IMPORTANT: Due to the Corona-Pandemic and its current restrictions in Germany and elsewhere, I’m currently offering online magic shows using a choice of Zoom, Microsoft Meetings or Skype. For more information, please see HERE
A close-up show is a performance with smaller objects performed at a table, either standing or seated, for everyone at the same time. This is popular at smaller family reunions as pictured above or at conferences or open days, where the magician has a set location and time slots spread throughout the day.
Typical props are banknotes, cards, balls, cups, elastic bands, safety pins, mobile phones and pencils. The audience usually stands and/or sits around a table and can follow everything at very close quarters, hence the name 😉 People are all the more astonished when the magic happens ‘right under their noses’
