The Close-up Magician specialises in making you look good by turning your event into something unforgettable and amazing with
1. Contemporary close-up magic with borrowed objects
2. Dramatic psychological mind reading
3. Audience involvement
4. Award-winning sleight of hand

This is not magic for children. This is sophisticated conjuring for sceptical audiences. His unique presentation, wit, and ability is guaranteed to impress and astound even the toughest crowds.

The Close-up Magician, can perform over 500 different effects and tailors each set to fit the mood and character of a particular audience. Below are some of the various categories that these effects fall into. 

Psychological Illusion:
Psychological illusion is a rare and exciting form of trickery which began in the 70s with Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Using this form of psychology/hypnosis, it is possible to create some very spooky and magical effects that look just like real mind reading.

Sleight of Hand and Misdirection:
During this section of the performance, he will show you why you should never play cards for money. Practicing for over 6 hours per day has given him the ability to safely replicate the skill and dexterity with a pack of cards usually only accomplished by professional card cheats. You will see a variety of feats that will fool the eyes of the most observant participant - all for entertainment purposes only!

Mind-blowing Magic:
This is classic magic with a modern twist. Incredible effects that present that same feeling of wonder and excitement as we felt when we were children. Here, he will do effects with cards, currency, rings, rubber bands and other various every-day objects. This form of entertainment is presented slowly and can be truly scrutinised as there is genuinely nothing to hide. An example of this type of effect is where a signed, borrowed note vanishes and appears inside a real, examined Kiwi fruit that was in full view the entire time.
