Christmas / Xmas Party Magician
If you are looking for a Close-up Magician to perform at your Christmas / Xmas party this year in London or anywhere in the UK, Professional Magician Martin John is the perfect choice. Recently seen performing on Channel 4’s ‘The Last Leg’, Martin has performed over two thousand shows worldwide in the UK, Spain and over 100 of the World’s most prestigious cruise ships…so you are in safe hands with an experienced professional Magician!
Martin will approach each group or table at your Christmas party 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.
Christmas / Xmas Party Table Magician
Martin also performs as a Table Magician. Table Magic is often used at Christmas / Xmas Parties as alongside standing guests, Martin will stroll from table to table perform to the dining guests or simply guests seated around tables.
Martin will approach each table performing specially designed routines to be seen by all at any size table. How does this kind of magic work if the people at the tables are eating? Don’t worry…Martin performs table to table in between courses, creating a fantastic atmosphere at each table. Will he get in the way of the waiters?! As the 5 year resident at a dinner & dance show venue performing over two thousand shows, Martin has more than enough experience to work in any situation. If a waiter approaches the table ‘mid-routine’, Martin actually includes them in the routine! You can be assured of a comfortable, professional approach at every table.
How many hours will Martin perform at our Christmas Party?
As Martin freely walks around performing from table to table or group to group, close-up magic can be performed for as long or as little as required. 1-3 hours are normally requested depending on the amount of guests attending the Christmas/Xmas. Martin’s average routine lasts between 5 & 7 minutes per group, therefore in one hour approximately 10 groups/tables can be performed to. Close-up magic is therefore suitable for your Christmas/Xmas party if you have up to approximately 30 tables/groups, however if you have more than this Martin can either perform for a shorter amount of time at each table or can also recommend a second professional Magician to accompany him.
Another option would be to consider Martin’s Comedy Stage Magic Act. Martin has performed his comedy cabaret act to events holding over 3000 people and as little as 10! Therefore whatever your needs, Martin can help you cater for all your entertainment needs in any area of the UK as a close-up table/group hopping magician or comedy cabaret magician.
Does it matter where my Christmas Party is being held or how loud the music is?
Close-up magic is so versatile and visual that whether your event is inside, outside, quiet or loud with music, your guests will still appreciate the miracles that appear to be happening right under their noses!

Biography & Experience
At the age of 21, Martin flew to Spain attempting to make a living as a Close-up Magician 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 prestigious 2000 seater 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! Being presented with multi-lingual audiences, Martin learnt his show in Spanish & French. Over the five year period performing 5 nights per week, Martin gained a huge amount of experience as a Close-up Table Magician, performing over 1000 shows!
Recognising his talent, the Benidorm Palace offered Martin a spot on the stage, which he accepted by developing and performing a double-act dove and parrot magic act, followed by flying to Las Vegas in 2006 to purchase a Lear Jet Aeroplane to make 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 baffled and brought laughter to audiences perfoming his Close-up & Comedy Stage Magic shows for a further 5 years!
At 32 years old, Martin is now based in London performing at Christmas / Xmas Parties, weddings, corporate events & parties around the country.
