When, in 1964, Vanni
saw George "Phantom" Gatt, a Maltese Magician of the 50s and
60s perform "live" he was greatly influenced. They remained
good friends until George's demise. When he was 16 he appeared
on Television and since then the number of shows increased considerably.
In 1970 he met Mary
Anne while performing in a youth festival. She became his regular
partner and a couple of years later, after Vanni graduated from
University, they broke into the Cabaret scene. They worked in
top nightspots with international artistes like Rolf Harris,
Paul Daniels, Billy McComb and Ken Goodwin. He became known
mostly for his pleasant presentation of baffling tricks and
for introducing incredible Grand Illusions in Cabaret. In the
meantime the number of television programmes increased and he
became not just a presenter but a television personality and
a household name.
In 1976 he married
Mary Anne and started living in San Gwann. Since then they had
a son, Konrad, who is 21 and a girl, Davinia, 18. Vanni Pule`
is known for his versatility and has worked in most of Malta's
top hotels, in advertisements, stage shows, films, Television
Sit-Coms and Magicians' Conventions. He has also lectured for
various Magical Societies and had his original ideas published
in International Magic magazines and books.
