Nicholas J Johnson is a liar and a cheat

Nicholas J Johnson, a multi-award winning magician and best-selling author, is back in Melbourne this July to teach you how to become a world-class swindler!

The Confidence Artist is a critically acclaimed magic/comedy show coming to Northcote Town Hall as part of this year's exciting Melbourne Magic Festival line-up. Tickets are now on sale!

Nicholas J Johnson is an expert on fraud and deception who has been exposing swindlers for major companies (Microsoft, ANZ, Sony) and top rated television shows (TODAY, Kids WB, The Real Hustle) for over two decades.

In his latest show The Confidence Artist, he invites you to join him for a crash course in con artistry. Discover the art of telling a good lie, how to cheat at cards without getting caught, why people fall for the oldest tricks in the books and learn a long con so baffling, it's still fooling suckers five hundred years after its invention!

A college for con artists, a school for scoundrels and a TedTalk for tricksters, Nicholas J. Johnson's The Confidence Artist is a magic show with a difference. Just don't trust him!

"Hilarious…Nicholas is as good a laugh as he is a con artist" – Herald Sun

"Despite fooling us over and over again, you just can't help but like him." – Squirrel Comedy

"There's more to this performer than meets the eye (or often doesn't when the sleight of hand gets out of hand)." – Canberra Times
