Close Up Magician


What is Close Up Magic?

The term 'close up magician' describes just that, a magician who performs magic at really close quarters, often within inches of the audience's eyes, as apposed to the David Copperfield or Siegfried and Roy style of 'stage' magic where the audience is a long way away, and the magic is performed behind dazzling stage lighting.

Close up magic is very intimate and is an interactive experience between the magician and his audience.

Because it is so close, the apparent 'miracles' performed by a close up magician leave the audience gasping in amazement. It is a performance that really does have to be seen to be believed!

I've spent over 25 years practising, honing and perfecting my skills as a close up magician and I take great pleasure in the looks of wonder and bewilderment on people's faces.

"Dear David, CONGRATULATIONS!! You have taken my family and friends by storm! Saturday 18th was an absolute triumph and about 70 people were in love with you! I cannot express adequately how wonderful your act is, and how impressed I, and my guests, were with your entire presentation. I cannot visualise there is anyone who could better provide a higher quality entertainment for any important occasion. Well done David.  Are you charging enough?  Best wishes and thanks again


Mix and Mingle Magician - Strolling Magician - Wandering Magician

As a 'mix and mingle' magician, (also referred to as a 'strolling magician' or 'wandering magician'), I can delight each group of guests with their own private magic performance, giving each an 'intimate miracles' demonstration using a wide range of magical and psychological techniques.

This type of magic is absolutely ideal for a champagne reception, a stand up party, a corporate open day or any other function where the guests are standing up.
The length of each performance depends entirely on the number of guests and the time available, but can be anything from a 'one-off' trick taking 30 seconds to 10 minutes of entertainment, or even longer if required.

Some of my favourite magic for these occasions involves working with objects from pockets, using a combination of sleight of hand, physiological deception and pick-pocketing (all items returned to the owner after the show!).

Please see The Magic for more information on this.



Table Magician

Table Magician

A table magician (also sometimes referred to as 'table hopping') is best suited to a banquet style environment.

Whether your event includes one table, several tables or many more, I work my way round all the tables, providing each with a eye-opening performance of magic, comedy and visual illusion either between the courses of your meal, as an after dinner experience or both.

This approach works equally well for birthday treats or private parties with family and friends at home.

Please see Corporate Magician for more information.

"Well David, what can I say!!!  You are amazing, some people even said you were spooky as they could not believe their eyes!!  You are the best Magician we have seen and everyone who was at the party can't stop talking about you, you were unbelievable.   You have been highly recommended to everyone and hopefully we will see you again soon. 
Thanks so much for helping the evening go with such a BANG"
