Although interested since a young child, it wasn’t until the age of 18 that Martin began learning the art of ‘Close-up Magic’. At the age of 21, Martin flew to Spain to attempt to make a living in Magic, performing his Close-up Magic act in bars simply for tips.
After two months performing seven nights per week, he had been noticed by the management of the largest variety show venue in Spain, The Benidorm Palace. It was here that he became the resident magician for five years performing Close-up Magic on spotlight, table to table in front of audiences of over 1000 nightly. Recognising his talent, the Benidorm Palace offered him a spot on the stage, which he accepted by developing and performing a double-act dove and parrot magic act, followed by making a 16 metre long Lear Jet Aeroplane magically appear on the stage, now known as the World’s largest stage appearance.
Gaining a large amount of experience in visual stage magic, Martin decided it was time to develop two full shows coupling visual magic with comedy, which proved a huge success. At the age of 25 he was approached by various cruise lines, where he baffled and brought laughter to audiences for over 5 years.
Now based just south of London, aged 40, Martin performs his Close-up & Comedy Stage Magic at corporate events, weddings and private parties in London, throughout the UK & worldwide on request.
