The Magical Characters
Hello! My real name is Graham and I have four delightful characters especially developed for children.... "Mr Tricks the Magician", "Peghead Pete the Pirate", Mr Winkle the Wizard" and "Count Gray the Weird Vampire. These charming characters who fit in with almost any theme are, of course, all non-threatening to the younger children. Over 80% of the children's shows performed as these characters are either repeat bookings or from recommendations made by people who have seen the shows.
Graham's sense of humour is blended into all of his magic, whether it be for adults or children. The children laugh as he appears to be struggling with an uncontrollable piece of rope, which cannot be cut, or making a Magic Wand turn into a fishing rod or go straight.
|The children are amazed as a Silk Handkerchief vanishes in mid-air, only to re-appear tied between two others held, all along, by one of the youngsters. The appearance of a clowns nose out of an invisible purse gets all the children involved as one child tries to make it vanish only to find it keeps multiplying in the child's hand. The bigger children are not forgotten as they all get to count|
some giant cards which mysteriously travel from one child to the other. All join in with 'Fraidy Rabbit' the rabbit that keeps changing colour, where eventually it is discovered that things aren't quite what they seem.|
Baking a cake brings all sorts of laughter as, with the assistance of his little helper, Graham keeps putting the wrong things into it, only to finish up with a
giant................. Well it is a surprise but, it also illustrates a safety message.
The children are reminded of the Rubic Cube when they all get to play 'The Guessing Game' only to find it has vanished and found back on the table.
Metal passes through metal as the children hold the giant magic rings where eventually the child assistant finally releases the ring.|
Count Gray has all the children involved as
they search for his Ghouly friend. His other mindreading friend, "Black Crow",
just might turn up as well|
Graham performed his first magic trick at the age of seven (He says he wasted the first seven years of his life). Graham gained over ten years of his considerable experience when, as a teenager, he joined a concert party where he eventually finished up as Magician, Comedian, Choreographer, Producer and Director. He has appeared on all the major TV News services, as well as a number of TV specialty shows. In his Children's Magic Act he caters for everyone's interest with a mix of magic selected from around the globe mixing it all up into a blend of humour that no one can resist.
Graham has a number of large stage illusions which can be incorporated into that special event. Such as producing Father Christmas magically. When involved with a trade show he is able to incorporate the product or a message into the entertainment/attraction.
