Strolling Close Up Magic
Close-up magic happens right under your nose. Truly some of the most stunning, visual and mind-bending magic you can imagine! Watkins’ unique and original close-up magic transforms ordinary cocktail receptions, hospitality suites, banquets, corporate events and other gatherings into absolutely unforgettable events.
Watkins uses audience participation, comedy, mentalism, and mind-boggling magic to get your event moving with strolling performances. Using cards, rings, borrowed objects, rubber bands, and other every day objects, Watkins works his way through the event, performing intimate magic for small groups and individuals. Dollar bills float or end up stuffed inside oranges, signed cards switch places or end up in someone’s wallet, cell phones penetrate balloons, dollar bills magically turn into hundreds…and a great deal more! As Watkins moves from group to group, everyone gets their own five to ten minute magic show!
“CARD TRICKS SO ASTONISHING YOU WON’T WANT TO KNOW HOW THEY’RE DONE!”

This kind of close-up sleight of hand magic can also be performed in a more formal setting where the audience is seated and watching the performance. Intended for audiences of 5-50, close-up magic shows are perfect for small private events, dinner parties, and smaller corporate events. Additionally, this kind of show is ideal for sales meetings and other presentations where you may want to revitalize and motivate your team through custom-scripted shows that feature your corporate message.
“Watkins’ MASTERY of sleight of hand is evident through out.”
–MUM ( The magazine of the Society of American Magicians)
