Martin’s creativity and imagination will add a freshness to your special event, as he has the rare ability to build/adapt Props, magic routines, and skills for your event. Martin’s show features unique, seemingly dangerous, and visually engaging stage props, perplexing inventions, and unique skills and includes an attempt to break not one, but two World Records!
A true innovator, Martin has continued working diligently during the Covid lock-down to impressively further develop his amazing double-handed whip routine and is presently refining a routine juggling three whips whilst also cracking them simultaneously.
Cowboy-style rope spinning, sword-swallowing, amazing yoyo tricks, magic with a refreshing twist, top-spinning, optical illusions and a rare gyroscope that he can safely propel among the audience.
All these skills are performed in his stand-up routine, which is ingenious and contemporary, yet clean and entirely appropriate. This is an act that must be seen to be believed! With rare skills and astonishing science, Martin takes comedy to an astronomical sphere that will leave your audience gobsmacked, baffled, amazed, intrigued and above all, talking about it for years.
Furthermore, there will be scope for your guests to become involved with the show, as Martin likes nothing more than audience participation, and would enthusiastically include any of your fun-loving guests as an assistant (prop) to further embellish his unique routines. This audience participation is sure to add another custom-made and most memorable experience to your next corporate function, with laughs to be had by all.
“Martin joined us at our company conference dinner in June. He was a highly engaging presenter and interacted with the audience brilliantly. His combination of humour, magic and physical skills was enjoyed by everybody and I would highly recommend Martin as a performer. Thanks”

“This is just a short note to thank you for the amazing performance you displayed in front of our clients. It was vital to me that this was “the perfect day”, as the 100 or so people who we invited were extremely important to our business. This is why I attended a previous function that you did, to make sure you were the right person for the job!
I have attended hundreds of functions in my forty years of real estate, and I must admit that no one has ever impressed both me and our whole audience like you did. I had many texts and emails about how much attendees liked your show. One lady said “that Martin just made me feel so happy” … what else can you do?
Firstly, you are so easy to get along with and that is probably because you are very confident of the quality of your work. I have seen comedians, magicians and other talented people who seem to be very capable with a bagful of implements. However, I never thought I would meet someone who excelled in all three, as you did.
Your attention to detail and professionalism was incredible but then again, anyone who was an Olympian as you were, definitely knows how to commit to the job at hand. It was entertaining when a couple of people in the audience had a question for you in the middle of your performance, and your answers to them were so quick and witty; I was actually hoping others joined in! Martin, I will definitely be using you again.”
