Award Winning close up and strolling magic
Well into his 19th year as a Magician Richard credits his sustained passion of magic to a sheer love of the art form and the personal qualities it provided him with. Richard's crowning achievement as a child came when at the age of just 14 he was crowned the winner of the prestigious 'Young Magicians Close-Up Magic Competition'. The competition consisted of members of the 'Young Magicians Club' (a division of The Magic Circle reserved especially for budding young Magicians) and was judged by a panel of elite Professional Magicians. His feat was even more remarkable by the fact that he was one of only two finalists without the benefit of professional tutoring.
He has been booked to perform for many different national companies and celebrities including Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear fame and Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton.
In 2008 after being nominated by two highly regarded existing members, Richard successfully passed the examination criteria and was offered full membership of the world famous Magic Circle in London. This is an exclusive club for Professional Magicians who can perform to the highest standards. Richard now regularly performs across the country professionally at private functions, weddings and corporate events.
The Close-Up Magic which Richard performs is award winning in its own right and is presented in a personable way. His act includes comedy, however the jokes are very much on him and none of the humour makes fun of your guests. They will relax and enjoy the entertainment without worrying they may be embarrassed.
