What is a Close up Magician?
A close up magician is someone who performs tricks and illusions to small groups of people right in front of their eyes. Using everyday objects like cards, coins, rubber bands and rings etc they can perform mind bending tricks where you just cannot see how it is done. Sometimes referred to as an illusionist or close hand magician. Roger will perform to small groups enthralling them with his close up magic.
Whenever Roger performs at an event one of the most common things he hears is “I have never been so close to a magician and when you see it on TV you just assume it is all camera tricks, but when you see it for real you can’t really believe it!”

How do you become a Close up Magician?
Roger started performing magic when he was about 6 years old when he received the iconic Marvins Magic Set for Christmas. This is a world famous box of tricks for children and if your little ones or big ones are interested in magic then this is a great way to get them started.
He started working through those tricks on Christmas day and by the afternoon had worked out how to do a few with some help from his dad and performed a small show in the evening. From that moment on he was hooked but it wasn’t until he saw a professional Magician performing at a wedding ten years later that he really thought this is what he wanted to do. He spoke to him after he had finished and he taught him a trick that he still uses today, he also advised him to join a local magic club and to just keep practicing. Roll forward 20 years and Roger is now a professional magician for hire, and regularly perform at corporate events, weddings and parties across the south of England.
