About me

About me

Now that we've met, you can call me Brian.

I am a dad of two (now adults) and married to my lovely supportive wife Janice. I am a proud Member of The Magic Circle, the UK's most prestigious magic club in the UK. Members include King Charles and Sooty! I am also a very proud Member of The South London Magic Society, 'The friendliest Magic Club in the UK'.

I've been an entertainer for 25+ years, even ran 'The Streatham Comedy Club' in London for 8 years. I booked acts like Romesh Ranganathan and Rob Beckett, and worked with pros like Kevin Day. I compered, performing 'Crap Magic' to get laughs flowing.

I'm comfortable performing for all ages, from grown-ups to kids. I started doing children's magic for my kids and their friends, which led to bookings for parties, schools, and local halls. I've done charity gigs too, supporting causes close to my heart (although I can't count how many times I've been asked to do magic for free). Let's make magic happen at your event!

King Charles is the most prestigious Member of The Magic Circle.

Sooty is a arguably the most famous Member of The Magic Circle.

I am DBS checked and happy to share the details during the booking process.

I have spent most of my career working as an Advertising Creative Director in some of London's most respected advertising agencies, which trained me to speak and perform for the hardest audience in the world - prospective blue chip clients! Using magical techniques and mind persuasion is far more interesting than listening to a Powerpoint Presentation.

Some other little things about me that you may give you an insight into my journey to becoming a Magician. I was a Rubik's Cube Champion in the 80's when the cube launched and became a craze the first time round. I was privileged enough to meet Erno Rubik the inventor, and I appeared in the national press and on national TV too! Maybe that explains the dexterity I use in my magic today?

As well as performing as a magician I regularly play the part of Santa Claus for a local charity, where I've learned that most children don't tidy their bedrooms until around Christmas time, and even then it's only in return for gifts!

I can also claim to have met a living Saint! During my early advertising days I was introduced to Mother Teresa in Calcutta where she gave me her 'business card'. Life can sometimes be strange. 

Whether you're looking for an entertainer for a children's party, wedding, christening, barmitzvah, festival fete, sports day, fun day, corporate event, school, church hall, cabaret, cafe or pub garden, get in touch. Whatever your event, big or small I'll can bring some magic and sparkle to the day.

Before I becoming a Magician...

Comedy Club Compere

Me performing some 'Crap Magic' at my comedy night 'The Streatham Comedy Club' London.

Santa Claus?

Santa at the local Christmas fete looks very similar to Mr Magii. They can't be the same guy, as there is only one Santa Claus right?

Rubik's Cube Champion

I wish I still had the same build today - this is me receiving my Rubik's Cube trophy from the sponsor The Daily Mirror.

Meeting a Saint

This is the business card Mother Teresa (now Saint Teresa of Calcutta) gave me.
