Born in Quebec, Alain Choquette dreams of becoming a famous magician from his earliest age. Specialised in “close-up magic”, he handles card tricks with skill and bases his shows on a close collaboration with his audience. With humour and poetry, Alain Choquette offers another approach to magic while collaborating with renowned artists like the famous magician David Copperfield.
In his early stages, Alain presented his close-up magic tricks to the most popular talk show in Quebec television "Ad Lib". Starting from 1993, he multiplied performances in Quebec and in the United States. His first show “Première apparition” was a great success in Montreal with 200 performances within two years.
This dazzling celebrity brought him then to the American stages. He was invited to participate in the TV special "World's Greatest Magic" broadcast by NBC and watched by over 26 million viewers, and then to join the American tour 50th anniversary of the prestigious Radio City Music Hall in New York.
In 2003, he presented “Alain Choquette et compagnie” at the Casino of Montreal, and mystified Montrealers with “La Disparition des Douze” in which he removed 12 randomly selected people within the public. This trick gave him a worldwide reputation.
Alain Choquette crossed the Atlantic in 2013 to seduce the French audience through his participation at the Comedy Magic Show of Arturo Brachetti. He came back to France in late 2014, and since then has been presenting his new show “Drôlement magique” across the country.
