What Does a Close-Up Magician Do?

You’ve probably seen YouTube videos of close-up magicians at work. They approach members of the public, start chatting to them and within seconds they’re amazing them with stunning magic happening right under their noses. Usually, a close-up magician will use ordinary objects, borrowed from the public, such as coins, a handkerchief, or banknotes, as the centrepiece of their tricks.


Richard performs close-up magic, walk-around magic and table magic at weddings, gala dinners, private parties, and reunions. He will mingle with guests at a reception, as if he’s one of them, engage someone in conversation, and surprise them by offering a private magic show for them. Alternatively, he can perform table magic when guests are seated waiting to be served dinner, or between courses.
