After Dinner Showreel

This year I got someone to come and film one of my corporate after dinner shows and edit it together. Then, mixed it in with a few of the television appearances I’ve done. And voila – my 2019 Showreel. Showreels are tricky. As a performer you want to put more in. But I realise people […]

Blackpool Magicians Convention

My Smallest And Biggest Audience Ever

A few days ago someone asked me what the biggest audience was I’ve ever done magic for. Then, inevitably, someone asked “What’s the smallest?”. I thought I’d repeat the answer here… The biggest was very recently at the Blackpool Magician’s Convention. Ask any magician and he will certainly know of this convention – it’s the […]

The Magic Circle Cover Star

2016 was largely considered a bad year (especially for celebrity deaths). In contrast, I had a fantastic year. I was on ITV’s hit show The Next Great Magician. I was made a member of The Inner Magic Circle with Gold Star and had more bookings than ever before. 31st December I had the perfect finish when […]
