Close up magic that is visual, interactive and stunning. Magical miracles with your guest’s personal objects: money will appear from thin air.

Stand Up Magician
Hudson performs his very funny stand up magic, comedy, mind reading show.

Not to mention appearances on several major primetime TV shows and for thousands of corporate events. One of the UK’s most entertaining and original comedy magicians.
Your guests become the real stars of the show. Although Hudson does most of the heavy lifting, it’s the guest’s reactions to the magic and comedy that really make the show completely unique. 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, winter balls and awards ceremonies.
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, rich 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 a bit sick). It’s the law of diminishing returns. Usually 60 minutes is plenty of time 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, ask me to organise a team of magicians for you. I only book first class magicians from The Magic Circle who I know personally and have seen work, so I can 100% guarantee their professionalism and excellence” Alan HudsonFor a table magician/close up magician you could also try Magician Bristol or here if you are looking for a Female Close Up Magician
