THE MAN WHO FOOLED PENN & TELLER! (ITV1, August 2011)
Initially becoming interested in magic at the age of 8, Lee has been invited to perform at some of the most exclusive functions and events around the world - and never fails to make an impact!
He is a member of Equity, an Inner Magic Circle associate (only 300 worldwide) and is one of the few magicians chosen to perform at the Royal Variety VIP after-party for the last 5 years running.
His fast paced and dynamic persona captures people from the word go..... combined with some of the most amazing magic you'll ever witness...whether it's stealing somebody's watch, making your money float or appear inside fruit, pushing a bottle through a table or giving you back your wallet(!) your guests are guaranteed to be left laughing and gasping in awe.
Lee has performed at thousands of corporate and private events across the globe and has made numerous television appearances. He has also lectured and performed at the world-famous Magic Circle on several occasions. His most recent television appearance was on ITV's "Fool Us" where he successfully hoodwinked 2 of the most successful magicians of all time, Penn and Teller and went on to appear in their Las Vegas show.

Lee Hathaway Magic Q&A
How long have you been interested in magic?
Oh, for about 3 weeks now :-)) .......(plus 20 years!)
Take us through your show – what can we expect?
Witnessing magic right there, directly in front of your very eyes, in your hands – with your objects. Rings fly to keychains, watches disappear from guest’s wrists, objects float in mid-air and borrowed banknotes materialise inside pieces of fruit.
From entertaining members of the Royal family, Presidents and Prime Ministers, Sheiks and Princes in the Middle East and countless A-list celebrities - my close-up magic is the perfect way to make an impact on your guest and leave them with something they'll talk about for years to come!
What do you love most about your job?
Getting paid :-)
Aaah, apparently that's not enough, I have to enter at least 50 characters in this box. Well, sorry you've had to read this but I think that should do it.
What inspired you to start your own business?
Well, nobody will give me a job doing anything else! It's just as well I love it.
Why should our clients choose you?
Well, there is only ONE of me! But, seriously though I'm not the cheapest - but I am one of the best at this kind of entertainment....and I'll happily speak to anyone or meet up with them to discuss beforehand and prove it! Just hold on to your wallets and watches. For legal reasons I'm no longer taking requests for spouse disappearances!

Close-up Magic / Private Events
Witnessing magic right there, directly in front of your very eyes, in your hands – with your objects. Rings fly to keychains, watches disappear from guest’s wrists, objects float in mid-air and borrowed banknotes materialise inside pieces of fruit. From entertaining members of the Royal family, Presidents and Prime Ministers, Sheiks and Princes in the Middle East and countless A-list celebrities - Lee's close-up magic is the perfect way to make an impact on your guest and leave them with something they'll talk about for years to come. His brand of close-up magic is fresh and innovative and is a sure-fire way to enhance your guest’s experience. Combining his outgoing personality with award winning sleight of hand - it's easy to see why clients come back time and time again.
A regular on the cabaret scene for many years, Lee's comedy magic act is in demand across the UK and can be booked for your event to get people laughing and leave them awe-struck. The act can last from 15 to 40 minutes and includes such feats as discovering a previously burnt borrowed banknote inside a walnut.... which was inside an egg.... which was inside a lemon!!! For belly laughs, you can't beat Lee's "hands" routine, where his hands become those of the volunteer and for a few moments the special guest (or MD, or arch enemy!) becomes the magician. Truly hilarious, it has to be seen to be believed! Jackets get destroyed, watches go missing, razor blades are eaten and somehow Lee manages to work it all out in the most impossible way - with plenty of comedy and laughs to keep people entertained throughout. Lee's act can be performed in most venues and sound equipment can be provided.
We all know that your wedding day is supposed to be the most important and enjoyable day of your life...but it can also be one of the most stressful. Worrying that guests are happy and kept entertained is often one of the major concerns. Well, worry not...having Lee at your event will not only provide exceptional entertainment, magic also acts as a perfect ice breaker and bond-maker to guests from all walks of life who may not be so familiar with one another. Lee also has a few things up his sleeves for your younger guests (a few seasons on luxury resorts abroad gave him ample experience here!). Mixing and mingling during a reception or performing at tables during a meal, Lee's close-up magic is the perfect way to get people talking and ensure that people are kept smiling and enjoying themselves throughout the proceedings. Undoubtedly his favourite type of event to be at, Lee has a wealth of experiencing performing at weddings. He particularly enjoys being part of something so special and making it a truly magical experience. As such, special rates are available for this type of event...so please call to ensure your day really is as wonderful as it's meant to be!
Lee’s extensive list of clients speaks for itself – it’s almost easier to list who he’s not performed for! Whether it’s an intimate networking drinks event for 15 people, a party to celebrate a company achievement or a large scale event for hundreds of attendees – Lee’s brand of magic and engaging personality is a sure fire way to ensure your event is remembered long after it has taken place. Working with one of the top agencies in the country for this form of entertainment, Lee is among an elite group of performers who are well established as the foremost suppliers of magic entertainment for business and corporate events.
