With such extensive performing experience Martin has mastered the art of amazing visual Magic & comedy Magic, both on Stage & Close-up:
Join a consummate showman for a night of magic, illusion and comedy! Martin will spellbound you with his visual magic productions…parasols appear from thin air, silks turn into canes and objects seamlessly levitate around the room!
Witness the outcome of a trick that ‘apparently’ needs no rehearsal, followed by a 3 year in the making routine inspired by his great grandfather! With a unique talent to combine magic with comedy, you are g ... uaranteed a fun packed night of entertainment. This is your chance to find out what Martin John has up his sleeve!
Martin will approach each group or table and perform magic with cards, coins, ropes, sponge balls, bank notes…even borrowed and everyday objects! Signed cards appear in Martin’s pockets, impossibly into his wallet and impossibly change in the spectators hands. Coins fall UPWARDS, sponge rabbits have a mind of their own and borrowed notes change in value! If gasps, smiles & laughter sound appealing for your next event, Martin John is the perfect choice.
A world class group and table hopping Close-up Magician for all corporate, weddings, birthday parties, Christmas / Xmas parties and private events with added charisma and personality!
Although interested since a young child, it wasn’t until the age of 18 that Martin began learning the art of ‘Close-up Magic’. At the age of 21, Martin flew to Spain attempting to make a living in Magic, performing his close-up act in bars for tips. After two months of performing seven nights per week he had been noticed by the management of the largest variety show venue in Spain. There he became the resident magician & illusionist for five years performing close-up magic on spotlight, table to table in front of audiences of over 1000 nightly. Recognising his talent, he was offered a sp
... ot on the stage which he accepted by developing and performing a double-act dove and parrot magic act, followed by making a 16 metre long Lear Jet Aeroplane magically appear on the stage…now known as the World’s largest stage illusion. Gaining a large amount of experience in visual stage magic & illusions, Martin decided it was time to develop two full shows coupling visual magic with comedy, which proved a huge success. At the age of 25 he was approached by various cruise lines, where he baffled and brought laughter to audiences on over 100 cruise ship contracts for 5 years.
Martin was then approached by the BBC & Channel 4 to perform Magic to the candidates of 'The Apprentice' & LIVE on Channel 4's 'The Last Leg'.
At 38 years old and now based in London, Martin performs Comedy Stage Magic & Close-up at corporate events, weddings, private parties and more in London, throughout the UK & worldwide upon request.
