What is the difference between a Magician and an Illusionist?


Illusionist is the umbrella term, because both a magician and an illusionist create an illusion, something that is not what it seems. The most famous Dutch illusionist is Hans Klok. Yet Mindfuck's Victor Mids is also an illusionist. What I do is very similar to Mindfuck.


A magician does smaller effects than an illusionist. He is the master of sleight of hand and distraction. Card tricks, coins, and three cups with the ball are often part of his equipment. Well-known magicians are Dynamo (although he also does bigger illusions like walking on the river), Penn & Teller and Fred Kaps.


Brainmagic and mind reading are important parts of the mentalist. It is a misunderstanding that a mentalist is psychic, which is why I hardly use that term myself. A mentalist creates the illusion of a sixth sense, making it seem that he can predict the future and know more about you than is possible. The best and most famous mentalist is Derren Brown.

What is an illusionist?

What is an illusionist anyway? The meaning of an illusionist is an artist who makes the impossible possible. He shows illusions, he makes the impossible seem as real as possible. Well-known illusions are sawing through and restoring a girl, making things and people float. Reading thoughts, predicting the future and conjuring things up. It is all not really possible, but if you look at a good illusionist it seems as if it is all really possible.

Other famous Dutch illusionists

Several professional illusionists are active in the Netherlands. The Dutch illusionists are also well regarded worldwide.

Victor Mids

With his TV program Mindf * ck he became a national celebrity in one fell swoop. As a magician and mind reader he provides insight into how people function. Trained as a doctor, he combines psychology with illusions.

Hans Klok

The well-known Dutch illusionist on the big stage and the fastest internationally. With his waving mane, dance show and lots of fireworks, he makes a spectacle show.

Hans Kazan

The Dutch TV magician from the 90s that inspired many of today's magicians to also start doing magic.
