Grown Up Magic

A Simple And Cost Effective Way Of Making Your Party The Outstanding Success You Wish It To Be…..

Dear Party Arranger,

Let me make a few guesses, as to what you have planned, (or thinking of) so far…

Your guests arrive, and for a time are standing around with a drink in one hand and a peanut in the other…

Right so far?

If not call me on Freephone 0800-0188118 (best from a landline) or 01737-350586 (best from a mobile) and tell me how you plan to start your party. I am truly interested because, you may have a solution to the challenge of what to do with guests at this early stage of your party that I have not met before, so do please call.

For more specialist help for those running a charity event. 

Clive Looks The Part…

When you are considering a wedding reception party Specialist Wedding Help

It might, however, be that your party is starting off on the wrong foot and perhaps I can help you steer clear of a stressful situation or one you may wish to avoid.

After a period of time, your guests are invited to enjoy some food which you have organised. Is it a sit-down silver service meal, a buffet, or a finger buffet?

After your meal, you may have some speeches, music, and dancing or a specialty act (or nothing).

How am I doing, with my guesses?

Chances are I am doing all right because this is a tried, tested and trusted formula which works well. Unless you have loads of experience in putting on parties, this is the party plan I suggest you follow.

However, there are a number of things you can do that can break the mould, make your party different, special, and most of all memorable for all the guests who are lucky enough to receive an invitation.

Here’s How You  Can Use Clive’s Magic To Entertain Your Guests…

Reception Magic: often called, ‘Mix ‘n Mingle’, helps break the ice. Clive performs for small groups, with his high quality stunning magical effects that happen in your guest’s hands, under their noses, and right before their eyes.

I Love Giving Them That True Magical Moment

Cards that do miraculous things change from one card to another IN YOUR HANDS without him touching it, it has to be seen to be believed. Even then you will doubt your own eyes. His coins move from one place to another in an unfathomable fashion. He’ll read your mind and reveal what you are thinking – nicely.

Here’s a short video of Clive performing at the Surrey Close Up Magic Competition

Six Times Winner Creating Some Magic and Fun

However, that is not your overriding memory of your party. What everyone remembers is the fun and laughter Clive generates, his reading of his audience, and his quick wit. The banter with his audience and the string of one-liners never seem to stop.

Dear Clive,
Thanks very much for so excellently entertaining us at our dinner last Tuesday. The evening went exceptionally well, and I have had numerous comments that its relaxed ambience was most definitely aided by your unbelievable abilities. You helped create a marvellous atmosphere with just a right amount of humour – and you certainly read your audience well!

Fun, fun and more fun, fun all the way, coupled with the strongest magic you’ve ever seen – guaranteed.

These Two Gentleman Explain What Happened To Them…

You will hear shrieks of amazement, laughter, rounds of applause, and to be honest some groans at some of the jokes.

These audible responses often turn heads and when Clive sees people in adjoining groups looking, he invites them to join in what he is doing, and when he leaves a group, he leaves them talking about what they have just seen.

Their conversation moves on from there and they meet new people, exchange interests, and even make new friends.

Table Magic: Clive moves from table to table with a completely different set of material. This kind of magic is very much eat and watch at the same time. There is no need to put your knife and fork down to take part or watch.

The same very strong magic, the same wicked sense of humour, and he leaves the same impression when he has to leave and move on. Your guests want him to stay and do more.

After Dinner: Many clients like a short show after dinner perhaps during coffee. Clive’s cabaret-style show is packed full of comedy. Tell Clive how long you want from 10 to 45 minutes and then relax in the safe knowledge that you are in for a laughing session that will make your tummy ache.

See Clive push a knife through the nicest looking jacket in the room. Watch the owner’s face as Clive rips the lining out and then watch in astonishment as he returns the jacket to its former pristine condition and then stand by for the big laugh at the end – which I am going to keep secrets here – followed by a kicker afterthought which is hysterical.

Just one routine of many Clive can build into your show.

You could use this show to fill time if your band wishes to take a break during the evening.

During the Dancing:   As you know not everyone likes to dance. In fact, only a very small minority of people will stay on the dance floor the whole evening. Most people dance to some songs and not to others and a significant number of people don’t dance at all.

Clive calls this last group the “Sick, Lame and Lazy”. These are the reason people don’t dance, but none-the-less they are important guests and you want them to feel part of the party and not left out.

Why This Client Booked Clive Regularly For Thirteen Years… 

So here is an idea for you…

Have Clive entertain them for you. This type of entertainment is very low key and informal. It WILL NOT compete with the dancing, it just compliments it.

The Sick, Lame, and Lazy may congregate in the bar, they may be outside or just sitting at their table, wherever they are that’s where you will find Clive. He is telling them jokes, showing them how they could be cheated at cards or just chatting with them about anything THEY wish to talk about.

Best of all this part of your party is often FREE of charge – not always but often. If your party is in the evening then ask how you can have Clive look after your Sick, Lame, and Lazy for free.

People often ask “What Clive Does” and the answer is basically this…He chooses from his vast repertoire the material that is right for your party and your guests. One size does not fit all. Your input is important but we are here to ask questions, make suggestions and take your instructions.

By doing this you are guaranteed to have the party you want, not the one that suits your magician.

The Most Famous Guarantee In The World of Magic …

Clive is a very experienced magical entertainer who is a Member of The World Famous Magic Circle, in fact, he is a Member of The Inner Magic Circle with Gold Star and six-time Surrey Close Up Magic champion at least three more wins than any other magician. Clive is proud to offer you the most famous guarantee in the world of magic…

Here it is for you…

If for any reason whatsoever, or even no reason at all, you do not agree Clive is the most entertaining magician you have ever seen, that his magic is powerful, mind-blowing and astonishing…that he is fun to be with and the real ‘life and soul of your party’. That the feedback you get from your guests is both numerous and very positive, just as you would expect from a magician who holds The Magic Circle’s highest degree obtainable by examination. That his persona with everyone is fun, positive and always in control… that the advice you receive from his office is both good and helpful, but not overpowering and at the end of the day you are ‘off the scale pleased’ you booked him, then simply say so at the end of your party and Clive will immediately tear up your invoice, cancel his bill and you will owe nothing.

In short, Clive walks the talk, you join his long list of happy customers or you will not pay a penny for Clive’s services at your party.

On this fully guaranteed basis, I urge you to call Clive’s office right now before the date you want is booked by someone else.

The date you think about today and book tomorrow is the date someone else thought about yesterday and is booking today!
