Max Darwin was born to perform. He began charming audiences at the young age of 5 months, traveling all over the United States alongside his parents who were professional street performers specializing in clowning, mime, juggling, and magic. Throughout the years, Max has emerged as one of the most sought-after magic artists in the country. He performs hundreds of shows a year with a client roster including notable celebrities such as Uma Thurman, Diana Ross, William Baldwin, Steven A. Cohen, Chazz Palminteri, Ethan Hawke, Jeremy Sisto, and Tommy Hilfiger.
Currently Max can be seen as a guest artist and magic consultant on Season 3 of BRAIN GAMES, airing on National Geographic Channel. His TV credits also include hosting the hit Nickelodeon show GAME FARM! He has also appeared in various national TV commercials for products like Axe Body Spray, Verizon, Bank of America, and Coca-Cola.
He also released his first instructional magic video, “Magic in Minutes”, where Max teaches kids ages 5 & up how to fill their everyday lives with wonder and perform magic with ordinary objects found right in their own home.

Hamlet comes from a long line of mind reading pigs. When not performing with Max he spends his free time taking naps, rolling in mud, and making himself as smelly as possible. He likes fast cars, practical jokes, and starting trends via twitter. #Hamlet
