John has been immersed in magic for almost 2 decades. At just 13 years old, his father showed him the classic “cut and restored rope” trick and the rest shall we say, is history!
At 17 years of age, John landed his first paying gig at his local Italian restaurant where he was asked to perform close up magic to their dine-in customers.
Over the last 18 years and after 1000’s of performances, John has fine-tuned his sleight-of-hand skills which are sure to impress all your guests at your next important event!
Close Up Magic
John is renowned for his Close Up, also known as Roving Magic. It’s a perfect addition to any corporate or private function such as a cocktail party, Christmas party, product launch, wedding or birthday party.
John will mingle amongst the guests showcasing his latest effects with cards, fire, mind reading and finger rings! You may even experience coins vanishing in front of your eyes and reappearing in the most impossible places! John’s many years of experience will ensure your important event is a success! Parlour Magic
The Parlour or “Stand Up” option is generally an add-on to John’s close up show. It’s ideal for smaller groups, usually less than 30 guests. This incorporates all the magical elements of John’s close up magic, including vanishes, mind reading and fire, but is fine-tuned for a slightly larger audience. Highly entertaining and highly interactive!
