Doug’s unique style redefines peoples perception of this ancient art form. Doug has a fresh innovative approach, which stimulates and encourages audience interaction creating an experience, which stays with the audience. There are two performance options that Dean can offer, close-up magic and cabaret magic.
Close-up magic is very versatile. It can be used to entertain small groups in a mix and mingle situation or at tables during the course of a meal. Doug Segal utilises items such as cards, coins, ropes even borrowed objects from his audience (This means he steals watches but he always gives them back!). Making this form of magic even more amazing and interactive.

Doug Segal has also been at the forefront of wedding magic for many years, it’s this experience which enables Doug to walk in to a room full of strangers and engage them with powerful, entertaining magic creating that something special that your guests won’t forget in a hurry.

“One of the funnier & more entertaining mental illusionists”
“The event was great thanks and all the performers did a fantastic job… Doug was great too. His mix and mingle worked well though was clearly suited to the slightly more spacious/quiet areas of the venue as his work requires more engagement from the crowd. Despite the cramped conditions, he worked very hard and spent time.”
