At Rosie's Christening Frankie was the Star...

As a magician and entertainer I'm finding that I'm getting booked to entertain at far more christenings and naming ceremonies than ever before. Christenings are events where lots of families get together, and with families there are always children. It's a long day for the little ones so why not give them some entertainment to keep them happy. And you could also add some close-up magic—card tricks, mind-reading etc—for the adults as well.

Yesterday, at the Coleshill Hotel in Birmingham, I was booked by Mr and Mrs Goulding to perform my magic and entertainment for Rosie's christening - and this was the 2nd christening I've entertained at for the Goulding's. The last one, just over a year ago, was for little Frankie, Rosie's brother.

At just 18 months, Rosie was too young to join in with all the dancing, games and magic (I did make her a special monkey in a banana tree which she loved - I think) but her older brother was willing and ready to take her place. And, what a star Frankie was. He gave some hilarious comments that made everyone roar with laughter. When I asked him what the capital of England was he answered "Coleshill". And during the magic show he told me he was 3 years old and married - very funny. Thanks to Frankie, and all the children, Mr and Mrs Goulding and everyone who watched and joined in with the fun - what a fab time we had.



It was lovely to see you all again... 

...hope its not too long until the next time

Finlay's Party with Andy's Magic - Magician & Entertainer

Finlay's party was held at the Priorslee Community Centre, Priorslee near Telford — a venue that I'd never entertained at before, and I can tell you, it's a great venue, too. Not too big but not too small either, clean, tidy, with good facilities and even a little playgroup just outside.

Finlay and his friends joined in with all aspects of the party and Finlay was great as a magicians assistant. We had loads of fun and the kids all went hope with a balloon animal each and smiles on their faces.

Thanks for booking with Andy's Magic...

...Happy 3rd Birthday Finlay

Rare Early Chuckle Brothers Appearance - when there were 4 of them?

In the video below you'll see some rare and very early footage of The Chuckle Brothers. But wait a minute there's four of them! So who are the other two fella's? Well it's Jimmy and Brian Patton, better known as The Patton Brothers, who are real life elder brothers of Paul and Barry - The Chuckle Brothers (you'll probably recognize them because they've appeared many times on  BBC's Chucklevision and with the Chuckle Brothers on tour).

So, in this video we find all four brothers performing together under the name of "The Chuckle Brothers" and here (in 1980) they were appearing on an episode of the popular quiz / game show 3-2-1, which was hosted by the late Ted Rogers. It's a funny clip, and shows how good the four brothers are with their slapstick and visual comedy.



 Good weren't they - I wonder why they split up and went on as two double acts?

Amazing Magic from Moritz Mueller - Mo-Fly

Most children love watching magic. Most learn the odd, easy, self-working magic trick and perform it to their friends and family. But not many can perform coin manipulations and sleight of hand so brilliantly as the young German lad in the video below.

His name is Moritz Mueller and he is truly a talented young man and a natural born magician. In this video he gracefully and effortlessly makes silver coins appear and vanish at his finger-tips. It really is a breath-taking performance. He calls this routine Mo-Fly and it really is a delight to watch... Enjoy 


Moritz Mueller - a big magical name of the future, I'm sure you agree...

Dai Vernon - The Spirit of Magic


Dai Vernon - The Professor
Dai Vernon's (real name David Frederick Wingfield Verner) contributions to magic are unparalleled to this day, and he was, and still is, known as the magician's magician.

This fascinating documentary covering his life and work is a wonderful insight into the life of one of the greatest magicians whoever lived and became known as simply...  "The Professor".

This video also features clips and contributions from from David Verner (Dai's Son), Max Maven, Jay Marshall, Harry Lorraine, John Carney, Ricky Jay, and many others too. It really is worth a watch...

The Magic of Doug Henning

Doug Henning appeared regularly on television in his own annual TV specials "Doug Henning's World of Magic"- the first of which featured Doug performing Harry Houdini's Water Torture Escape and was hosted by Bill Crosby.  He made guest appearance on many shows including Tonight with Johnny Carson and The Muppets. He also made illusions for pop group, Earth, Wind and Fire and two for "King of Pop", Michael Jackson. He was, without doubt, the biggest magical star of the day but tragically his career and life were cut short. In early 2000 he was diagnosed with liver cancer... five months later he died. 

Doug Henning's legacy lives on with the magic he presented, shared, created and wrote about. Among the magic fraternity he is one magician that will never be forgotten.

Below is a wonderful five-minute clip, which was part of his Broadway show, and shows his skill as a close-up magician. Here you will see him perform magic with a Rubik's Cube, Cups and Balls and he even manages to make his feet disappear - the best part for me, very clever :)


R.I.P Doug Henning...

Andy's Magic Performs at Central Park...

Central Park Nursery, Telford
Over the years I've performed in such places as Hollywood, Broadway and today it was Central Park.

Ok, I'll come clean, I haven't been jetting around the United States, it was Hollywood in Birmingham, Broadway in the Cotswold's and today's gig wasn't Central Park in New York but Telford. But it was a brilliant party. 

Me, Nursery Owner, Marie, Staff and Children
I was booked to entertain a 60 strong crowd of children at the Central Park Nursery, in Central Park, Telford, to celebrate the Nursery's 19th Birthday. The children were so excited as they waited for everyone to arrive and for me to start. And when I did start they were fantastically enthusiastic and joined in with the games, loved winning the prizes, laughed their heads off during the magic show and loved collecting their balloon animals at the end.



This was a first visit for me to the nursery but I hope it won't be the last... It really was super.

Andy's Magic at Walnut Cottage Nursery

Today's show was over at Walnut Cottage Nursery in Shrawley near Worcester. The nursery have become regular customers of mine over the last few years and it's always a pleasure to visit them. On this particular visit I was accompanied by my youngest lad William. He helped me set-up and pack away, which was a great help. As you can see from the photo he's starting to get interested in magic and was already to perform as William the Wizard.

The show it's self was great. The kids loved the games at the beginning, and couldn't stop laughing during the show. At the end, and because they'd been so good, I decided to reward them with a balloon animal each. 

All in all, a smashing day of magic at Walnut Cottage Nursery in Shrawley near Worcester.
