Can’t praise Marin highly enough. He was punctual, polite, extremely good with people and above all an incredible magician. The poor guy had to work on the hottest day of the year, but circulated without stopping for an hour and a half amongst 180 guests during pre-dinner drinks. Everybody there were amazed by his talents and all gave me incredible reviews about him.
Can’t recommend him highly enough. Many thanks Martin.

"""Just a quick thank you to Magician Martin John for performing at our staff doo! His up close magic around the tables was superb and the stand up show to everyone after dinner finished the night off perfectly! Thank you. Will recommend for our future events"""



  • How long is the act?

    If you opt for Close-up Magic, Martin will mingle amongst your guests in groups or at their tables performing for roughly 5 minutes and then moving on to the next. Most common bookings are 1-2 hours. If you are looking for a Comedy Stage Magic Show, the most common length is 30-45 minutes however this can be customised on request to suit.

  • What type of magic do you perform

    Close-up Magic & a Comedy Stage Magic Show

  • Will your magic suit my event?

    Both Close-up Magic & Comedy Stage Magic can be booked for most events. Close-up is ideal for mingling at drinks receptions for weddings & corporate / private parties, also performing around the tables throughout dinner. A Comedy Stage Magic Show is more suitable for after dinner entertainment / Award ceremonies etc.

  • How many people will you perform for?

    Close-up Magic generally per 1 hour approx. 50 - 80 people can be performed to e.g. if Martin performed a 5 minute set to 8-10 groups of 5-8 people. Martin's Comedy Stage Magic Show can be performed to anything from fifty to thousands of people in an audience.

Set List/Services

With masses of experience Martin has mastered the art of witty, comedy Close-up Magic bringing laughter and amazement to guests at weddings, parties & corporate events.

Martin will approach each group at your event and perform magic with cards, coins that fall upwards, ropes, sponge rabbits (a favourite for women & children) and even borrowed and everyday objects! Signed cards appear in Martin’s pockets, impossibly into his wallet and even magically change in the spectators hands. The ultimate Close-up Magic experience from a truly seasoned professional!

Having performed his comedy stage magic act to small audiences of 50, large cruise ship theatres of 1500 & recently to a corporate event of over 4000 people in India, whatever your requirements Martin can work with you every step of the way.

What can you expect to see in the show? After watching the sample video will have a good idea! Martin will spellbound you with his visual magic productions…parasols appear from thin air, silks turn into canes and a metal table will seamlessly levitate around the room and over the heads of the audience! Witness the outcome of a trick that ‘apparently’ needs no rehearsal, followed by a 4 year in the making routine inspired by his great grandfather! With a unique talent to combine magic with comedy, you are guaranteed a fun packed night of entertainment.
