Ask a Magician, a series of blog posts answering your questions! – Issue I
What’s your style?
In this issue, the question comes from Hollie in Birmingham, who asks:
Do you have a specific style of performance?
Absolutley Hollie! For me, the best thing about magic is that connections that are formed when people are a part of something impossible. This is true of both my close up magic & my stage shows. Many magicians say that they ‘bring people together’ through their performances but I’ve often found that to be more words than implementations.
The difference I’ve identified with my performance style is it’s not about just arrogantly showing off tricks. Of course, the magic needs to be impressive and impossible. I know that it is, because of the reactions I get as shown in the above photograph or the video below.
But more than that people need to feel comfortable enough to want to be involved. When people hire me as a magician, they don’t want their guests hanging around on the edges. That’s why my magic is firstly conversational! Guests are able to create the show with me, so just imagine people finding their own card, reading each other’s mind or getting the big laugh that makes then the talk of the night!
That’s a unique style, that not only fits my outgoing nature but also benefits the people who get
to watch to be a part of my show!
