Magic Up CloseCertificate of Excellence 2019
Bristol, Bristol(53 Reviews)
Startling magic for your party from one of the most experienced magicians in the West Country. Over 85 bookings through Bark.com and over 50 5-star customer reviews in the last 12 months and growing fast! 22 years' experience and a natural ability to entertain and amaze helping to make your event or party a great success. Please don't expect bargain basement prices from an experienced professional but Paul offers good value at a realistic price for both sides.
Paul's amazing 'walk around' style of magic is great for weddings, parties to special events of all kinds. It's a unique form of entertainment that is fascinating to watch and fun to enjoy. Have a look at all the reviews to see how well it works at other clients parties.
Performing at dinner tables or mix and mingle style events provides that special extra to make your event memorable and entertaining for your guests, friends or colleagues. Your guests will have a great time and you get the credit!
Paul also offers a larger scale of magic for cabaret, stage or family gatherings which includes some classic stage illusions including the levitation of someone from the audience or sawing a person in half (and restoring them!) featuring members of the audience with an act combining comedy and amazing magic. This makes a great option for after dinner entertainment for Rotary clubs of which he's done many and similar organisations.

Magic Up Close Q&A
How long have you been interested in magic?
Since the age of 10 with a magic set which set me on the road to learning all the skills a magician needs from sleight of hand to making magic interesting and entertaining. Since then the art of illusion has been a lifelong fascination for me.
Take us through your show – what can we expect?
The close-up magic is varied performed with cards, coins, borrowed rings, borrowed money and notes in fact most normal things without any strange looking magicians props! Certainly no doves or rabbits! It's difficult to go in to the detail of all the tricks and would spoil the surprise, except to say that, in the words of the old song the audience are always bewitched, baffled and bewildered. No boring card tricks!!
My cabaret show is quite a funny act often using people from then audience without embarrassing anyone and ending with the levitation of someone from the audience often a lady or sawing someone in half with an electric jig saw (and restoring them!) as a finale.
What do you love most about your job?
Watching people experience a sense of amazement and enjoying the magic. Leaving people feeling they have had a great time with smiles on their faces.
