close up magic

My favourite close up magic tricks

Every professional magician has their favourite magic trick that they love to perform for audiences. I love all my tricks, so it’s impossible for me to pick just one favourite. However, I have managed to narrow it down to my top five close up magic tricks which always get a great reaction from my audiences, which in turn makes them fun to perform. In fact, I like them so much I’ve made videos of them! Have a look and you’ll understand why these tricks are so popular, and why people regularly ask me to perform them.

1 – Amazing interactive card trick

My amazing interactive card trick is very quick. It takes no longer than 30 seconds to perform – probably less time than the reactions I get from my amazed audience! Even though it’s on video, try choosing a different card every time you watch – you’ll be blown away by the results.

2 – Interactive magic number trick

Don’t be put off by the fact that I’m asking you to do maths – it’s very easy! Even more astonishing is the way I’ll get the right number time after time after time. At the beginning of my interactive magic number trick, I’ll ask you to pick a number and then follow my instructions; at the end, I’ll let you know what your answer is. Spooky!

3 – How a deck of playing cards is made!!

Have you ever wondered how a deck of playing cards is made? If you’ve guessed that it’s an extremely normal, boring process done in a factory, you could be wrong… It’s much more magic than that, as I demonstrate in the video. As you’d expect, as a magician I use a lot of packs of cards, so this handy trick is great when my stocks run low!

4 – Mobile banking magic trick

Even though we’ve adapted to contactless payments, there’ll always be times when you’re out with friends only to discover you’re at a cash-only bar and no one knows where the nearest cash machine is. I’ve got that sorted in the form of a mobile banking magic trick. Unfortunately, the app is only available to magicians at the moment, but wouldn’t it be nice if all banks implemented this mobile feature!

5 – Chewing gum magic

We all like to keep our mouths minty fresh, but we can be quite particular about which chewing gum we use. So what if you’re at a wedding and want to freshen your breath, but no one has the gum you like best? Fortunately, I can take any pack of chewing gum and change it to your favourite flavour in just a second.

If you’re organising any event, be it a wedding, birthday party or corporate do, book me to entertain your guests with these tricks and many more. Get in touch to find out more.
