MANILA, Philippines -- "Umagang Kay Ganda" co-host Jeffrey Tam will be competing at this year's FISM World Championship of Magic from July 9 to 14 in Blackpool, England.

Created in 1948, Fédération Internationale des Sociétés Magiques or FISM is an international body that brings together the world's leading magic societies, including the Inner Magic Club of the Philippines, where Tam belongs.

As a magician, Tam already performed in France, Spain and Malaysia. He is also the first Filipino magician to have performed at the UK's only magic bar in Bristol, England.

Tam is also the first Filipino magician to be featured in Bristol's leading DVD magazine, Five on One.

In 2009, Tam bagged the Close-up Magic Champion award at the International Magic Extravaganza in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
