What Is Close-up Magic?
Close up Magicians can be described in a variety of ways. You may have heard the phrases “Table Magic”, “Mix and Mingle Magician”, “Sleight of Hand Magician” or even “Strolling Magical Entertainer”. These phrases demonstrate perfectly the versatility of Close up Magic and the array of situations and events that it can enhance. The beauty of Close up Magic lies in its flexibility. It is perfectly portable and easy to employ exactly when and where it is needed. Instead of using large props close-up magic uses everyday objects including borrowed items from spectators to make the magic even more personal. Rather than demanding attention from a stage, it involves those who wish to be involved while bypassing anyone who doesn’t. It requires no specialist equipment or lengthy set-up. Most importantly, well-performed Close up Magic creates the talking point that can really bring your guests together.
what is Parlour magic?
Parlour magic is done for larger audiences than close-up magic and for smaller audiences than stage magic. In parlour magic, the performer is usually standing and on the same level as the audience, which may be seated on chairs or even on the floor. An alternative term for this branch of magic may be “platform,” “club” or “cabaret.”
Each performance can be tailored to suit your needs. The type of humour Ed delivers really depends on the client’s request.
