London Close-up Magician

Martin John - Close-up table Magician based in LondonOver the last 12 years, Martin has performed over two thousand shows worldwide as a professional Close-up Magician!  Now based in London, Martin travels to perform at events all over London, UK wide & worldwide on request.

With masses of experience Martin has mastered the art of witty, comedic Close-up Magic bringing laughter and amazement to guests at weddings, parties & corporate events!

Martin will approach each group at your event and perform magic with cards, coins that fall upwards, ropes, sponge rabbits (a favourite for women & children) and even borrowed and everyday objects! Signed cards appear in Martin’s pockets, impossibly into his wallet and even magically change in the spectators hands.  

Depending on the amount of people at the event, Martin’s average time spent performing to each group is approximately five to seven minutes.  This however is completely flexible.  If you have a large event with hundreds of people, Martin can perform shorter but equally as effective routines.  For small events such as dinner parties, Martin can perform up to two different 10 minute routines to the same table, basically anything can be covered.  If the event has hundreds of people attending, Martin can either recommend another Professional Close-up Magician to work alongside him, or can also offer his Comedy Stage Magic Act which he has performed to audiences up to 4000!

Close-up Magic is the perfect ice-breaker for wedding cocktail receptions, parties & corporate events.  Any event where people are in a small group is perfect for Close-up Magic!

  “We normally rotate our acts on a 6-12 month basis…we had Martin for 5 years! Martin performed over one thousand shows with us on spotlight table to table. In this time we were never disappointed and were glad to have him with us.

Martin, the door is always open…come back soon!”

Vicente Climent – Director of Benidorm Palace, Spain

London Table Magician

Martin also performs as a Table Magician.  Table Magic is often used for weddings at the wedding breakfast / evening reception, corporate functions, corporate dinners, parties, Birthday parties, Christmas parties…the list is endless.  Basically any event where you have guests sitting at tables is ideal for Table Magic.

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.

Mind Reading in London  

You’ve seen it on the television…now it’s time to have your mind read for real.

Watch in disbelief as Martin guesses a colour that you are merely thinking of…over and over again!

Still not convinced?  Think of a time.  A time that relates to a very important event in your life, perhaps the time that your child was born for example.

How could Martin possibly have predicted this EXACT time?

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 30 years old, Martin is now based in London performing at weddings, corporate events & parties around the country.


 “Martin, it has been a tough cruise with many itinerary problems, however after your performances the whole atmosphere on the ship has dramatically changed!
You seriously have saved the day, thank you very much for everything!”
