Professional London table magician Alan Hudson (seen on ITV's primetime hit Penn and Teller: Fool Us), is a man who has stunning sleight of hand trickery and also has the funnies to go with them. Cool and awesome illusions for wonderful weddings, posh private parties, cool corporate client events and probably some other places too. There are other sleight of hand close up magicians for hire in the UK but before you book anyone, view their promo video first. Watch this video to see why Alan is one of the busiest and most requested magicians in the UK.
"Hudson is an astounding magician, comic and mind reader" Three Weeks ****
"We loved your act!" Penn & Teller, possibly the best magicians on Earth
"Oh my god! How did you do that? I just don't understand!.... You are a bit too good" Comedienne and Actress - Catherine Tate
Not only is Hudson one of the UK's most incredibly entertaining up close magicians, he also performs his very funny stand up comedy cabaret show with mind reading, magic and stand up comedy. Performed in Edinburgh to many 4 star reviews - it's now available to book now for your guests.
A funny after dinner show can really make a huge impact. When coffee has been served, Alan performs his stand up comedy, magic and mind reading whilst making your guests the stars of the show. He'll tell them which word they are thinking of, what their PIN number is and perform funny set pieces of magic to music. He can put your guests in funny situations and provide a real talking point. A mix and mingle magician is excellent for small groups, but when you want everyone entertaining at the same time, the cabaret act is the perfect solution.
And now a thoughts from the man himself....
"Hello. Me here. Hudson. I wrote the rest of the site too but here I get to speak in first person for a bit. Often people ask me how long to
hire a close up magician for. Trust me when I say less is definitely more. Having magic at your party or wedding is a
bit like having a really nice Turkish Delight - fantastic for a while but
if you have too much it gets a bit sickly.
Usually 2 hours is enough for up to about 120 guests. If you're having a dinner and are having more than 120 guests, you should think about hiring another magician as well to make sure no table feels like they are unloved and ignored. Ask me to recommend or even book them in on your behalf - I know some really brilliant ones - I only book tip top tabletop magicians who I know will do a fantastic job and have worked with them in the past so I can 100% guarantee their excellence" Alan Hudson - Magician in London
How Much are Magicians and other questions?
If you have any questions like "When is the best time to have magic at our wedding?" or "I'm not sure on prices. How much do magicians cost to hire for an adult audience?" etc they are probably answered in the FAQ page - unless the question is "do you do card tricks?" then it's not (but the answer is yes).
Many people ask if Alan will work on weekends - the answer is of course yes (we get lots of stupid questions). He mainly performs in London, Greater London, Surrey, Hertfordshire, Kent, Essex and generally the South of England. However, he also goes to Birmingham, Oxford, Bristol, Bath, Swindon, and other places further in the North - such as Hull (birthplace)
Alan Hudson is one of the UK's leading Street Magicians for hire (also known as a close up magician/table magician, but they are all the same thing really). Currently living in London but continues to perform all over the UK and abroad. Areas covered include Surrey, Kent, Central London, Mayfair, Kensington, Hampstead, Primrose Hill, Chiswick and other areas that aren't quite so posh.
Unlike many people that advertise that they are a 'London Magician' or similar, Alan actually lives in London! Clapham to be precise. If you have any doubts after looking at this website and would like to meet up in central London - drop us an email on the Contact page
