Peter offers Close-up magic in a number of different formats:
- Mix & Mingle. For drinks receptions and finger buffets.
- Table Magic. Performed at the table in between courses during dinner.
- Beat the Cheat. For drinks receptions or after dinner this is a static performance of cons scams and hustles, peppered with stories of real life crooks.
- Close-up show. The very best closeup magic performed in a more formal setting.
If you need after dinner entertainment then Peter's Cabaret Show is ideal for most sizes of audience. It is funny and interactive with moments of genuine amazement.
Shows can last from 20 to 40 minutes and can be tailored to suit your requirements.
Peter is not a "comedy magician", but a World Class Magician with the delivery of a stand-up comedian.
