What is close-up magic?

A close-up magician is a magician who performs short sets at close quarters during your event (think of Fergus like an extremely sociable guest!). This type of magic was hugely popularised by the infamous David Blaine in the late 90s. Most likely because witnessing magic 1ft from your face is hard to comprehend. Furthermore, close up magic is less about the magician and more about the reactions of the audience.

Fergus will circulate between small groups of people performing close up card tricks, close up magic with phones, money, and people’s minds. His magic is contemporary and inclusive – you won’t find a naff tie or bad pun in sight! As one of the countries busiest magicians, Fergus brings groups of guests together and leaves them with the ultimate talking point for years to come. Having incredible close up magic also provides a fantastic opportunity for any photographer to catch the stunned faces of your guests! If you are in any doubt, see for yourself.
