Street Magician

Street Magician. Fergus has been known for his street magic style since he first turned professional just over 10 years ago. During the 90s street magic was popularised when David Blaine burst onto the scene in 1999. For the first time in the history of magic, tricks were performed close-up – a foot from people’s faces! Despite being just 10 years old, Fergus immediately fell in love with this way of performing. Moreover, it was arguably a catalyst for his interest in the art. Fergus’ showreel (featured below) is a brilliant example of exactly what you can expect from a street magician. Straightaway you will notice the tricks are performed out and about in an informal manner with everyday objects. Unsurprisingly, as the term dictates, the street magic showreel was filmed around various street locations in the Greater London area.

What is a street magician?

A street magician isn’t necessarily someone who performs on the street. It is a broader term used to describe a magician who performs mind-blowing magic at close quarters and has a more modern/contemporary style. Significantly, a street magician often performs with small objects that audiences are familiar with such as cards, coins, rings, bottles etc. Often, these objects are borrowed and belong to the audience watching. Comparatively, other types of magicians might introduce object that appear out of place. Conversely, a street magician tends to work with props we as an audience are familiar with or use on a day-to-day basis. So if you haven’t yet done so, watch Fergus’ showreel at the top of this page for a clear idea of exactly what to expect.

Where will this style of magic work?

A street magician is suitable for any event. Street magic tricks are largely the same as close-up magic in two ways. Firstly, they are magic tricks performed with everyday objects. Secondly, the tricks are performed in close quarters to an audience. Consequently, this makes them a perfect addition to events such as cocktail parties, corporate dinners or product launches. Furthermore, it’s worth mentioning that you don’t have to worry, a street magician will still turn up looking smart, you just won’t find a sparkly waistcoat or spinning bow tie in sight!

When can I have a street style magician?

Similar to close-up magic, street magic can fit into just about any part of your event. Furthermore, it is suited for everything from informal events such as a house party, right the way up to the most high-end corporate occasions. Asides from this, it can also be a great style to incorporate into a product launch, trade show, or brand video for social media.  There is a common misconception that a street magician will turn up and look scruffy, we can assure you this is not the case!

Why have a street magician?

So, a street magician is a great option when you are looking for a performer who is a little different. Asides from performing as a corporate magician for some of the biggest brands in the world, Fergus can adapt his style to be  more informal. After all, it is exactly this style of performing that begun is journey into magic. Without Blaine, who knows where we could be! Moreover, Fergus’ style is slick and simple – the one thing you can guarantee is that Fergus won’t turn up in a spinning bow tie or sparkly waistcoat! Unquestionably, he is one of the county’s leading street magic performers.

“What a great show! Fergus performed Via Zoom at our office holiday party, and it was so interactive & fun. At a time when so many of us are feeling fatigued by virtual, I highly recommend connecting with him if you’re looking for an energizing event to host.”

“Absolutely incredible! Fergus wowed our team and clients at a summer party we hosted in London last month. He was a complete master, knew how to work the room to get the atmosphere going and then finished with an awesome show that everyone who attended couldn’t stop talking about. Thank you Fergus!”

Don’t take our word for it…

Fergus is not only a hugely talented magician – one of the finest close up magicians in the country – but also the nicest guy you’ll ever meet. He’s one of very few I’d recommend: you and your guests will absolutely adore him

We had Fergus perform two shows in the lead up to Christmas and they were an absolute hit with everyone! The show is super engaging, polished and absolutely mind-blowing. Working with Fergus before and after the shows was also a pleasure. He’s very professional, thoughtful and kind. An all round great experience!

Fergus performed to a packed room of 350+ M&A professionals ranging from aged 19 to 50+ and had the entire room absolutely gripped! The feedback was tremendous and he will go down as one of our all time best 'guest speakers'! Thank you and we look forward to having you back.

It is hard to put into words how grateful we are to Fergus for performing at our wedding. It is probably the 5th time we have seen him perform at either a private or corporate event. Each time his act varies and it’s like we see him for the first time again. He is a truly wonderful person and an absolutely incredible performer. Couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

Fergus was our No 1 choice for our corporate global annual get together for 2020 via Zoom. When you come across a talent like this, he sets a benchmark that's grossly unattainable by others. Humble, astonishingly natural…A guy with a heart the size of the entire Magic Circle, he has EQ that's off the chart and a way about him that genuinely leaves you in awe.
