Close Up Magician
What is Close Up
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
Mix and Mingle Magician - Strolling 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
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!).

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