playing cards and sawing people in half

IMGP1117 (2)I love performing magic tricks. I have no special powers, I am not in league with the Devil, I never went to Hogwarts… all of my performances owe everything to skill, practice, sleight of hand and sleight of mouth.

I enjoy all sorts of magic from close up magic with playing cards, coins and the like to stage illusions like sawing someone in half with a power saw. Generally I tend to be more of a comedy magician than a solemn, serious prestidigitator (more of a half-baked-‘tator) but that does not mean that it’s all silliness and jokes – sawing someone in half is no joke, especially if you can’t put them back together again (Your Honour).

I can point to many magic awards and achievements. None of them are mine, I am just good at pointing!

I am a member of the Mid Essex Magical Society and you can book us to come and do a charity fundraising show which will be a great evening out. I am also available for private bookings. If you would like to explore this, do send me a message through this site and I will get back to you.

If you want to see me in action, click here to see a clip from the show I performed with my friend Richard Jones at South Woodham Ferrers. Visit my magical website for more:

Here are some things people have said about me and my magic:

“How did you do that?” (Almost everyone – the answer is usually “With humour” or “With panache!”)

“Why did you do that?” (My wife)

“We have had a great night, but this wasn’t it” (A local church for whom I did the magic part of a ‘Magic and Curry Night’ (better that I do the magic than the curry) – I may have added the second part for comedic effect)

“Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrggghhhh!” (Headmaster as I sawed him in half in front of the school to raise funds for Comic Relief)
