What is your favourite magicians trick for weddings?
I’m known for my amazing cutlery besting magic trick
What was your first ever trick that you performed?
The first ever trick I performed was from Hamley’s toy shop when I was 8 called dynamic coins
You have performed for many corporate clients as well, what do you find is the difference between corporate and weddings?
The difference between corporate and wedding is that corporate has a defined brand or idea that needs to come cross during your show. Weddings it’s a lot more causal or jazz magic, whereby you don’t know who you’re going to meet.
How long do you perform for at weddings?
I perform on average two hours at weddings.
Has a bride or groom ever involved you in a trick/prank with their guests?
I’ve never been involved in a prank as such, some couples pretend I’m a friend and do not tell their guests that I am coming to the wedding as part of the surprise.
What has been your most memorable event/occasion that you have performed in your career?
Most memorable event I have had the pleasure of performing at was for Britain’s Got Talent in 2010, I got to perform for Michael McIntyre, David Hasslehoff, Ant n Dec and Amanda Holden in front of 1000 seater theatre. Was incredible!
