(Leicester, England: 5th July, 1957 - )
Wayne Dobson is an English magician, who became well-known through various television appearances in the late 1980s and 1990s. At the height of his fame he had his own television series Wayne Dobson - A Kind of Magic. More recently he has become known as a campaigner for multiple sclerosis charities.
In 1977 he won joint first prize in the close-up competition at the I.B.M. British Ring Convention. This led to his television debut on the BBC Television show Blue Peter. Encouraged by this success Dobson decided at the age of 21 to become a full-time professional magician. Dobson had developed a style of magic based around fast-talking patter and one-liner humour.
