Teller from Penn & Teller is the Silent Magician and of course he is the one everyone should thinks of for this topic. Teller has done a tremendous job of remaining silent for his entire career. While Penn is the mouth for the group, and it is a genius way to perform, as it gives their act the best of both worlds, but the issue that it brings to this is that duo acts are essentially married in their business partner relationship for their entire careers. You will never see a Penn Show with out Teller same goes for Siegfried & Roy, David & Leeman, etc.
As for a new mentalist on the scene that is a Silent performer, there is Aaron Crow who has a been drawing a great deal of attention especially since his performances on Britain's Got Talent. Aaron Crow mixes extreme danger into his acts while performing masterfully skilled slight of hand which he passes off as mentalist performance in many cases.
For a Silent magician the music for the performance is an overlooked but absolutely Crucial element to their performances. I myself have been a comedy magician for 17 years and I love the thrill of interacting with the audience...it wasn't until 2 years ago that I started performing stage acts that were silent performances and it was from my shows at Six Flags Over Georgia for their freight fest seasons. This will be my 3rd year performing for Six Flags and I thoroughly enjoy every moment of these shows! Especially because I get to perform as a silent magician. I never knew how much more thrilling and suspense a magic show has when the magician is silent. The audience is truly on the edge of their seats completely captivated and mesmerized by the performance when the Magician is first of all doing something that is amazing and when the music that is played is something that enhances the suspense of the performance.
It's just like going to see a suspenseful movie...when the theater starts to play the music and you can feel it in your chest just before the climax hits. That same feeling is achieved by a silent magician and I simply love the reaction you get from an audience performing without a single word spoken.
