With such extensive performing experience Martin has mastered the art of witty, comedic Close-up Magic!
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 ho ... pping Close-up Magician for all corporate, weddings, birthday parties, Christmas / Xmas parties and private events with added charisma and personality!

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.
At 31 years old and now based in London, Martin performs Close-up & Comedy Stage Magic at corporate events, weddings, private parties and more in London, throughout the UK & worldwide upon request.
