FAQs About Magic & Hiring Me

WHAT IS CLOSE UP MAGIC?

 

Close-up magic or table magic is magic performed in an intimate setting usually no more than a ten-foot distance from one’s audience and is usually performed while sitting at a table. Use is made of everyday items as props, such as cards and coins.

 

If you’re still unsure of what this wizardry entails then I’d be more than happy to show you a few tricks over coffee – I can be found in Costa most days.

 

WHAT WILL IT BRING TO MY EVENT?

 

Like a shark attack in your local swimming baths – your guests won’t know what hit them! Close up magic transforms boring events into a thing of the past. The era of sequin waistcoats and stuffy rope tricks is well and truly over and the magic I perform is so cosmopolitan you could sip it out of a cocktail glass! Cards, coins, rings and some really rather random items pop up in my performances -and not only that – I’ll give you all one hell of a good giggle too!

 

WHY BOOK ME?

 

Not only am I the world’s tallest magician (unconfirmed but probably true) – I’m also completely kick ass! I’ve been doing magic a long time so I know what works! Aside from my technical brilliance and outrageous good looks… I’ll personally ensure that your event starts with a bang and ends with an even bigger one! In short, I love entertaining people!

 

HOW LONG SHOULD I BOOK YOU FOR?

  • My sessions are usually based on two hours. I try to adhere to the old adage; Keep them wanting more!  For intimate parties of 10-20; an hour will probably be enough. Please note, for numbers over 100, you’ll probably need two or more magicians. I have a fine selection of other professional magicians who I can ask on your behalf and are ever so slightly not as good as me but will still do a fantastic job! See my Team of Magicians page
  • What else do you have planned for your event? If you have live music or a DJ planned, it’s best I don’t work at the same time. Drop me an email and I can go through some options with you to get the best out of my services.

 

CAN I GET CHEAPER MAGICIANS THAN YOU?

 

Of course you can. Should you? Probably not! If you’re shopping for the cheapest magician then I’m not your man. If however you’re after a fantastic close up magician then we should talk. NOW! Here’s a useful blog piece about how much you should pay for your magician…

 

DO YOU HAVE ANY REVIEWS?

 

Sure, right HERE.

 

HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?

 

I have an online booking contract which I will get you to complete and pay a small deposit (via PayPal or bank transfer). Once I receive both then I’m yours. For a bit. The remainder to be paid a week before the event via bank transfer or my secure online card payment service.
