Absolutely awesome magic entertainment! Chris & Jo, Wedding, London

Although interested since a young child, it wasn’t until the age of 18 that Martin J Magic began learning the art of ‘Close-up Magic’. At the age of 21, Martin J Magic flew to Spain attempting to make a living in magic, performing his close-up act in bars for tips. After two months of performing seven nights per week he had been noticed by the management of the largest variety show venue in Spain. There he became the resident magician & illusionist for five years performing close-up magic on spotlight, table to table in front of audiences of over 1000 nightly.

Recognising his talent, he was offered a spot on the stage which he accepted by developing and performing a double-act dove and parrot magic act, followed by making a 16 metre long Lear Jet Aeroplane magically appear on the stage…now known as the World’s largest stage illusion.

Gaining a large amount of experience in visual stage magic & illusions, Martin decided it was time to develop two full shows coupling visual magic with comedy, which proved a huge success. At the age of 25 he was approached by various cruise lines, where he baffled and brought laughter to audiences on over 100 cruise ship contracts for 5 years.

Now in his mid-30s, Martin is now based near London, performing Close-up & Comedy Stage Magic at corporate events, weddings, private parties and more in London, throughout the UK & worldwide upon request!

“Absolutely awesome magic entertainment!”

Chris & Jo, Wedding, London, August 2019

“Martin J Magic was simply fantastic. Performed for guests at our wedding both during canapés after the ceremony and between courses at dinner, going from table to table amazing our friends and family while they waited for their food. The magic was stunningly good as well as Martin’s friendly attitude, but we were also very pleased with his professionalism at the event - he arrived, set up and began entertaining without us having to do anything, which made our day so much easier. Could not recommend highly enough, thanks Martin!”

Chris, Wedding, East Sussex, July 2019

“Thank you Martin J Magic for being an important part of the friendly atmosphere at the Wedding ...your Spanish helped the grooms family feel welcome and included apart from being amazed at the tricks! You were much appreciated”

Sue, Wedding, London, April 2019

“Martin J Magic improved the fun of the evening for everyone and was wonderful with my 5 year old granddaughter, who was entranced and delighted with him. Martin was prompt and most pleasant and cheerful. People were thrilled by his magic and there were roars of laughter from different groups he played to. He brought variety and excitement to the evening and gasps of surprise. He responded well to requests meant to beat him and, of course, triumphed!”
