The Dutch-American duo Scott & Muriel call themselves The Accidental Illusionists. Since 1999 they make shows in which they combine the art of magic with modern, visual comedy. At the FISM World Championships in 2000 Scott & Muriel were the very first comedy-act ever to win the highest award in magic, the prestigious FISM GRAND PRIX.
They performed in more than 25 countries, with performances in the Cirque du Soleil, the Just for Laughs Festival, World Circus Carré (Amsterdam) and twice in the Circus Festival in Monte Carlo. They design their own with original illusions executed by two hilarious characters. In 2009 Scott & Muriel won the Golden Clown at the World Festival of Clowns in Russia. They also appeared in the famous Dutch TV programme De Wereld Draait Door, presented by Matthijs van Nieuwkerk, who was sawn in half for a live audience.
With more than two hours of original acts Scott & Muriel travel the world and perform in theatres, circuses, festivals and at parties and cruise ships. Scott & Muriel made four grand tours and participated with great success in many TV programmes, including six (!) “Got Talent”-shows.
