Charlie Caper: How Swede It Is

Swedish Magician Charlie Caper is the winner of Sweden's Got Talent 2009 and the $65,000 dollar first prize. He performed Richard Sanders "Interlace" in the video below.

Here is his very funny bio:

"I was born in Sweden at the age of 0 and it wasn't long until my stage debut. 1 years old I was seen on cult Swedish TV show Drömplanket. On my eighth birthday my wellmeaning parents gave me a unicycle with complete disregard for the influence it would have on my young brain

Tricked into magic at the age of 9 I was 14 at my first paid gig as a magician. I was also juggling and fire eating (cleverly given up after a scary burn).

In the last six years I have toured Europe, Asia, Central America, Oceania and North America with a magic show that swings.

The summer of 2007 I was invited to perform at the Street Performers World Championship in Dublin. I was invited back for 2008 and am proud to be one of only three performers ever to be booked twice.

In the summer of 2006 I was asked to perform and organize street magic at the World Championship Of Magic and it ended up being the largest gathering of street magicians in modern times."
