Close Up Magician.

Full Biography

* Modern, close-up magician
* Member of London's official Magic Circle
* Wows audiences whilst blending in and not stealing the limelight

Jordan James is a modern, close-up magician and a member of London's official Magic Circle who amaze audiences all over the world.

Jordan prides himself on his quality and reliability, two of the most important traits in this industry. You may find other magicians have taken several bookings for one day meaning they will be rushing around and not giving your day the care and attention it deserves. Jordan won't do that, he will ensure there is enough time before and after your event to accommodate any changes and give you the best performance he can.

Almost 80% of Jordan's work is repeat business and word of mouth recommendations, so if you hire Jordan you'll be safe in the knowledge that you are getting an experienced magician who offers a reliable service of a very high quality.

Jordan has performed for many large companies over the last 10 years, including Tesco, Dixons, Cooperative Motor Group, DFS, The Royal Armouries, Doncaster Rovers, Inditherm PLC, and many, many more...

Be assured that when you hire Jordan O’Grady, you are getting a reliable, quality entertainer who thrives for perfection. He is a member of London’s official Magic Circle. He is also a member of equity so he is fully public liability insured.


So you're getting married and you're planning your wedding. You want something that will make your big day different, special and memorable for you and your guests.

Jordan can perform a close-up magic show for small groups, either sitting or standing. He has a modern "mix and mingle" style of performance, so he can blend into any part of your day whether it be breakfast entertainment, drinks reception or evening reception, the guests will be amazed by his sleight of hand magic. 

Jordan believes when performing magic at an event, you should blend in amongst the guests rather than take any of the limelight or attention from the bride and groom on their day, but at the same time keep guests entertained. His act caters for all ages, 1-100. And even Aunty Anne who is a little hard of hearing can join in as a lot of the magic is very visual!

There are a few different times throughout the day that you may wish to consider some entertainment. Here are some below for you to take a look at....

The Photo Period?
On arrival at the venue, you will of course be wanting to take some gorgeous wedding photos. You'll be whizzed away, and as this can take some time, your guests are left to hang around and wait.

So why not entertain them with some magic? This is a popular time for magic, it's a great ice breaker and puts everyone in great spirits. Jordan will mix and mingle with your guests, blending in and keeping them thoroughly entertained. Approx 1-2 hours.

The Wedding Breakfast?
This is the most popular choice at weddings. Jordan walks around the tables during the meal and perform a close-up show for everyone seated, usually 10-15 minutes. He won't interrupt the meal, as he works in-between courses and the performance can be lengthened or shortened to suit your individual needs. Approx 2 hours.

The Evening Reception?
So everything has been sorted, you've got your DJ, the buffet has been arranged and now you're looking for something to wow the crowds and add a special touch. The best time to entertain evening guests is in the early evening before the disco kicks into full swing. The music isn't too loud and guests will be able to hear Jordan.
Approx 2 hours.


Jordan is fantastic at entertaining any number of children you may have at your event. He's a fantastic balloon modeller! During the speeches it may be a good time for Jordan to make some balloon models in a separate area of the venue. This will keep the room nice and quiet for the all important speeches.

Private Parties
A close up magician is a fantastic idea for a private party, christening, house party, birthday party, black tie balls, proms or any other special event you are planning.

Jordan will mix and mingle with all your guests entertaining them and leaving them in sheer amazement!

Jordan will tailor each and every performance to your needs. Guests can be seated at the dinner table, or standing during a drinks reception and he will walk round and perform his jaw dropping close up magic routine.
