Latest Close-up Magician Reviews

Owen Strickland Magic
Owen Strickland Magic - Close-up Magician - UK, Midlands Event Location: Alrewas Hayes Wedding Venue 19th October 2018
We booked Owen having seen his amazing magic at a wedding fayre prior to our big day. As impressive as he was in this environment, in a 'live' setting he really made a big impression on friends and family. I can truthfully say that booking Owen was probably one of the best decisions we made. Booked to fill the 'lull' period between sit down meal and the arrival of our evening guests, Owen was never intrusive and mingled with our guests in an friendly, approachable manner that had them amazed with a variety of illusions that had everyone talking the following morning over breakfast. What was a particularly nice touch was a card trick performed specifically for myself and wife which he then framed in a presentation case for future memories. Can thoroughly recommend Owen. He really did light up our wedding..

Cameron Jameson - Close-up Magician - Phoenix, Arizona Event Location: Phoenix, AZ 20th August 2018
Cam came to perform some 'walk-around' magic at a 100+ person corporate Grand Opening Party I had and he was absolutely FABULOUS! He was the biggest hit of the night and truly engaged the crowd and blew people away with not only his skill but his charismatic personality as well. He is very professional and a true expert at his trade. If you are looking to add a fun touch to your event, HIRE CAM! I would and will be booking him again in a heart beat :) Thanks again, Cam!

Ostovani - Close-up Magician - SAN DIEGO, California Event Location: San Diego 4th August 2018
Just wow! My wife and I caught a live performance last month for our anniversary, and Derek completely blew our minds! Almost a month later, we're still talking about that show and how much we want to see him again. If you have the opportunity to see Derek perform, do it! He really knows how to engage his audience and get everyone involved in the magic. You will not be disappointed, I promise! In addition to the magic, Derek is quite the comedian, whether he knows it or not. He had the whole crowd in stitches! We definitely plan on seeing Derek perform again soon!
