Close up magic - great for larger events where people are at tables or mingling in the bar or foyer.
Close up magic is where Ed provides a unique personal performance for each individual group. If people are seated he provides table to table magic entertaining each individual group. In a standing environment he provides strolling magic where he will mix and mingle with the guests gathering small groups to entertain.
Stand up / Cabaret magic - great for smaller groups (under 30) or in addition to close up magic at larger events (as long we can sort out microphones and staging).
Ed's stand up magic is usually performed in one or two sessions of approx. 25 minutes. It's a magic and comedy show performed that packs small but plays to all of the audience at once. There are chances for people to be involved from where they are sitting, and on stage, but Ed always make sure never to embarrass or belittle anyone. He wants everyone to go away with a positive experience of the show.
Stage magic - Great for very large audience (up to 500).

"I hired Ed for my wedding last year, and I’ve just had him back to perform at a house party we held for my wife’s birthday. Both times, Ed has surprised us with new and inventive magic that has kept our guests talking about him long after he left. I’ve also passed his details on to friends as I’m sure he would be suitable for a wide range of events. Highly recommended! Thank you, Ed."

"Having looked at a number of magicians for my Fiancées 50th birthday party I hired Ed as the feedback and videos were better than any others I could find. Communication from Ed was timely throughout and he was very thorough in finding out my needs and expectations.
With around fifty guests to entertain Ed did a quick demonstration of his skills to the wider audience and then spent the evening doing close up magic with the various groups and individuals. Everyone I spoke to said that he was funny, captivating, affable and absolutely fantastic at mesmerising people with his skills. I was absolutely delighted with everything that he did for our guests and my fiancée was over the moon as it was a surprise for her.
Overall I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ed, not the cheapest on offer but the old adage that you get what you pay for is never more true!"

"Ed was excellent, the perfect act for our gathering. He arrived on time, just as dinner had finished and performed two 25 minute sets building up to a “Grand Finale”. A tough audience of 25 were thoroughly enthralled and entertained. I would not hesitate to recommend Ed to anyone looking for an audience friendly magic act. Oh, and he is a nice guy too!
