Ah, the secret ingredient to Close-Up Chris’s magic – comedy! You see, Chris’s tricks aren’t just about wowing you with sleight of hand or making your jaw drop with an unexpected twist. No, they’re about making you laugh till your sides ache, turning a simple magic trick into an unforgettable experience.

Comedy is the backbone of Chris’s tricks, the secret sauce that makes them stand out from the crowd. It adds an extra layer of entertainment, transforming each performance into a rollercoaster ride of laughter and amazement. Whether he’s poking fun at himself, delivering a punchline with perfect timing, or using irony and wordplay to keep you on your toes, Chris’s comedic flair is always front and centre.

This blend of humour and magic is what sets Chris apart from other magicians. It’s not just about fooling you; it’s about taking you on a fun-filled journey where every trick is a surprise and every laugh is genuine. So, if you’re looking for a magician who can make you laugh as hard as he can make you gasp in wonder, then look no further. Close-Up Chris is the magician for you.


Ah, the age-old question: “Have you won any awards for your magic?” Well, dear reader, I hate to burst your bubble, but the answer is a resounding no. But before you gasp in shock, let me explain.

You see, at the end of the day, my guests don’t give two hoots about awards. Unlike other magicians, they’re not interested in shiny trophies or fancy certificates. What they care about is having a good time, being entertained, and experiencing something they’ve never seen before.

And that’s where I come in. My magic isn’t about impressing some stuffy panel of judges. It’s about making you laugh, making you gasp, and turning your event into an unforgettable experience. It’s about the smiles on your faces, the laughter in the room, and the memories we create together.

So, no, I haven’t won any awards. But if there was a trophy for putting smiles on faces and creating magical memories, I reckon I’d have a cabinet full of them!


Reviews? Oh, have I got reviews! I’ve got so many reviews, they would sink a ship if they were written on paper. But don’t take my word for it – take a gander at the floating tab on the right of the page. You’ll find boatloads of testimonials from satisfied customers who’ve had their minds blown by my unique blend of magic and comedy.

But wait, there’s more! I’m not just blowing smoke here. I’ve got the rankings to back it up. Currently, I’m sitting pretty at number 1 of all UK magicians on the independent review site, FreeIndex. That’s right, numero uno, top of the pops, king of the hill!

So, if you’re looking for a magician who comes highly recommended, you’ve come to the right place. But don’t just take my word for it – check out the reviews and see for yourself!
