Member of the Inner Magic Circle (With Gold Star)

As a magic performer, Tj tends to shy away from the classic ‘rabbit in a hat’ style of magic, instead concentrating on a more interactive performance. Since 2001, Tj has been a full time magician for hire in the UK and enjoys entertaining his audiences with a mix of comedy and magic. In particular, Tj is one of the few who has mastered the art of a theatrical pickpocket, which is guaranteed to raise a laugh at your event. A Theatrical Pickpocket invites members of your audience onto the stage and then removes watches, wallets and other items from their pockets without their knowledge. It is fun for those watching and those participating and is the highlight of any evening.

Hiring a Magician

When it comes to booking a magician, it can be a daunting task to choose from so many advertised acts. There are some very talented magicians about (many I know and have worked with) but equally, there are some bad ones. You can rest assured that Tj is a professional and accredited Magic Entertainer in the UK.

What makes Tj stand out from other Magicians for hire?

Well, to understand this, you should book him and find out for yourself (hint hint)… but in all seriousness, Tj stands out due to the fact he has spent many years perfecting his act to such a high level, he is not only recognised by the Magic Circle, but is a member of the Inner Magic Circle, reserved for only the finest magic entertainers.
