Steven can perform in a number of different scenarios. Steven takes the traditional form of magic and flips it on its head. His close up shows can be performed as a mix 'n mingle scenario or at tables in between courses. Steven is also able to perform his shows on stage and has a specific act tailored to this scenario.
"If I were to ask you what magic is you would probably say something like: "Sleight of hand", "Deception of the fingers", "Misdirection" and similar connotations would come to mind. What if I eliminate all of those things by giving you the cards, asking you to shuffle and eve ... n asking you to just think of a card rather than pick one and still the magic happens. Could it then be plausible?
My magic aims to play with your psyche using what we all have seen other magicians do and yet my magic probably is the closest thing to "real" magic you're ever going to see!"
Steven is an award-winning, professional magician based in London. Steven has performed magic for over a decade and became the youngest ever winner of the Will Ayling Cup (a prestigious close-up award) at just age 16 after coming off of a cruise a month before. Steven's first break was performing at Portsmouth Football Club at the tender age of 13 and being promoted to the hospitality lounge to replace their resident magician at the age of 14.
Steven has travelled around the UK performing for the military, the navy, corporations such as Coca-Cola, Football clubs as well as your usual season ... al events: weddings, parties and private functions. "What a Great decision to book Steven for our event! Created the perfect atmosphere... Charming and friendly mingling with all our guests and amazing them with Close-up Magic. Really Professional, polished performance. Would recommend and book again without hesitation.
Can’t wait until the next time!"
Having trained as a professional actor, specialising in Musical Theatre for the past 3 years at Performance Preparation Academy, Steven has been able to hone his performance ability to create interesting and thought-provoking and engaging material that gives you the sense that magic isn't what you perceive but rather what you think you perceive. Steven is now represented by 2 of the UK's top entertainment agencies and continues to work closely with them.
