abraKIDabra is RTÉJr’s magnificent new magic show where each week magician Joe Daly performs comedic and mesmerizing magic tricks for an animated audience of kids. Joe can also be found in his magic workshop teaching budding magicians a cool new trick!

The 15 part series was filmed on location in The Ark, cultural centre for children in Dublin’s Temple Bar with kids from all over Ireland, aged between 5 and 9 years. In every episode, funny man Joe Daly performs and teaches magic to kids in the theatre and at home.

Joe Daly is one of the best magicians Ireland has to offer and in abraKIDabra he performs a modern magic show with a twist. Young audiences all over  the country love his colourful magic tricks intertwined with his funny slapstick humour.

I had an amazing time making abraKIDabra. The kids involved were fantastic. Their energy and enthusiasm was infectious. I’m delighted that children at home are going to get the chance to see my magic show on RTÉjr and learn how the tricks are done. I hope it inspires them to become young magicians!Joe Daly
