I was never going to grow up to be a fireman or a footballer. At the age of five, I was organising our family’s annual Christmas talent show. My three siblings didn’t stand a chance. I hosted, performed… and somehow (ahem!) always managed to win. The stage was set for my career in entertainment.
I qualified as a member of the world-famous Magic Circle – awarded the Silver Star, don’t you know – and spent 20 years working as a magician at private parties and corporate events. I then moved into cabaret, adding mind-reading and stand-up comedy to my box of tricks.
And then I had a lightbulb moment. During my years of entertaining, I’d seen first-hand how important the host was to an event – and how a host could literally make or break an event. What about if I took my comedy, magic and mind-reading and I became the host? I could be the entertaining, funny, go-to host who always made events memorable – and for all the right reasons. And so Your Magical Host was born.
Since then I’ve taken my unique blend of hosting along with my after-dinner entertainment around the world. I’ve entertained everyone from blue chip companies and celebrities to royalty (thank you, ma’am) and taken to the stage for hundreds of events including awards ceremonies, charity fundraisers, corporate celebrations and gala dinners.
Host, comic, magician and mind-reader – why have one when you can have all four? I hope to amuse, astound and entertain you soon.
