Scottish magician Ryan Davidson wows with incredible card prediction

You must have heard of Scottish magician Ryan Davidson by now.

No? Then watch his jaw-dropping card trick and mind-blowing ‘mobile phone-in-ballloon’ performances.

Today’s trick is truly magical – we won’t give it away, you’ll have to watch the video above, but he leaves two young ladies, who were shopping in Glasgow’s Silverburn shopping centre, literally speechless.

Ryan, 26, is a rising star in the magic world, following on from the likes of Dynamo and David Blaine, who have sparked renewed interest in the skilled art.

The Castlemilk lad may be a fan of the magic masters, but it was actually a chance meeting with a hustler, while on holiday in Greece, that ignited his own interest in magic.

When Ryan returned from soaking up the sun, his research into modern con artists and card cheats inevitably crossed over into the art of magic and he has been a serious student of the art ever since.

Mastering his art through a host of corporate events, weddings and parties, the buzz surrounding Ryan recently lead to a four-night run at Glasgow’s Buff club, which sold out within hours of tickets being released.

Due to demand, further dates were added and they too have gone like hot cakes.
