At Headliner, we don't need to say the magic words in order to amaze the senses! But if you're waiting for it...Abracadabra! We've magically created the perfect guide on hiring a magician. This guide will explain all the ins-and-outs of booking a Magician and the difference between the different types. We'll explain the differences between cabaret magicians and mind-readers, close-up magicians and comedy magicians, street magicians and stage. You'll learn what to expect when hiring a magician, as well as how to pick the right one for your event.
The most popular types of magic performed by Magicians for private events are:
Close-up magic: Looking for walkabout entertainment for your guests? Look no further than close-up magicians. These artists are incredibly good with their hands and require the minimum amounts of set-up for maximum effect. These magicians will move from table to table delighting your guests with wonderful sleight-of-hand. If you are planning on having a drinks reception for your guests, a close-up magician might be the perfect answer. They can entertain between 20-125 people over a two hour period. It's a fantastic way to get conversations going and works as a perfect ice breaker.
Sleight-of-hand magicians: While close-up magicians do sleight-of-hand, sleight-of-hand magicians specialise in tricks with everyday objects. Whether it's coins, cards, bills or watches, sleight-of-hand magicians will have some trick rolled up their sleeves. Sometimes these acts even include pickpocketing.
Mind readers and Mentalists: These magicians appear to be able to read audience members minds, often 'predicting' the outcome of random events. They achieve this by studying psychological habits and applying techniques and auto-suggestion.
Comedy-magicians: The funniest of the magicians, comedy-magicians combine the art of magic with stand-up comedy! Both funny and mesmerizing.
Stage show magicians: Popularised by Penn and Teller, this kind of magic is often done on a massive stage. These magic shows dream big, often being accompanied by large scale production elements and massive audiences. One can expect glorious stage lights, props, music, and glamorous assistants. With these kinds of performances once can expect daring escapes, levitation or transformation attempts, vanishing acts and even producing something from nothing.
Street magic: Often some of the most televised magic, (think David Blaine and Derren Brown episode), street magicians work with the general public/passersby. They often perform tricks that require some form of audience participation.
