John Constantine offers high quality magic and entertainment at events and special occasions. \John’s excellent magic, personable manner and witty approach ensures that everybody thoroughly enjoys the experience. He is a full time professional (95% are part time) and a member for over 20 years of Leicester Magic Circle, travelling nationwide.
You can expect at least 2 hours of top quality ‘close up’ magic to your guests whether they are at dinner tables or standing and chatting informally over drinks. John also offers an option to perform a ‘stand up’ comedy magic act (cabaret style) from the front of the room with everyone watching together.
John is a specialist for your event - weddings & adult birthdays to business events and NOT for children's parties, the only magician in the midlands to specialise in this way. You can be sure that all of John's skills and experience are relevant to your event!
The close up magic John Constantine performs is from the repertoires of the world's best magicians. He invests heavily in the books & DVDs that they sell to fellow-magicians and also via the magic consultants that they personally hire. The most important quality though that John offers is an engaging personality and an approach that your guests will really warm to and enjoy. You can expect John to provide unmatchable entertainment and for your guests to give you the very best feedback that you could hope for.

John was amazing and highly accommodating! He was super friendly with the guests. He was able to mingle with guests whether they were queuing or at tables. He also spent extra time at VIP tables for me! Cannot recommend him enough!

absolutely fantastic! Very classic set up, exactly what I was hoping for from a table magician. Charming and entertaining magician, would recommend 100%.
Services From John Constantine-Magician
Corporate Dinner Magic
Do you do open-air acts?
Sometimes - I have performed outdoors in fine weather at garden parties and at some other events in fine weather. This is 'close up' magic ('mix and mingle').
How long is the act?
CLOSE UP MAGIC - 2 hours A typical close up magic booking for almost all events is a standard 2 hours, although John routinely perform for around 2.75 hours WITHOUT extra charge as 'all part of the service'. This is because the guest list may be large (which takes more time) or because the guests have requested more - the entertainment is being so well-received they won't let John go! If you have more than 40 or so guests a really good performer who is being well-received should be performing for over 2 hours. With John Constantine you receive a professional service. STAND UP'/CABARET-STYLE MAGIC - Options available 45 minute show (without any close up beforehand) or... 20-40 minute show, following the 2-2.5 hours of close up magic. (You select the desired length of the stand up show)
What type of magic do you perform
Close up magic. Table Magic. 'Stand up' cabaret magic. Visual & interactive magic. Metal/spoon bending. Mentalism & mind reading magic also available.
Will your magic suit my event?
John Constantine is a specialist for adult celebration events (weddings/adult birthdays) and corporate events. John however does include children with his close up magic who are seated at their parents' tables at events, but does not offer specific children's party entertainment. John performs outstanding visual magic that among the repertoires of famous magicians such as David Copperfield, David Blaine, Dynamo and the late Paul Daniels as well as his own original material. John routinely customises and personalises some of his routines so it is certain to suit your event.
How many people will you perform for?
CLOSE-UP MAGIC - 120 guests By it's nature close up magic means that the magician approaches people around dinner tables or in small groups who are standing and chatting informally over drinks. This means that within the confines of a 2-2.5 hour booking, John realistically can only reach up to 120 guests. If you have more than this John can arrange a second magician at a large discount, otherwise please be prepared to accept that John can only reach the majority rather than all table and will of course ensure tables that you nominate (VIP tables, close colleague or family tables) are not missed out. STAND UP/CABARET-STYLE MAGIC - 20 to 2,000 John can perform to any size audience from 20-2,000 with the following conditions: For audiences up to about 50 or so people John performs a 'stand up' magic act or PowerPoint presentation on magic without lights or amplification For 60-100 people John will need amplification and a hands-free microphone. John does not provide these and clients will have to provide or hire these (John can advise specifications) For 100-2,000 people John will need the amplification specified above and a camera projected on a screen so that the audience can see the objects with which he is performing his magic clearly.
Are you a full-time professional or is your service a part-time sideline?
John Constantine is a full-time professional magician with over 20 years experience. His magic is honed by years of experience and dedication that only being a full-timer can provide. He has had a high-flying professional career in the past when he combined his magic with that occupation but he has been a full time magician now for many years. This previous career required first class communication and presentation skills and top level educational qualifications well beyond graduate level. This means you can be sure of an entertainer that is well-spoken and presented at all times and who can adapt and pitch his delivery according to any and all demographics.
