About Donimo Magic

Donimo Boy

Hi, I am Joe Baker magician and entertainer. From a young age I was passionate about magic and theatre. (Yes, that's me age 12, when I first began performing magic at parties...) This love for the performing arts led me to a successful career as a professional magician, clown and jester, traveling the world and performing to audiences on both television and stage. I am so grateful to have such a fascinating career - I never imagined magic would take me to such amazing places.  

Today I enjoy performing magic as Donimo the close up magician, as professional jester Phoenix the Fool or the stage magic and visual comedy of Donimo the silent clown.

Whatever you're celebrating, I look forward to helping you make your event even more magical. 

Donimo's career spans over 30 years.
