it comes to your function, I'll mix and mingle effortlessly with your
guests, using my unique style of magic to astound, amuse and bewilder.
I don't use special magic props in my act, I specialise in using
everyday objects such as banknotes, wedding rings, sugar
and playing cards to create seemingly impossible feats of body and mind?
This all happens within inches of
the audience's eyes,
leaving them totally baffled, truly entertained and talking about your
function for months to come!
Here are just a
few of my favourite effects, which you'll see if you ask me to perform
close up sleight of hand magic at your event:
The Ring Trick -
This is my signature effect.
I borrow up to four rings from my audience and with a wave of my hand,
they all vanish, right in front of your guests' eyes.
My hands stay within view the whole time, yet all the rings miraculously
appear secured tightly to a clip on my car keys, in my back
Then, watch again as they disappear once more, but this time, for the
grand finale the rings re-appear inside a SEALED envelope, inside a
zipped pocket, in my wallet, in my inner jacket pocket! You can
examine the envelope.
The Money Thing
I can do some truly amazing things with bank
notes ...YOUR bank notes, ...no magic shop props here!! Right in front
of your eyes, you will witness the impossible! I will visibly transform
your bank note to one of a different value, or into one of a different
currency or even split a £10 note into 2 £5 notes or a £20 to
I can even tear one
up have you examine it and then restore it. All this, right in front of your eyes!
"David is totally awesome! Such a talented
and clever man, he entertained the guests at my 50th birthday party to
the extent where all anybody could talk about afterwards was him!! 'How
did he do that?...' seemed to be the question everyone was asking. We
were utterly amazed at what he did. If you never book anyone else in
your life, book this man for your special occasion and you will remember
it forever. I can't thank him enough for making my birthday extra
- I'm not just a master sleight of hand magician, but also a master
'sleight of mind' magician.
If you've seen Derren Brown on TV, you'll
have an idea of what I this is, I have a whole repertoire
of similar mind reading and thought control effects. The difference
is; everything happens in front of your eyes – and not a camera in
Incredible effects, such as:
• predicting the order of a pack of playing cards that you have just
• successfully thinking of the same word, colour or object that
someone is thinking of;
• naming a playing card that has simply been looked at whilst I'm
looking the other way;
• drawing the same picture that someone has just drawn, even though I
can't possibly have seen it;
• plus many, many other truly mind boggling feats of the mind!
"We were looking for a
magician to entertain us and our guests at our wedding. David kindly came
to our home to give us a demonstration of the kind of magic he would
This was fantastic and we knew straight away we had to book
On the day he was on time, well presented, always smiling, and very
polite and courteous to all. So many guests have commented to us how much they enjoyed the magic and
how good David is!
There were gasps of disbelief, astounded guests so
impressed by the amazing effects, including myself and my husband! David
was a real talking point for the day and everyone was impressed. David is
an excellent magician, a great entertainer and a nice guy. There was a
very loud cheer as he waved goodbye to the room, and that said it all! I
would recommend him to anyone for their wedding or event. Thanks David."
Keep an eye on your watch, your wallet and even your tie when I'm
around – one of them might just disappear!

The Sugar Trick
- This is an effect that to my knowledge, no other magician performs.
With this effect, I
borrow a spectator's banknote, roll it into a cone shape and fold the
end over. I then pour the entire contents of a sachet of sugar into
it, but when the banknote is unravelled, the sugar has vanished!
The spectator then examines the banknote which I then roll up again
and, miraculously, the sugar pours out.
I then pour the sugar back into the spectator's hand, and they then
squeeze their hand and the sugar transforms into a sugar cube.
The spectator is asked to examine the sugar cube, which then
miraculously transforms back into sugar granules within inches of your
Then, the spectator tears up the sugar sachet. I take the sugar and
the sachet pieces and with a swift wave of the hand, restore the sugar
back to it's previous form in the restored packet – apart from the
matching corner of the packet, which will have been in the spectator's
hand the entire time!
Fancy a Tipple?
With this effect, I
conjure a bottle from thin air and then proceed to visibly 'melt' it
through the table!!
Then for the finale, I'll make one of your coins visibly penetrate
through the bottom of the bottle. You'll see the coin inside, and
it's even too big to fit through the opening at the top.
"We asked David to perform at our staff
Christmas drinks party and were truly astounded by his amazing effects.
He is a terrific magician and everyone enjoyed the evening - it
definitely was the talking point the following day! David was very
smartly dressed for the occasion and came over as a true professional.
We most definitely would recommend him to all."
The World Famous Linking Rings
remember seeing both David Nixon and Paul Daniels doing this effect when
I was very young.
They used to take these
large silver rings and with a swift magical move, impossibly link them
together and then unlink them. I was hypnotised and enthralled and
it was a childhood dream to learn this traditional effect.
But this is a stage
with very large rings. So I have adapted the effect to the close up
magic environment that I work in, not with big silver rings, but small 6
inch brass ones. This is one not to be missed!

"Thank you so much for the
brilliant entertainment David - every single thank you letter we have had
has commented on how amazing you were and how much people enjoyed your
special brand of magic. You made it a very memorable 21st party for Alex
and we are really grateful for your skill and professionalism. We found
you through a recommendation and many of our guests have asked for your
contact details. We are sure you will continue to intrigue and delight
people wherever you appear!"
Spoon and Fork Bending
Uri Gellar? ...I go one step
further and have spectators actually bend and twist the forks and spoons
themselves. They've absolutely no idea how, but they are, with
their own hands!
The spectator becomes the Magician – but please don't ask for the 'sick'
ending unless you have a very strong stomach!...Click

- I'm a master Card Shark!
Signed cards, shuffled into the pack, will
appear in all sorts of mind-boggling places - in a wallet that you were
holding, in my mouth,
under YOUR watch, on the ceiling, the other side of a glass window, and even
folded up neatly in my shoe!
play on the image to the right.
In other effects, cards visually
transform to other cards, poker and cheating demonstrations, mind
reading with cards, you name it, I can do it with a pack of cards.
One of my personal favourites is where, as a hole punched into your signed card moves around the card
and then jumps to another card ...yes a hole!!
Weird, Gory and Strange Magic
Whether it's making you
believe that I've cut your
finger right through to the bone with a Stanley knife and then somehow
healed you or hammering a
teaspoon into my head, I've got a scarily large repertoire of this kind
For some strange reason
it seems to go down uncannily well!!
"David's magic really made
our wedding reception special and so different from others we have been
to. The smiles and laughter on our guests faces made us so happy that we
asked him to perform from us. He impressed our guests so much that many
of them were asking for his number.
Thank you so much David, you made our day"
"Just wanted to say a HUGE
thank you for the magic at our wedding. You were so BRILLIANT!! So many
people have commented on how impressed they were and what a great idea
it was. My little cousin who is 9 was so impressed that he is now
constantly pestering his Mum to book you for his Birthday party "
If you think the levitation of inanimate objects is impossible, think
And then ask me to come and perform.
This is not the typical David Blaine camera
trick style effect. I will borrow something of yours and actually
make it float within inches of your eyes!
The above tricks and effects are just a
small selection of my favourite magic effects, but there are many, many more.
I've never actually counted how many I know, perhaps hundreds! perhaps
more, each totally mind boggling and totally inexplicable.
After well over 25 years of practicing and playing with magical and
psychological ideas and concepts, my
knowledge has become so expansive that if you would like me to tailor my act
to suit your requirements, just let me know
