About Steve

Steve Spade was born in Limerick, Ireland, and has quickly established himself as a firm favourite on the Irish celebrity circuit. He combines top-drawer sleight of hand skills with psychological subtleties and great comic timing.

His daring escapes – being burnt at the stake, or escaping from a sealed box underwater – have garnered national headlines and he has become known as Ireland’s Houdini as a result.

Steve has been doing magic since his childhood, performing at every opportunity on the streets and in the pubs and clubs of his native city of Limerick. He also worked the kids’s party circuit, honing his skills in front of the toughest audience of them all!

He followed that success with a stunt Houdini would have been proud of – he was sealed in a wooden crate and dropped into the River Shannon in front of over 2,000 people. He escaped safely.

This led to a regular slot on The Daily Show(RTE 1) in the spring of 2012. Steve has also appeared on TV3’s Come Dine With Me. For Steve the intimate miracle of close-up magic is at the heart of his art.

He has wowed many celebrities, including Mike Tyson, Rihanna, Saoirse Ronan. No after-show party is complete without his manipulations – just ask Florence & The Machine, Calvin Harris, Metallica, The Coronas, Bressie, Glen Hansard, and many more.

He has stunned 10,000 people with his illusions at Electric Picnic in 2017 & 2018. He recently performed his most staring stunt in Northern Ireland, tied up in a chair with 100ft of steel chain, locked into a Mobile home with only moments to escape before it subsequently exploded. Once again Ireland’s very own Houdini left people amazed when he escaped safely been described as one of the most daring stunts to have ever been performed in Ireland.

Steve is unbelievable. I booked him as a surprise for my husband and our guests at our wedding in December. I Honestly couldn’t recommend him enough. Not only was he the talk of the day, he was so kind and professional the entire time he was there. His talent is second to none and has to be seen to be believed.
