Close-Up Roving Magic:

PERFECT FOR COCKTAIL FUNCTIONS AND HOUSE PARTIES.

This is the type of magic which Robbie is most often hired to perform. It’s a flexible style of magic, which caters perfectly to cocktail functions, champagne receptions, house parties, and any event where people are predominantly standing up. In short, Robbie will mix and mingle with the guests, performing intimate and engaging close-up magic, from one group to the next

The magic is visually strong, and hits people hard, with much of it being performed in the hands of the people watching. Robbie works largely from his pockets, performing with playing cards, coins, and ropes, as well as using items borrowed from the guests, such as rings and mobile phones. See him turn fire into ice in his bare hands, pluck a rose from a flame, or make a thought of card appear inside of a sealed lime.

It’s a great entertainment solution to use as an ice breaker, and to create a general buzz and talking point within your event.

Parlour Magic:

PERFECT FOR EVENTS WITH 40 OR LESS GUESTS, EG: A DINNER PARTY OR A HENS NIGHT.

For small groups of around 40 people or less, Robbie recommends a more formal show for everybody at the same time, typically lasting for around 45 minutes, depending on the needs of the client. Like the close-up roving option, parlour shows offer magic which has impact, while also allowing for a wider variety of effects, more theatricality, and greater participation from the audience. Robbie provides his own speaker system, allowing him to incorporate music as well as ensuring everyone can clearly hear him. Every show includes a bottle of dessert wine, which is incorporated into the act, and offered as a complimentary give-away.

Depending on the type of event and the number of guests, Robbie will sometimes combine close-up roving magic with a parlour or stage show at the end. This is an excellent way of giving your guests the best of both options, and ending the entertainment with a bigger bang!

Stage Magic:

PERFECT FOR LARGER MORE FORMAL EVENTS, WHERE YOU REALLY WANT TO IMPRESS!

Robbie regularly performs for audiences of 100 people or more, and would be happy to put together a 10-40 minute stage show for your next event. His stage magic is smart, direct, witty, and at times, a little bizzare. His original stage antics have been recognised by his peers, when in 2016 and 2012 the West Australian Society of Magicians twice awarded him ‘Most Creative’ following a stage competition. A regular performer in Perth’s Fringe World festival, in 2015 he co-starred in a full-length original stage show (entitled ‘Beyond Belief’), which was nominated for the ‘Best of Cabaret’ award.

His stage magic does not rely upon expensive glittery boxes, sequinned assistants, and elaborate stage rigging and lighting requirements. Instead, it’s simple and stripped back, allowing for great entertainment at a relatively lower cost! Clients have included the Royal Australian College of Surgeons, Fuji Xerox, Crown Casinos, RTG Mining, Reece Plumbing, the Motor Cycle Racing Club of WA, and the West Australian Mechanical Services.
