Review of Scoop Magic by Jennifer Stephenson

From the very first contact Scoop aka Paul Dawson was brilliant. He met our expectations and entertained all out guests. He provided an hour long children's entertainment session while we had our legal wedding ceremony which me Any all the kids had fun and the ceremony wasn't interrupted. The up close magic for our guests was fun, perplexing, amazing and captivating. He has a great down to earth approach and really kept us all amused. Highly recommended.

Turned up on time, worked the room for a corporate thank you event as discussed, everyone seemed to enjoy! Could have perhaps done more to weave the thank you into the magic but very last minute booking we didn't discuss this bit enough perhaps?

Scoop Magic replied:
Hi Emma, thanks for your review. The thank you element wasn't discussed with me at all I'm afraid otherwise I would have been happy to work that into my performance.. I'm glad everyone enjoyed themselves though and I'll hope to see you again.

Kind regards
Paul

Scoop Magic was an excellent choice for our hospital celebration. He interacted so well with our patients, they are still talking about it a week later. We'd like to thank him for being professional and bringing lots of laughter to our day.

Our Rotary Club had Scoop to entertain the guests at a Moulin Rouge Evening.
He was very, very good and enjoyed by everyone. His hand sleight was unbelievable.

Scoop Magic Q&A

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.
