Many people argue that the most magical moments happen one on one with a performer. When you're looking for magic in a more intimate environment such as a cocktail party, hospitality suite, trade show or dinner this is the style of magic you're seeking.
Close up magic takes place within inches of the audience, or in their hands, making it, arguably, the most powerful type of magic. Typically done with cards, coins, rubber bands and other ordinary objects this is a highly mobile act that can run from 2 minutes to 30 minutes. Generally C.J. is booked for a 2 or 3 hour block of time during a dinner or occasionally at a trade show.
C.J.'s close up skills go far beyond that of knowing a couple of card tricks. He blends his sense of humor, keen timing, years of experience entertaining audience, and a genuine love of people and natural charm to create a memorable experience of magic for the audience. They'll laugh as they are amazed beyond belief with close up miracles of magic that takes place right in their hands.
One thing is for sure, no one will confuse the effects performed by C.J. with those done by "Uncle Fred" at the family reunion. C.J. carefully selects material that is both astonishing and entertaining, but most importantly, he chooses material that is fun and in character with his fun loving spirit. Your guests will have FUN and be amazed.
Close up is an excellent (and inexpensive) addition to any evening stage magic show or hypnosis show and is a great way to let people know what to expect later in the evening.
