My love for magic started when I was a child
like most people with Dad pulling 10p from behind my ear. One day I saw
a magician called Faust produce a leopard, he totally amazed me because
this was all live on stage, not a T.V. in sight I thought WOW! I then watched all the
magic I could from the cool hippy style of Doug Henning to the smarmy David
Copperfield. I watched Paul Daniels religiously and tried to work out
how he did his illusions. Thankfully I have managed to meet and in some
cases work with some of my heroes.
I started as a professional Magician in 1989,
with a season lined up in a holiday camp in
. This year marks my 25th anniversary of being
a professional entertainer.
During the season I was moved and promoted
twice acting as a trouble shooter at problem camps. I ended the season as
Deputy Entertainment's Manager in Hastings.
I decided to move back to the North-East and
over the years I have slowly built up a reputation for providing good solid
entertainment for whatever the occasion may need.
I have performed all over the country and
in various Pubs, Clubs, Camps and Businesses.
I received a certain amount of Fame/Notoriety a couple of years ago and again recently when the fact that I am allergic to rabbits came out in a local paper. I had been interviewed by the local press and Radio Stations, which led to TV appearances on Northern Life.
I have recently appeared in Full House magazine, where they released a full 2 page article about me and the allergy to my rabbit.
I am still allergic to rabbits and I still use
them in the show, because lets be honest a magician with out a rabbit? Whoever
heard anything so daft? I have a 22 year-old son Daniel, who is himself an accomplished close up magician who is available to help at the larger venues where more than 1 magician may be required.
