Niberco (December 22, 1925 - January 18, 1993), born Nico van Berkel in Rotterdam was a second generation Dutch magician (his father was Bercelini).[1]


In 1947, he won Grand Prix at the Paris FISM, whose work with cards, cigarettes, thimbles and balls earned a standing ovation.

Over the next four decades, Niberco had a successful career, first as a solo performer and later with his partner, Bob Haleber, as The Niberco Brothers.[2]
