Virtual Magic Academy with The Amazing Max

About Max

/

MAX DARWIN (Creator/Actor/Magician) first appeared on stage before he could walk!  He loves theater, magic, ninjas, and the sound of children laughing.  His stage show, The Amazing Max, has been playing in NYC Off Broadway and touring across the county since 2011.  He can be seen as a featured artist on Season 3 & 4 of “Brain Games” (National Geographic Channel) and magic consultant for "Gotham" (Fox) and "American's Got Talent" (NBC).  

As an actor TV credits include "FBI", "Sneaky Pete", "Girls", “Blindspot”, “Black Box”, and hosting the hit Nickelodeon show “Game Farm”. He has also appeared in various national TV commercials such as T-Mobile with DJ Khaled, Axe Body Spray, Verizon, Bank of America, and Coca-Cola.

In 2018 Max was selected as an artist in residence as part of The New Victory Theater’s Labworks program and collaborated with Academy Award Winner Alexander Dinelaris ("Birdman"). 

During COVID-19 Max has stepped onto a virtual stage to perform perhaps his most incredible feat ever: Getting kids truly excited about learning something and – in the process – showing them how to believe in themselves.  Max is mentoring students all over the U.S. and as far away as Mexico, Finland, Kuwait, and Hong Kong.
