In recent years, J C Sum & ’Magic Babe’ Ning have cemented themselves as Asia’s elite magic duo through their mega illusion events and illusion shows.

Their mega illusions include teleporting up a 50-storey skyscraper in 5 seconds, teleporting 3 spectators across the iconic Singapore River in 2.5 seconds and teleporting a car in 8.5 seconds. There are also the current world record holders for “Most Number of Illusions Performed in 5 Minutes”.

Channel News Asia highlighted that they represent “The New Faces of an Age-Old Art Form” and The Straits Times acknowledged them as “Asia’s most famous illusionists”.

In July 2009, the International Magicians Society (U.S.A.) awarded the duo coveted Merlin Awards for “Original Male & Female Illusionist of the Year” (respectively). They are the first Singapore illusionists to be awarded Merlin Awards. Past winners of the Merlin award include David Copperfield, Criss Angel, Siegfried & Roy and Penn & Teller.
