Frequently asked questions
I’ve tried to answer all your questions in the main pages but here are some others that you might be having. If I still haven’t covered it though just drop me an email and I’ll get back to you with an answer.
Do you travel?
I’d be silly not to wouldn’t I? I’m based in Surrey but I’m happy to travel quite literally everywhere. I’ve been to Kuwait, Switzerland, France, Spain, Ireland, Scotland, Jersey, Germany, Dubai, Mexico, Florida for events. I’m also constantly travelling up and down the UK. I usually just add travel expenses to cover petrol/train fares if it’s outside of the M25 though.
What if you’re ill on the day?
I’ve been working as a magician full time since 2012. I’ve performed at over 1200 different events and in that time I’ve only had to pull out of one event due to sickness and I was able to arrange for another fantastic magician friend to cover for me. Being self-employed if I can’t get to work I can’t pay my rent so I recommend Berocca!
Do you have public liability insurance (PLI)?
I do indeed, I’m insured up to £5,000,000 through BlackFriars Insurance Group.
Why isn’t your phone number on your website?
I took my number off my website a few years back as I was getting a lot of nuisance calls. I’m happy to give you a call back if you email me though.
How long do you usually perform for?
The average event with the average amount of people would probably be around two – three hours, but I can perform for however long (or short) that you want me for!
Do you do kid’s parties?
Sadly not. I find anything under 13 and my tricks go over their heads. If there are going to be a few children at your event though I have a couple of tricks that are a bit more visual that they can enjoy!
Are you a member of the magic circle?
I am indeed. I was voted in on my first audition by a unanimous decision!
Do you give magic lessons?
I do actually! I’ve taught everyone from teenagers through to managing directors and whole groups in corporate team building days how to do magic. It’s a great hobby to learn to impress friends and makes a great present for a loved one. Email me for prices 🙂
Who is your favourite magician?
I have a few! I really like Penn and Teller. If you haven’t seen them it’s certainly worth a you tube session. I grew up watching David Blaine so obviously him but my favourite magician to watch at the moment is Michael Carbonaro on his show “The Carbonaro Effect”. Follow me on Facebook as I usually post videos of my favourite acts.
What’s your day job?
Believe it or not, magic is my day job. I do around 200 events a year which is quite a lot of admin but I’ve been full-time since 2012.
