After dinner and close up magician
Alan Hudson is one of UK’s most original and amazing close up magicians and funniest stage magicians.
Highly regarded as one of the top professional magicians in the UK. Dropping tricks and laughs in London, Midlands, Home Counties as well as the rest of England (and the world). With over 20 years of professional magical experience, Hudson is one of the top conjurors in the UK who uses stunning sleight of hand to entertain. Cool corporate dinners and client parties and wonderful weddings. The perfect party performer for after dinner magic at award ceremonies, at the tables for balls and dinners and at the wake for a funeral (he hasn’t done one yet – it’s on the Bucket List). He’ll charm and wow your guests, making your event magical and absolutely unforgettable.
“Hilarious. Brilliant!” Stephen Mulhern
Stand Up Magician
Hudson performs his very funny stand up magic, comedy, mind reading show. He’s performed at Leicester Square Theatre, London and Edinburgh Festival. Not to mention appearances on several primetime TV shows and for thousands of corporate events. He’s one of the UK’s most entertaining and original comedy magicians.
Your guests become the stars of the show. Although Hudson does most of the heavy lifting, it’s the guest’s reactions that make the show. He can read their minds by telling them which word they are merely thinking of or what their actual Credit/Debit Card PIN is! Also some really great funny, visual set pieces of magic to music.
He can put your guests in funny (never embarrassing) situations and provide a real talking point. Ideal for when you want to create a shared experience and need everyone entertaining at the same time. The stand up/after dinner act is the perfect solution. Excellent for corporate events, dinners, balls and awards ceremonies.
“We loved your act!” Penn & Teller
“Oh my god! How did you do that? I just don’t understand. You are a bit too good!” Comedian and Actress – Catherine Tate
“Your magic wowed the whole delegation and even impressed the most ardent cynics” Infosys Technology, London
Table Magician London, Midlands and Home Counties
Visual close up magic that is interactive and stunning. Magical effects with guest’s personal possessions: money will appear from thin air. Jewellery vanishes and re-appears in impossible locations. Signed cards are magically transported to a mobile phone or a sealed wallet. Borrowed wine bottles are pushed right through your dinner table! Imagine full decks of cards melting away whilst held in someone’s hands. Incredible mind reading to really mess with their brains.
And now some thoughts from the man himself…
“Hello. Me here. Hudson. I wrote most of the site too, but here I get to pretend I didn’t and speak in first person for a bit. Often people ask me how long they should hire a close up magician for. Trust me…. less is definitely more. Having some magic at your event is a bit like having really nice chocolate. It’s really lovely for a while, but if you have too much, it gets worse (and can even start to make you feel ill). It’s the law of diminishing returns. Usually 60 minutes is enough for less than 50 guests. 90/120 minutes is enough for up to about 120 guests. If you’re having dinner and having more than 120 guests, you should also hire another table magician. I only book first class Magic Circle magicians who I know personally, so I can 100% guarantee their excellence” Alan Hudson – One of UK’s favourite funny trickstersFor a table magician/close up magician you could also try Magician Bristol or here if you are looking for a Female Close Up Magician
