Lee Cohen – the Magician
Lee Cohen is an Australian magician, based in Melbourne, Australia.
Her father was a magician and Lee had an enviable childhood helping him with his performances and meeting other magicians.
Lee actually became involved with magic at around the age of 5. (current record on this site for starting age -). Lee began assisting her father in stage acts from the age of 8!
Lee is a magician that uses a troupe of animals (she has doves, rabbits, and a guinea pig – who apparently thinks he is a rabbit).
Lee also performs in character as Trixy (30’s femme fatale- with a “New Yawk’ accent) for theme type styled nights, and for children as Kobi the Clown.
Lee has also studied music, visual and performing arts- which brings an elegance to her performances.
Lee has been a presenter on television. Which means that Lee is actually multi- talented, with experience in Magic, Music, Acting, Hosting, Presenting and many areas of Production (art direction, make-up and hair design, costume design and prop design).
Lee has a few regular characters that she performs as, the latest as a Magical Fairy in her production of “the Fairy Magic Show”.
Lee is also known for performing with her best Rabbit friend, Norman E. Normous (professional magic bunny) and a host of furry and feathered friends.
