#54 Marcel Oudejans – INSIDE THE WORLD OF MAGIC

Listen to Stitcher

I have always been fascinated by Magic. It really drive me nuts. Whenever I see Marcel Oidejans, David Blaine or any other magician doing their thing, I feel very small. That’s why I had to meet Marcel for a chat.

Marcel Oudejans has over 20 years of experience working in the meetings, events, and conference industry, as a specialist corporate entertainer and speaker. He is one of only a handful of presenters in the world who is able to provide a bespoke, custom-designed presentation for conferences, gala dinners and corporate events.

Marcel is also the founder of the Cape Town Comedy Club.
