Collins always wanted to be an entertainer since his childhood. From entertaining his friends and visitors at home, he graduated to having private shows, and at the age of fifteen he created a You Tube channel of his own to showcase his magic skills.
His career as a magician and an entertainer took a giant leap when he participated in ‘America’s Got Talent’ show, hosted by celebrity, Howie Mandel. He auditioned in Episode 802 of the show, where he borrowed a dollar bill from Howie, had the serial number noted, burnt it to ashes and made it reappear in a sealed popcorn bag on the table of the host. The number of the note that reappeared was verified and found to be the same as that of the note that was burnt. With his innovative mindset, Collins changed the manner in which magic was presented on the ‘America’s Got Talent’ show and set new standards for amazement and entertainment.
As his popularity soared, he was asked to be a presenter on the 2014 Teen Choice Awards, where he took centre stage with superstars like Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift and Ansel Elgort.

With his magical skills, Collins has gathered more than 23 million subscribers to his YouTube channel, which has a variety of vlogs, challenges, DIY projects and collaborations alongside his tricks. His female fans have a social group of their own and call themselves ‘Keypers’.
