Tony Eng (1946-2008), a self-taught conjurer, toured across the United States and Canada for over forty years.

His father, an emigrant from China, would start a family restaurant in Sidney, British Columbia. After getting a set of cups and balls on his eighteenth birthday, we would do tricks at his family's Beacon Cafe. He was a stage performer, a close-up magician and the proprietor of a magic emporium in downtown Victoria in Canada. Later, his work as a bartender allowed him to perfect his close-up magic.

In 1980, he started performing at the Japanese Village Restaurant on Broughton Street in Victoria during Sunday dinner service, a gig that lasted 20 years.

He purchased of a novelties store and renamed it "Tony's Trick and Joke Shop". He sold the shop in 2005, but continued to perform.[1]

Eng served as president of the Pacific Coast Association of Magicians in 2006 when the conferences was held in Victoria.

His daughter Julie Eng, a Toronto magician, carries on the magic tradition.
