Of current performers, surely Derren Brown has to be the most elegant? The theatricality of his live shows is incredible. The staging is luxurious and beautifully put together. And don't forget the full formal evening dress. A good measure of a performer's elegance should be whether he looks comfortable in his costume. In Derren's case, he's so comfortable you don't even notice anything strange about it.

In terms of grace, I think Ponta has to be the most graceful performer out there. Incredible economy of movement and smoothness. I'd love to see him in person.

In terms of charm, though, I think the US carries it with Whit Haydn, or more specifically Pop Haydn. There's a real old-world elegance and warmth about Pop. You're happy when he fools you; that's hard to achieve.

Yes, Derren Brown knows how to dress like a Gentleman and talks rather sophisticated, thus impressing the audience, but Channing Pollock and Cardini were "old school" Gentlemen. Still I like Derren for being "old-fashioned"; acting in his own typical way. I wonder whether he is one of the "last unicorns", considering that most magicians of my generation apparently have to wear a basecap, baggy-pants and do street magic...

Guy Hollingworth, Tommy Wonder, Channing Pollock, Cyril Takayama comes to mind when it comes to elegant magic.

Derren for sure.
