About Magician & Ventriloquist
I am a multi-award winning cabaret magician and the current 2017-2018 Magician of the Year, as awarded by the Manchester Circle of Magicians. I can provide a magic and puppet show, party games, magic workshop, circus skills workshop along with other activities for your birthday party, wedding, christening or event.
For children’s events; my one-hour comedy magic & puppet show features tricks such as metal bending, linking hula hoops and producing coins from behind children's ears. I have puppet routines with a turtle, crocodile or monkey puppet and effects where a child finds the missing piece to a jigsaw puzzle or solve a Rubik's cube. Every show is different as I cater the performance based on their age range, number in attendance and if they have seen me before.
In the two-hour party package we follow the show with party games such as Group Dances, Musical Bumps, Play Parachute, Pass-the-Parcel, Scavenger Hunt, Musical Statues and the Conga. All the games have been adapted to not eliminate any children and I provide the prizes along with the music. I also try to make all the children a balloon animal during the two-hour show (depending on how many are in attendance) where they get to pick from a menu the balloon they want.
For adult events I can provide close-up magic featuring card tricks, ring manipulation, metal bending, mind reading and magical Rubik cube solving. I can provide table hopping services performing a show at each, working my way around the room. Or walk-around magic with tricks that happen in your guests hands. I can also provide an adult cabaret stage magic show.
A little bit about me; I retired from being a high-school teacher to become a full-time magician in 2008. I was featured on Britain's Got Talent, have won five magic competitions and I currently host and produce my own web series with over 200 episodes so far. I have written and produced over fifty books and DVDs on magic and lectured around the world.
Birthday parties, christenings, weddings, bar and bat mitzvah, school shows, Christmas parties, festivals and events.
Booked Stephen at pretty short notice, great communication. None of the standard packages worked for us so Stephen discussed what we wanted and met the brief really well.
We had an hours 'show' for about 40-50 kids aged 2 to 10, Stephen kept their attention and the kids loved it. Following the formal show Stephen went round the tables while the kids are the buffet and made sure everyone had a balloon animal made.
Really impressed, good value too!
Amazing in every way!
Amazing Stephen recently performed at our son's 1st birthday party where there was a real mix of ages attending. He lived up to his name as he literally was amazing! Kept all the kids entertained, performed cool tricks and kept the whole party captivated...even the parents who I think enjoyed some of it more than the kids ha ha!
Thanks for a great party, I was genuinely worried that all these kids would get bored and start to mess about but their bums were glued to the floor as they were totally captivated! Loved it, would definitely recommend!
