If you are planning an event that requires professional and world-class entertainment, you will be glad to hear that Alexander offers a hassle-free and customized performance that will leave your guests speechless!

From small beginnings, his magic has taken Alexander May across the world…

from New York, Paris & Las Vegas to Monaco, Los Angeles & Istanbul. From 2000 people in the auditoriums of multinational companies, to 2 million viewers live on national television; together with business openings, fund-raisers, team building sessions, and much more in between.

Now, with more than 20 years of performing experience, his success stems from the fact that he does not want the audience to just see something – he wants them to have an unforgettable experience. His main work is on the corporate events scene, at gala dinners, functions, road-shows etc, as well as fund-raising events for schools & community groups.

He has been the entertainer for Southern Sun Hotels (Tsogo Sun) in the Cape Town/West Coast region, where he did twice daily shows at six hotels (including Club Mykonos) during peak seasons. Alexander May has also performed regular runs at the GrandWest Casino & the former Ratanga Junction. For the University of Stellenbosch’s Woordfees he teamed up with Jacques Le Sueur for a commissioned show called „ABRA!‟ which was a sell-out show.

Alexander May has made numerous appearances on national television, including “SA‟s Got Talent” (season 2 & 5), “Hectic Nine-9” on SABC2, “Jou Show with Emo & Wicus” on Kyknet and “Expresso Morning Show” on SABC3.

In 2016, Alexander May was a feature and headline performer in Season 2 Of “Monday Night Magic” at the Cape Town Magic Club. All 7 shows he performed in sold out. That same year he had the unique opportunity to spend 7 weeks travelling through the USA, where he met with magic legends David Copperfield and Penn & Teller, visited the exclusive invitation-only Magic Castle in Hollywood, and even performed a special show for staff of New York State University. In 2018, Alexander May travelled inside South Africa for performances in Johannesburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth, Plettenberg Bay, Langebaan, Upington, Mossel Bay to name a few. He also toured in the USA, including Nevada, Utah, Arizona and New York.

When he is not busy performing, Alexander runs his own company called Alexander May Creative Worx, which publishes and creates magic accessories and props that are distributed and sold globally. He also spends his time writing, travelling and involved in the allied arts. In January 2011 he attended the Gala Awards Ceremony of the 35th International Circus Festival in Monte Carlo, hosted by H.S.H. Princess Stephanie of Monaco.
