While having a close up magician at your fundraiser, corporate event or wedding is becoming more common, many people have no idea what to expect and may be put off by some easy to dispel myths. Let me make your misconceptions disappear….
Magic is Only About Tricking Others
This is simply not true. While it is true that magic relies on the magician's ability to misdirect the viewer and perform actions they are unaware of, this is all in the aim of your amazement. A magician is not trying to make a fool of you. Magic is about using skillful techniques to do impossible actions to surprise and delight the audience.
There is nothing more satisfying than seeing the smiles and laughter on people’s faces and knowing they are enjoying themselves. That's what makes close up magic so special
Magic is Just for Children
Some magic tricks are specifically for children, but in reality magic is for everyone. Close up magic at corporate events, fundraisers and weddings can be a really classy addition to proceedings, and tricks can be tailored to the occasion.
Magicians Wear Silly Costumes
The general rule is to dress as smartly as your audience, depending on the occasion. It's rare these days to see a magician, especially a close up magician, in a top hat and tails! Most of the time magicians will match their dress to your event.
I can say with certainty that most close up magicians will not turn up at your event bedecked in sequins, flouncy shirt and big hair, with a glamorous assistant on their arm.
Magic is Only a Hobby
For some people, magic is a hobby; but for close-up magicians, it is their career. Not only are close-up magicians professionals, they have vast amounts of experience performing for hundreds of people at hundreds of events.
Hiring a professional close-up magician can turn your event into a success. Whether you’re looking for light entertainment or a hearty laughter, you can make your event magical with just a dash of magic!
