“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.” – Albert Einstein
Magic exists – because we want it to exist. Magic was born from our own innate sense of wonder. We have always been fascinated by the unknown, charmed by the unexplained and drawn to those who seem to know the answers.
The magician allows us to experience the unreal in reality, right in front of your very eyes! Leaving the everyday behind, you move into the realm of the astonishment; introduced to a world where the impossible is demonstrated time and time again. I had the opportunity to experience this first hand.
MagicianUK is the official site for professional magician Ed Clarke, master of illusion and prestidigitation. Ed Clarke’s interest in magic began early. Even as child, he knew magic was going to be a big influence in his life. Years of research have been followed by more than a decade of professional performance. Ed Clarke has performed at events and appeared on Television all over the world.
Many magicians require distance from their audience to achieve their illusions, relying on elaborate props and staging. Ed Clarke prefers more personal experiences with the audience. Specialising in “close-up” magic, Ed Clarke engages in close encounters of the magical kind, employing mentalism and sleight-of-hand illusions that are all the more astounding because they happen right before your eyes.
Witty, engaging and highly entertaining, Ed Clarke combines personal and professional charm to entertain guests; instinctively recognising which guests will enjoy participating in his magical effects, whilst accommodating those that prefer to remain spectators. Good humoured and personable, Ed Clarke’s feats of illusion focus on fun, drawing smiles and laughter from all around. – Stephen Huntley (Working links)
