Abracadabra from the Beginning
Born as Aditya Pambudhi in Jakarta, Indonesia on June 19, 1980, Demian Aditya’s age is 36. The magician has been at it since he was 10 years old after teaching himself magic and slight of hand. He knew he had talent after winning both the Mr. Congeniality and Favourite awards after entering the Abang & None Jakarta Kepulauan Seribu in 2002. His first TV debut was in 2007 with his show Demian Sang Illusionist (Demian the Illusionist) for two years, before hosting another TV show called House of Demian. In April 2010, Aditya was also featured in the show Gara-Gara Magic (Because of Magic), which boosted his fame in Indonesia, and made him want to shift to prime-time TV. He often performs for big events like Award Ceremonies and channel anniversaries.

Demian Aditya on America’s Got Talent
Aditya surprised the audience the second he got on stage. He made things even more intriguing after revealing that he could die if things went wrong —which was a definite possibility considering he only practiced once before! During his audition, Aditya was restrained with handcuffs and metal bars and put inside a glass box that would drop 900-lbs of sand on him within two minutes if he could not get out.
This was not all the illusionist did! Things were looking bad as Aditya worked on his neck restraint. Before the audience knew what was going on, the sand fell, and the magician could not be seen. While the audience was left speechless, Howie Mandel managed to ask, “Is that a problem?” before two men rushed on stage, one with a hammer, and broke the glass in an attempt to free Aditya. What made the trick so amazing? The man with the hammer turned out to be none other than Demian Aditya.
