Entertaining Magic Circle magician who performs unforgettable feats wrapped up in engaging and sophisticated performances both on stage and close-up.

Christopher Howell (USA/UK) is a Member of the Magic Circle.  He has performed throughout the UK and internationally for private and corporate, as well as high profile clients.  His performance style is friendly sophisticated. 

As a full-time professional magician he has appeared on such prestigious stages as The Barbican Hall and The Hackney Empire.



Christopher Howell's cabaret show is ideal as an after dinner show and it adds a mark of distinction to any event. 

The act is an entertaining and polished magic performance full of mind boggling magical feats.  His charming manner and baritone voice together command the attention of the audience, convincing them that in reality, anything is possible.  Often the cabaret show is presented as a 'finale show' to Christopher's close-up magic that was experienced during the reception earlier in the evening.  The act lasts about 30 minutes.


Christopher also performs entertaining and skillful close-up magic at receptions or around tables as he mixes with the audience, using a variety of everyday objects to achieve miracles inches from the eyes of the spectators. 

At reception it can serve as a great ice-breaker to help kick things off.  At dinner it can be an engaging way to keep up the buzz between courses. 

Performance length is flexible, usually up to about 2 hours, depending on your event and the number of guests.

"I'd say he has to be seen to be believed, but I still can't believe what I've seen!"

-A. Quayle, Artistic Director, Box of Tricks Theatre Company - Close-up Magic

'I recently booked Christopher to perform his close up magic at our business party and everyone was blown away.  We've had magicians before but Christopher was a cut above, both in the quality and execution of his tricks as well as the rapport that he built with the guests.  He got everyone involved in what he was doing but without ever being overbearing.  Everyone was suitably impressed and I would not hesitate to book him again.' 

- E. Stanbury

'Development Executive for The Santon Group' - Close-up Magic
