Cabaret Magician

For something very special I also perform a comedy style ‘stand-up’ magic act. It’s great entertainment for an audience of 20 to 100 or more people. It’s especially suitable for family get-togethers, after dinner entertainment, fund raising events, banquet events and small scale theatre venues.

As well as several tricks including members of the audience is the dramatic levitation of a volunteer and the classic sawing a person in half. Running from 20 up to 50 minutes it can be tailored to suit your event and provide some fantastic entertainment for all ages to enjoy from teens upwards.
