Hi Andy. Just a quick note to say a HUGE thank you for your contribution to Wilf's birthday party last week.  From the minute you arrived you provided and fun and relaxing atmosphere and we were appreciated by children and adults alike. Thank you so much. Many thanks, Lucy

Dear Andy. I just wanted to get in touch to say thank you again for appearing at Violet's party on the 7th. She had a fantastic time and lots of parents have told me that their children really enjoyed themselves. Violet has been talking about her party non-stop for a week now and you were a big part of creating that special memory for her. Every time I looked at her at the party she was laughing. I was particularly impressed with how you managed such a large age range of children too! Anyway, I have already recommended you to others and will continue to do so. Kind regards, Claire

Hi Andy. I know it's a week on but I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for making Charlie's birthday party so special. It was his first ever birthday party (in fact we have never had a birthday party for either boy before!) and he was so happy to have seen you. Both the boys talked about you non stop afterwards saying you were a 'very funny, smart man' and I really felt you delivered over and above what I had hoped for. One of the best childrens entertainers London. A friend has already asked for your details which I have passed on. Hope to be at one of your parties again soon!! Stella

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for yesterday. It was brilliant! The children and adults all loved it. So impressed by your endless energy, patience and silliness and for incorporating the dinosaur theme. Thank you for making it a great day for everyone, we would definitely recommend you to anyone. Trish

Thanks so much for the wonderful entertainment and magic you brought to Sid's party. One little girl was still laughing about the silly hats as she was going to bed apparently. All of the mums who saw you asked for your details so I'll pass them on. It was great to see the kids having such a wonderful time and laughing so much - all very exceptional - you set the gold standard! Sorry I didn't get chance to say bye and thank you properly in person. Sid says "thank you, you are funny! I liked your magic tricks." - he is less gushy than his mum! Thanks again, take care and all good wishes, Jo

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the girls party on Sunday. They had a fantastic time and everyone thought you were brilliant. I was convinced one of the little boys was going to wet himself because he was laughing so much! I would love to have you again when Jess and Anna are old enough and I will definitely spread the word and recommend you to friends. Thanks again, Eileen

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for a brilliant party. Isaac had so much fun and thoroughly enjoyed himself.  Thank you for his massive diplodocus balloon!!  I have no reservation in recommending you to any of my friends. Thanks again. Best wishes, Kishani

Just to say thank you very much for a great show, Matthew and we could not be more happy. Everyone loved the show, every single child and parent - will definitely let everyone know we know an excellent magician!! Thank you again, Adrianna
Hi Andy. Thank you so much for yesterday. Samuel had an amazing time and I've had messages from other parents saying the same - you managed to get onside three notoriously party shy kids (Samuel included), which was fantastic to see. We both needed a doze after all the excitement yesterday - I don't know how you do it! My husband declared your rates a bargain, too, for all that you covered. My only regret is I didn't get to watch the whole show as I was genuinely amazed by the sleight-of-hand tricks I saw - as were all the adults. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend - and I expect we may be in touch again! Very best wishes, Kirsty

I have been meaning to e-mail you all week but it ended up being very hectic as it was Zach’s actual birthday on Thursday!  Just wanted to say thank you again for another fantastic party. Zach had such a good time and has talking about it ever since (he has even been asking us to make coins disappear and come back bigger)!  He thoroughly enjoyed the whole party and it was so lovely to see him completely immersed in it all and loving every moment of it.  You were also fantastic at keeping so many children entertained and under control for the whole party - thank you so much! I have had a number of parents also commenting on what a great party it was and if I could give them your contact details so hopefully you might be asked to a few more parties. Thanks again. Best wishes, Sarah


Andy's magic show is filled with fantastic, funny, fast-paced routines that will make his audience laugh out loud from start to finish and they will wow at the magic too. His shows have tons of visual comedy, he gets helpers up at every opportunity to help him (though he never forces them to if they are shy) and the whole audience is invited to help him in a variety of fun creative ways. He has different magic shows for all kinds of audiences and ages; his magic show for young children is jolly and colourful, his magic for older children is edgy and daring, and he has magic that appeals to all ages. This is a show with brilliant new ideas and impressive magic routines. You can find out more about the magic that Andy performs here.

Andy entertains with a short but rather splendid show with his magic mice, Bobbin the Raccoon and Stinky Bird. Remember, never feed Stinky Bird cheese or it may give him a funny tummy and he might start laying eggs everywhere!


Andy can make the most-popular asked for animals, and also dinosaurs, dragons, flowers, magic wands, swords, aliens and loads of silly hats too.


For parties he hosts exciting party games and dancing, close-up magic for children of all ages and circus skills as well.
