Who's the best magician in Singapore? Or anywhere for the matter?
Magic is an art form. And art is subjective. Yet you often hear people say that Mona Lisa is the greatest painting of all time or that Shawshank Redemption is the best movie of all time.
But none of these are.
They can't be.
In order for something to be "the best ever", you inevitably need to compare it to the rest. But how can you compare one magician to another when they perform entirely different tricks or routines to entirely different venues and audiences?
Asking who's the Best Magician in Singapore is like asking which is your favourite child. Even if you had one, you probably can't say for sure. (much less post it publicly). A better way is to recognize that many performers specialize in unique performing styles and genres. Whether one performer is better suited for you depends entirely on your event.
Here's a list of some of the most experienced and accomplished performers in Singapore you need to hear about
