What type of performance is best suited to my event?
Close - up Magic
The close-up magic / strolling magic / mix & mingle magic is very popular for corporate events, weddings, charity balls, birthday parties and just about any other event. This type of entertainment in nonintrusive, so will not interfere with speeches or any other interruptions that may take place at an event. Close-up magic is super impressive and loads of fun. If Carl is mid-performance and a speech starts, the magic can just stop, then continue after the speech.
Stand - up Magic
The stand-up magic / stage magic / cabaret magic show is popular for charity balls, private parties, theatre style events, comedy clubs, corporate events or any event where the audience are seated facing the performance area. This act requires all guests to be seated and ready to enjoy 10 - 45 minutes of uninterrupted comedy and magic. "All eyes on me, please"! The bar is closed, no noise coming from other rooms, no TV's on, and no staff mingling around. Watch close. You don't want to miss this.
Parlour magic is a mixture of close-up magic and stand-up magic. This act is great for events where there are a small amount of guests, say around !ve to thirty people. All guests are sat around one table or are in one group. Carl stands in front of the audience, without a microphone, and performs some stunning close-up magic and impressive and fun cabaret style illusions.
The parlour magic is great for small birthday parties, corporate events and private parties.
Secret Room Magic
The secret room magic is lots of fun. Carl sets up in a small room, separated from the main event. a small group of about ten to twenty people are sent into the room and sat down. Carl performs some amazing magic to wow the guests. After ten minutes the guests leave the room without telling anyone what's going on in there. The next group are sent in and Carl repeats the act.
This is loads of fun and very popular for themed events and corporate events.
