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 ...


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.

Martin John - Close-up Magician - Bromley Common, London Event Location: Swindon Event Type: Anniversary 9th September 2023
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.

I wanted to say that the houseparents raved about the magician last night! They said that Martin was extremely popular, great with the teens and younger kids - they absolutely loved it. Definitely one to book again!

Martin John - Close-up Magician - Bromley Common, London Event Location: London Event Type: Christmas Party 22nd December 2022
An outstanding magician! Martin John is by far the best all-round magician my company have encountered to date. I have personally used him on one occasion and twice for my company at Christmas parties, the last of which was 22nd December 2022. On the private function which was in front of 8 adults and numerous children, he was excellent and caused great amusement to all of us with a huge span of ages. Similarly at the company functions, many people told me afterwards that he was the best magician they had ever seen. I have no hesitation in recommending Martin John for any requirements anyone has for an outstanding magician.
