SCOTT & MURIEL
Hello! We are Scott & Muriel, the Accidental Illusionists.
What’s an Accidental Illusionist? It’s an illusionist that doesn’t take himself – or herself – too seriously!
And while it may look like everything in our show is happening by accident – it isn’t! Everything is carefully planned
out and constructed in order to create the perfect illusion of a hilarious disaster.
We believe that surprising people, making them laugh, and then amazing them with some incredible magic, is a
terrific recipe for making people happy.
In real life we are Muriel Brugman of the Netherlands, and Scott Nelson, originally from California (but now a
Dutch citizen as well!)
Our shows consist of original illusions that we created ourselves, combined with hysterical non-verbal comedy.
We began working together in 1999. One year later we travelled to Lisbon, Portugal, to compete in the World Championships of Magic.
Out of 140 entries from around the world, ours was judged to be the very best act, and were awarded the prestigious Grand Prix.
And so we became the first comedy duo in history to win the title:
