Let’s start with this video, as it’s a perfect example of why I got into magic.
Yes, snorting. Snorting has to be my most favourite reaction to magic ever – that moment when a person completely let’s go and is so “in the moment” that the only bodily noise they can muster to communicate how they feel – is a snort.
No snorting here I’m afraid (I know, you’re disappointed).
This is a good example of what I do at a table for real, live human beings – I turn up, do a few tricks, make a few jokes and try to get people laughing.
I’ll warn you now, this video is 9 minutes long (and has a swear word in it), but it gives you a good feel for what I do.
“Yes, but not all of our guests are adults. We’ve got children coming too. What can you do for them?”
Not only have I brilliantly anticipated your question, but I have a video that answers it for you!
You don’t need balloons, a horrifically coloured waistcoat and a tie with cute little bunny rabbits on it to keep kids happy and entertained. You just need a strange man with a pack of cards.
I can be that strange man!
