Close-up Magic

Close-up magic (also know as table magic or mix-and-mingle magic) is performed in an intimate setting usually no more than a foot from one's audience. Close-up magic is usually performed while people are standing with drinks at a reception or seated at a table.

Cabaret Magic

Also known as platform or stand-up magic, is performed for a medium to large audience. This type of performance is distinguished by the use of larger props and the use of assistants from within the audience.

These two women laugh out loud when they realise that their signed card has somehow appeared in Mike's mouth!

You should have seen the look on foreign secretary, William Hague's face during his 50th birthday party when Mike managed to put his mobile phone inside a balloon.

Mike got Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne to sign a card and surprised them both by making it appear inside a wallet in Ozzy's pocket.

To this day Mike has managed to take almost 3,000 watches without people realising including TV Presenter Gabby Logan.
