Getting ready fro the new show "Choices"
The term close-up magic means what it say's "close up" as against the larger illusions you would witness at a theatre or on T.V. The style I've adopted is focused entirely at entertaining people at close quarters which involves more skill &, from feed back from past clients, is much more entertaining as the people who are witnessing the magic feel more involved.
Experienced in close up for over 24 years I have performed for many companies & in many countries performing his style of magic. My props are simple... a pack of cards or some coins or even objects from my audience, an audience who wants to witness some real magic & want to be amazed in an intimate setting.
In my vast experience of performing Close-up magic at event's the results have always been the same,amazement & entertainment at it's purest form.Forget the TV magic you see that can involve "STOOGES" and actors this is genuine with great reactions.
Wedding's in particular benefit from entertainment during the day as more often than not the day is taken up by official duties like the photos.A close up performer can fill the dead time between the drinks reception & during the meal entertaining the tables as one & help to give the day a bit more variety and banter between people.
Below shows just some of the companies I have worked for in my experience as a close-up magician.
As we all know all Entertainment goes through fads & with the light of new magic TV shows, the world of magic is changing. Due to popular demand the Mind Magic is taking over & dominating the world of Illusion & Entertainment. And so for the last 2 years I have been working on a new Cabaret style show that combines many different styles of Psychology to obtain amazing and very entertaining results.
In 2003 I qualified as an NLP Practitioner & I use this new skill to full extent within the show. The other skills I use are Cold Reading, Showmanship & of course the broad theme of Magic. Imagine being asked to draw a picture or think of a word or even the name of someone only you would know? And imagine your surprise when I can write down that word or even draw the same picture that you drew? Well that's what I do within the show & I have to say the audiences love it.
The second half of the show I dedicate to another fascinating area of Hypnosis. I will take a selected amount of people through the induction & then through tests to prove that under a controlled environment people can be influenced through suggestion. The show is devised in such away to educate & entertain without making the subjects perform demoralizing acts.
I have seen so many of these so called acts that make people do Sexual acts & make idiots of people and I think it gives Hypnosis a bad name.
The show has been developed to be flexible to suit any size of venue and any amount of audience.
Questions I get asked.
