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! Incredible mind reading to really mess with their brains. All presented in Alan’s humorous style to ensure everyone enjoys the experience.
Stand Up Magician
Hudson performs his very funny stand up magic, comedy, mind reading show. He’s performed at Leicester Square Theatre in London, The Magic Castle in Los Angeles, Monday Night Magic in New York and Edinburgh Festival. Not to mention appearances on several major 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 really make the show. Each show is completely unique.
He can put your guests in funny (never embarrassing) situations and provide a real talking point for weeks and months to come. 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.
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 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 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
