About John

John started in magic as a young boy with the gift of a magic set from his Aunty, on his eighth birthday. Later David Nixon sets arrived at Christmas, and from that point on he was hooked on entertaining - even at that young age!

From that early age, he had no idea that magic would then start to take over his life. When sixteen, he was booked by an entertainment agency in Bath to undertake engagements in the South West, entertaining with his children's party act.

A few years later he also undertook adult cabaret shows with his comedy magic act, and performed in hotels, clubs and holiday centres.

In 1978, and again in 1980, he was runner-up out of several hundred acts from all over the country in the National Finals of the Pontin's Talent Competition, held in Blackpool, performing his comedy act to some 2000 people.

John has a wealth of experience in entertaining all ages, under all conditions and for all types of venues. He has performed thousands of shows all over the West Country with his comedy magic for children and adults.

Be assured that your event will be a great success. Many of John's clients have rebooked him for several years, involving a change of programme for these engagements.
