Coins fall UPWARDS, sponge rabbits have a mind of their own and borrowed notes change in value!The highlight of the show is Martin’s signature routine, involving a pen, a note…and a LEMON!
If gasps, smiles & laughter sound appealing for your next event, Martin John is the perfect choice. A world class group and table hopping act for all corporate, weddings and private events with added charisma and finesse.
Although interested since a young child, it wasn’t until the age of 18 that Martin began learning the art of ‘Close-up Magic’. At the age of 21, Martin flew to Spain attempting to make a living in Magic, performing his close-up act in bars for tips. After two months of performing seven nights per week, he had been noticed by the management of the largest variety show venue in Spain, the Benidorm Palace. He then became the resident magician for five years performing close-up magic on spotlight, table to table in front of audiences of over 1000 nightly. Recognising his talent, the Benidorm Palace offered him a spot on the stage, which he accepted by developing and performing a double-act dove and parrot magic act, followed by making a 16 metre long Lear Jet Aeroplane magically appear on the stage, now known as the World’s largest stage appearance. Gaining a large amount of experience in visual stage magic, Martin decided it was time to develop two full shows coupling visual magic with comedy, which proved a huge success. At the age of 25 he was approached by various cruise lines, where he has been baffling and bringing laughter to audiences for the last 5 years!

Audience Participation with Martin John Magician !
Audience participation plays a massive part in Martin’s shows. Having members of the audience joining in with routines always adds a huge impact to any show. A spectators mind is attempted to be read…ridiculously! Finding a lady’s selected card doesn’t quite go to plan and an audience member is made into an ‘Instant Magician!’ getting the chance to perform in front of the entire audience…particularly good for the CEO of a company, a celebrity or the organiser of the event
