Martin – Close Up Magician | UK

Over the last 12 years Martin has performed over 2000 shows in the UK, Spain and over 100 of the World’s most prestigious Cruise Ships. A modern Magician with the experience to bring laughter and amazement to any event!

The Show

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, even borrowed and everyday objects! Signed cards appear in Martin’s pockets, impossibly into his wallet and even magically change in the spectators hands! Coins fall UPWARDS, sponge rabbits have a mind of their own and borrowed notes change in value!

The highlight of the show is Martin’s signature routine, involving a pen, a note…and a LEMON!
If gasps, smiles & laughter sound appealing for your next event, Martin is the perfect choice.
A world class group and table hopping act for all corporate, weddings and private events with added charisma and finesse.

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, the Benidorm Palace. He then became the resident magician for five years performing close-up magic on spotlight, table to table in front of audiences of over 1000 nightly. Recognising his talent, the Benidorm Palace offered him a spot 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 appearance. Gaining a large amount of experience in visual stage magic, 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 has been baffling and bringing laughter to audiences for the last 5 years!

“Martin drove from Spain to Switzerland to perform at my son’s Bar Mitzvah, he even learnt his show in French which was such a nice surprise as many of our family don’t speak English. Thank you for a great show that my son will never forget!”
