The IBM is the largest world-wide organisation for magicians Mike performs high-impact, modern, close up magic with a whole range of resources including banknotes, coins, ropes, borrowed finger rings, balls, cards and fire (safely! Very cool!). He can also entertain with a striking stand up magic act if required. Mike's act is fast paced, full of good humour, and packed with both strongly magical moments, and surprise. It is suitable for all the family and is in no way risqué. Mike will listen to your requirements and suggestions, and tailor his act to suit your needs. He will advise you on performance time options for the number of guests you have. You may want your guests to be entertained during the drinks' reception, throughout the meal (whilst guests are waiting for their next course, NOT while they are eating!) or after the meal when extra guests may be arriving, and before a live band or disco. Mike is usually booked for a combination from this list. YOU choose the option which best matches up with your needs, and your budget. Prices: 2 hours £275, 3 hours £375. Quotations for longer periods available! Mike has been booked for up to 6 hours!!
