Scoop Magic Q&A
How long have you been interested in magic?
I took up magic as a kid in 1987 and have been doing it as a full time professional since 2002.
Take us through your show – what can we expect?
My close up performances involve amazing stunts with cards, money, lottery tickets, ropes and objects borrowed from the audience.
in my cabaret show I open by turning a lit candle into a white silk right before their eyes, another candle turns into a real dove which then disappears and reappears in a spectator's hands.
I then warm up, literally, with comedy fire juggling, followed by body burns and fire eating. If fire is not allowed at the venue I juggle machetes over an audience member instead.
For my next trick I lose someone's jewellery and it turns up in a very surprising place. Then with the help of a little 'suggestion' my volunteers start literally jumping out of their seats.
Next I teach one of the children an important life lesson about fun while performing the impossible with a balloon before performing a knife throwing card trick with a beautiful lady from the audience.
Finally I open an envelope that has been on view the entire show to reveal my impossible foreknowledge. Is it psychic power? Psychological control? Or is everything we do already written in the stars?
What do you love most about your job?
Meeting new people and putting that look of wonder in their eyes and a smile on their faces.
What inspired you to start your own business?
It's the only way to be a magician and that is what I wanted to do.
Why should our clients choose you?
Because I am reliable, professional, experienced and above all entertaining. Also, even though I'm not the cheapest magician out there, I believe I offer the best value for money.
From March 2002 to present.
