"Andrew has been at some of our biggest, recent events and we couldn’t have been happier with his performance. A fantastic display, great repartee and interaction with customers and an all-round excellent performer. So good, we almost don’t want to share him!"

Close-Up Magic

Close Up Magic is one of the most powerful and unforgettable experiences you can have and can create memories that will last for the rest of your life. It is performed inches from the audiences face, in their hands, often with their own possessions.


Imagine your guests taking part in the following scenarios at your next party or event…


  • Andrew borrows an engagement ring which then vanishes in flames and appears inside a padlocked box that has been in the audiences hands the entire time.
  • Andrew and the audience hold metal objects at their fingertips and cause them to bend in front of their very eyes with just the power of the mind. 
  • An audience member draws a picture of a place that means something to them and places it onto a sealed envelope. Using psychic trickery Andrew will climb inside their mind and draw exatly the image they are thinking of. 

Close-Up Magic is perfect for parties, events, Christmas parties, family celebrations and Weddings. It can be slotted seamlessly into any event and Andrew can "mix and mingle" amongst your guests and entertain them in small groups. 




"Andrew worked hard at my 50th birthday party of approximately 100 people, intriguing guests of all ages with his close magic.  The fork bending trick was especially popular but the variety of card tricks were equally impressive. He also took time at the end of his 'rounds' to perform some magic just for me."

Stand-Up magic is performed to larger audiences, usually on stage and involves larger props and effects. 


Andrew blends comedy, mind reading, escapology, world record attempts and magic to creata crowd-pleasing cabaret style show with plenty of audience participation.
