Billy Kidd jumped on the magic scene not too long ago and has made an impact as one of the few female magicians working in the world today. Her sleight of hand, humour, style, and cheeky charm is what sets her apart from the others.
Her career started as a professional actor in Canada performing in theatre, film and television. She is also classically trained in ballet, tap and hip hop dance as well as the piano. After earning a BFA in Acting from the U of A and continuing her career in the theatre magic started to become a secret passion.
In 2008 Billy left her job, her friends and her country to move to the UK and become a magician. She learned how to street perform under guidance of the famous Gazzo and since then she has performed on numerous TV programmes, Cruise Ships, Corporate events, and Festivals around the world.
In 2009 she was picked to help create and perform the magic for the O2 Load & Go card advert.
In 2012/2013 she starred in Discovery’s Channel’s series Breaking Magic viewed by over 100 million people worldwide.
In 2014/15 she competed in Syfy channels Wizard Wars in the USA. After earning the only standing ovation from Penn & Teller she was then cast as a full time wizard for season 2.
