I'm an award winning magician and member of the Magic Circle in London. I have performed aboard the Pacific Princess cruiseliner as a guest artist as well as being the mentalist for Pepsico in Madrid-Spain.
I mainly perform close-up magic and mind-reading at weddings, corporate events and private celebrations, however I also do stand-up shows.
I don't perform for children's parties and focus on adult magical entertainment. If however, there are children at an event, I always having something up my sleeve for them..literally!
I have performed for several celebrities such as Sir Steve Redgrave our Olympic rower, Peter Jones from Dragons Den, and Prue Leith (see quote below.
Quote: What a brilliant magician you are, and not just because you can turn sterling into dollars and wrap up peoples' rings and find their playing cards — and I have never seen any of those tricks better done and some I've never seen at all before — but because you were so utterly charming and fun to be with. I would recommend you anytime."

Ian gave an excellent and very memorable demonstration of his amazing skills.
He is so friendly and engaging and the whole family thoroughly enjoyed the evening. I can’t recommend Ian highly enough.
An evening that will live long in the memory.

"'I was delighted with the way you interacted with our members and the obvious delight they took in the magic you performed. It was great way to get everyone in the mood for a good night. I noticed several people picked up your card from my table with interest. I am sure the rest of the tables were the same. I sincerely hope it generates more business for you. It would be well deserved.'

"'We both would just like to say that it was an absolute pleasure to have you perform at our wedding. You we're the topic of conversation throughout the evening with your fantastic magic! I will gladly recommend you to anyone thinking of booking a magic act for their event!'

Do you do open-air acts?
I can perform open-air acts, however usually weather, mainly how cold it is, depicts whether it is possible or not.
How long is the act?
I tend to perform say at a wedding function for 2 hours. Sometimes I get booked to do just a show for half an hour. It does depend on what you are looking for.
What type of magic do you perform
I perform close up magic with everyday objects, as well as mind reading or as we call it, mentalism, which is a fusion of magic, suggestion and psychology to create an illusion of a 6th sense.
Will your magic suit my event?
Magic is very versatile so suits most events. Mixing and mingling close up magic is non disruptive and engages people, whether in a business event or private party. Stand up shows are ideal for before or after dinner
How many people will you perform for?
With close up magic I can perfrom for any number if it is mixing and mingling, however should you request table magic and you want every table to see some magic, then 120 is probably the maximum numbers. Otherwise any more and you will need two magicians.
Do you have Public Liability insurance?
Yes I do.
