studing magic and more than 15 as a professional, this ex-advertiser is one of the most renowed magicians in his country.

Javi has the uncanny ability to make spectators be the stars of the show.

During his show he mixes laughter, play and mystery, leaving viewers spookely happy!

As a stand-up magicomedian & MC his fresh magic and situational comedy with the spectators is unique.

As a close-up magician he has no equal. His card magic pieces are superb and his improvisation with common objects is unbelievable.

But most important is the atmosphere of happiness.

    Javi!!! Just saw you at the magic castle. Me and my friends laughed so hard that we cried. Your comedy and performance were spot on and your magic is spectacular. YOU were worth the price of admission. Thank you for a night we will never forget. I hope to see another one of your shows in the future. Till then, keep doing what you’re doing, because you’re exceptional.

    Javi, I’m a member of Magic Castle, just saw you on Fool Us. Usually I can go back and watch and dissect an illusion. After watching your performance with the face changing cards, I knew watching again wouldn’t reveal anything. I saw moves but wow it sure looked magical and how you handle those cards is simply amazing. Inspiring.
