What is close-up magic?

Close-up magic is the kind of magic that is often performed by magicians at parties or other social gatherings. As the name suggests, it is performed at close range, usually within a few feet of the audience. This type of magic typically uses borrowed objects, such as coins or cards, and often relies on cunning dexterity to create the illusion of magic.


While close-up magic may not be as flashy as stage magic, it can be just as entertaining – and sometimes even more so. After all, there’s nothing quite like seeing a coin disappear right before your eyes.


Other terms used are: hand magic, mingle magic, magic and mind reading, sleight of hand magic, and cabaret magician. Whatever the term, it should be the same outcome from your close up magician: absolutely delighted party guests!
