On Tuesday 27th March 2018, A British Asian mind reader, Girio, was yet again voted as best performer, when he won The London Society of Magicians’ (LSM’s) Bridger Lewis Stage Competition. Winning the Stage Competition means Girio is now a multi-award winning performer, after winning The LSM’s Close Up Competition just two years ago, in 2016.
Uniquely dressed with his black and white shoes matching his black and white shirt, Girio dazzled the audience in London’s Charing Cross, not only with his attire but also with his incredible feats of mind reading and intuition.
Girio said, “I’m extremely humbled. The fact that people in the audience voted for me as the best performer on the night means a lot. Only two years ago in 2016 I won The LSM’s Close Up Competition, where the same thing happened and so much has happened since then. Only a few days before my Stage Competition win I also performed my second show at The London Improv Theatre in Finchley Road for The Magicians Showcase, to a packed audience. In terms of numbers, my biggest performance on stage though (since winning the Close Up Competition), was when I performed to around 1,500 people at The Darji Mitra Mandal’s Sammelan Event at Harrow Leisure Centre. It was great to be part of such a huge event that supported Asian talent and the Asian community. The support I’ve had from the Asian Community has been phenomenal.”
Shortly after Girio’s Close Up Competition win, he had his first performance for The Darji Mitra Mandal at their Friday Club event. Shortly after Girio’s Stage Competition win, he’ll be performing again for the first time – this time at The East Finchley Festival, which takes place on Sunday 24th June 2018 at Cherry Tree Wood in East Finchley.
