About Joel Bentley
Joel is an award winning magician from Cardiff travelling all over the country to perform his unique blend of sleight of hand magic and psychological manipulation. Joel has been performing magic and psychological illusions as entertainment professionally for a decade. Joel observes people's reactions to certain effects and experiments with cognitive manipulation . He provides a unique perspective on magic, offering you something that you have never seen or experienced before. Joel performs at weddings, corporate functions, award ceremonies, parties, trade shows and any event that needs top class entertainment.
He performs as a psychological illusionist. This basically means that Joel does not restrict himself to just performing magic. Joel combines a number of his own creative techniques to showcase his skills as an entertainer.; creating the illusion of real mind reading, bend coins with his mind, making your guests slip into a hypnotic state, have someone merely think of a playing card and reveal it, all while looking rather sharp in a nice suit! By using psychology, suggestion and a bit of misdirection, Joel creates unforgettable moments, rekindling that child like wonder that was once lost to create what looks and seems impossible!
Joel was amazing !!!
All my guests loved Joel. Excellent value for money. I would recommend 100% Thank you Joel
Wow! Fantastic Magician
Joel attended my sons 18th birthday and entertained 100 people with his sleight of hand magic. There were so many gasps and mouths open with the magic he performed. He literally blew all the guests away!
Joel is a lovely man who takes pride in his job making people happy by entertaining them. So many of my family and friends said they are going to book him for upcoming parties.
I would highly recommend Joel, he made our party. Don’t hesitate to book him for your event as you will not be disappointed. The hire charge is very reasonable too.
10/10 rating from me.
I have seen a lot of close-up magicians but Joel topped them all. His sense of humour and personality, coupled with amazing magic, was fantastic. We were still talking about it the following day. Thank you so much for making my OH’s 60th birthday so special.
OMG this Guy is phenomenal! I can’t recommend him enough he totally entertained all the guests all evening absolutely brilliant magic! Worth every single penny and you are definitely hard again
excellent service , for kids & adults
Joel had a friendly approach to all our guests , performing excellent tricks and slight of hand never tiring to perform for guests will definatly recommend him
Highly recommend and excellent value for money
We have had nothing but positive reviews back for yourself as a close up magician, really friendly and professional and faultless. You added a real wow factor to the evening and people are still trying to work out the tricks you did, which of course they will never be able to do as it is MAGIC.
Exceptional service for an unusual request
It was an unusual corporate request, (involving a presentation to a board of Chief Executives), that Joel instantly understood and then greatly contributed to as a project. Professional, courteous and completely unflappable. Nothing was too much trouble or fazed him at all. I cannot recommend highly enough for any event. Plus, the magic was simply WOW!
Top notch and absolutely amazing!!!
Joel was absolutely amazing! Every party guest I spoke to, including a member of the Magic Circle, was immensely impressed with Joel's expertise, professionalism an incredible talent as a magician. His slight of hand tricks were so clever and left people completely stumped as to how it was done, he totally 'wowed' the crowd. I cannot rate Joel highly enough and would definitely recommend that you look no further for an entertainer and book him quickly!
Personable performance and engaged with everyone
