I’m often asked what kind of magic I perform. It’s a good question: if you’ve not seen a close-up magician before, it’s hard to know.
I perform sleight of hand close-up magic using cards, coins, envelopes, rope, watches and a whole host of props that I find around the situation I’m performing in. I’ll give you a few examples:
• I perform a card trick where the deck turns to a block of glass … in someone’s hand!
• I make normal pieces of rope (which have previously been checked by audience members) transform to three times their size, even though everyone is watching incredibly closely.
• I have every single person on the table (normally about twelve people) select a card and then find every single card.
• I give someone a locked box and make a signed playing card appear inside.
Those are just a few examples. I improvise the magic I perform to make it a personal, memorable experience for everyone watching. This makes every single performance different and entertaining.
