Very experienced, highly skilled close up magician and fire breather.

Corin and Eric

A well seasoned performer, been in the business for over 30 years. What he doesn’t know about the entertainment business isn’t worth knowing. Does magic, including close-up, stage and children’s, balloon models, comperes, djs… plus much, much, more. He also keeps Corin in check too with a sharp nip from his beak every now and again. Corin isn’t too bad either!


The Brains of the operation, keeping everyone in line!

Mike Johnson
