Close-Up Magic Videos

Richard Young’s Close-Up Magic Showreel


This video certainly counts as one of my magic career highlights! As the Live Sky News broadcast continues in the foreground, you’ll see me in the background performing one of my spectacular magic tricks. The video of my photobombing stunt quickly went viral and was viewed 6 million times in just 24 hours. I was featured in press coverage around the world.


Take a look at me working my magic on stage and TV, with the help of ‘Strange’, my trusted sidekick.


I was delighted to get to work with the magicians Penn & Teller. This is my second appearance on their show ‘Fool Us’, filmed in Las Vegas, 2017.


This was a great campaign I worked on with PayPal, which involved me going undercover as a magician for a filmed sequence in a local shop.
