Dr Scott Lewis was in Sydney to perform his hypnosis act alongside six other performers in a show which opened at the Sydney Opera House last week.

Police discovered his body at the apartment complex in the inner-city suburb of Pyrmont early on Saturday.

Officers say the hypnotist, who was staying with his fellow performers, had fallen to his death from a balcony on the 11th floor.

A police spokeswoman said officers have ruled out any suspicious circumstances, but said they had yet to determine whether the death was a result of "misadventure or self-harm".

Tim Lawson, a co-producer of The Illusionists 2.0 show, said future performances will continue despite Dr Lewis' death.

"The company is deeply saddened by the sudden loss of Dr Lewis," Mr Lawson said in a statement.

"The entire company has decided to continue the show in his honour, and send our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends."

The Sydney Opera House said in a statement that Dr Lewis "was a wonderful performer and he will be greatly missed".

Dr Lewis's website said he had the distinction of having "the longest-running family-friendly comedy hypnosis show in Las Vegas history".

He had performed at the city's Riviera Hotel for nine years.

Wonder if it was suicide.
