Although Close Up Magic is my specialty, I also perform in an illusion double act with my good friend and colleague Richard Young. The shows that we perform are larger in scale but do also contain sleight of hand magic, with plenty of audience interaction. Performing on stage as appose to up close, is very different and equally as enjoyable. There seems to be a common misconception that stage performance is somehow easier, as the stage illusions do the work for you. I can safely say, having performed close up, cabaret and stage magic that stage magic is the hardest get to right.
The video in this blog is a promotional trailer for the Champions of Magic show which our double act performs in. If you wanted to see some live theatre magic then do check out the website http://www.championsofmagic.co.uk. It’s a touring show which is well worth going to see.
