David was the Magician at our first ever charity event. He was absolutely amazing! He really wowed our guests with his close up magic. The best close up magic I have ever seen. Our guests havent stopped talking about how fantastic he was. He also helped the night run smoothly and he is such a nice guy. It was a pleasure to have him with us on a night that meant such a lot to us. We intend to make the charity evening an annual event and we would love him to be there with us again in 2020. Thank you so much. More...

David’s magic is highly engaging, original and amazing ! We had David at a family event 3 years ago and he was so good we booked him again for a family party last weekend. He is professional, really likeable and has a great style of delivering his magic. David spent time making sure every guest had the chance to experience his magic. We’d recommend David for anyone wanting close up magic entertainment as he’s fantastic ! More...

What an amazing performance. David wandered casually to every group of guests and simply stunned them! Some had seen a "Close up Magician" before, but none as slick and professional as this. People were still talking about his performance hours after he had left. Thanks for everything David.Highly recommended and we'll definitely use Magikman the next time we have a barbie! More...

David was so wonderful! He really amazed everyone at the Prom/Leavers Party - including the adults! He was great with everyone there, including our 11 year olds, who thought they were too cool and old for a magician. .. He easily managed to engage everyone! They were thrilled! (including me!) He was also very lovely and responded to communications quickly before the party, which is important when your organising!

I asked David to entertain my guests at my 40th birthday party. He replied to my emails very efficiently and before you could say "magic " he was booked. He arrived on time and impeccably dressed. I was already impressed .
Then he started wowing all the guests. He was unbelievable . The magic was original and seamless and he was a talking point for days.

Do not hesitate to book David. He will make your eventime literally magical !

We booked David to perform his magic at our wedding reception last week. David has demonstrated he is the ultimate professional from the first contact, with his prompt and polite responses. He is very well-presented with an unassuming persona. We initially invited him to our house for a demonstration before booking, and he totally wowed us right there in our living room! At the wedding we asked him to come as the evening guests were arriving, and the day time guests were still around too. He worked his way round everyone, amazing everyone with his card tricks, 'mind reading' acts and close up sleight of hand magic. Everyone we talked to thought he was brilliant and had no idea how he did what he did. I would highly recommend David to perform at any event and his costs are very reasonable. My only regret is that we were so busy trying to talk to all the guests that we only got to see one of his magic tricks ourselves!
Thanks David! From Paula and Craig.

Q&As

I became interested in magic from a very young age. I remember watching the Paul Daniel's magic show on Saturday nights and was hooked! I put on my first magic show for my family at the age of 6 much to their delight!

My magic is very similar to popular magicians such as Dynamo and David Blaine. I specialise in close-up impromptu style magic utilising anything from playing cards to jewellery (or money!).

I think creating the wow factor is really important for clients/guests so I focus on highly visual magic that always gets a great reaction. Often at big events and weddings people can be slightly distracted so I think it's important to start with a trick that gets a great reaction from the outset to engage the audience.

I also think there is an art to performing magic. A lot of performers focus on comedy too much and it can sometimes come across a bit forced. I really think I have the right balance whether I am performing at a corporate function or at a wedding - being able to tailor your performance is really important.

Performing magic is great because you get to meet lots of different people and visit some wonderful venues. I'm definitely a 'people person' so this is ideal for me. I also love designing new tricks and watching peoples reactions.

I have been performing magic for over 15 years now and my first professional booking was when I was 16. The real inspiration for me was watching David Blaine when he first appeared on TV performing his 'street magic' series. I thought it was incredible especially the reactions from everyone as he made the impossible, possible, and made it look so natural.

Over the past 15 years I have had the pleasure of performing for some really great companies and people. Throughout this time I have been able to really hone the magic I perform to suit a host of different scenarios from corporate events, weddings to birthday parties. Given my special focus on highly visual 'street style' magic I think what I offer works incredibly well. I hope I have the pleasure to perform for you!
