As Eugene Burger once said ” Close up magic is a form without a venue”, referring to a lack of venues (other than cocktail receptions and restaurants table hopping, maybe parties) for the full charm and artistry of formal close up magic to be experienced by the audience. And today i made one up.
As one growing up watching L and L magic tapes and watching performances at the magic castle from a faraway land, it always made me envious of the idea of a close up show, which is almost hardly seen here. Performing in America opened my eyes to the world of dinner theatres and i decided to bring this back to Singapore.
First Edition of an Evening of Magic collaboration with Cafe Football Singapore. Show is named “Magic After Hours” for the venue.
In September, we did it. A three course dinner and full evening entertainment, we had a sell out show on the 6th of September ,other than 2 that had last minute things that came up. And everyone loved the show and are asking when is the next show.
Many thanks to Cafe Football Singapore for the support and help, Shushannah Lee Derrick Goh for helping with the organising and Simon Tan for always having faith in my magic. And Nigel Lew and Dylan Tay for being part of it
I dreamt of a big dream on a small stage, and the dream came true.
We will be having the next show on 11th Oct, and seats can be reserved here: Magic After Hours
Some other updates:
October will be really busy, preparing for a Halloween show at the end of the month. Tomorrow i will be doing some filming with LOVE 97.2 Radio for their facebook content again
The busy end of the year season is here! Looking forward to what lies in front!
Firstly, i really wanted to post something before 2016 ended but i was too busy with 3 shows on the last day. 2016 has been great and my busiest year so far. I can only imagine it getting better and will be working hard towards achieving new goals and milestones.
A big thank you to every direct client, repeat clients and event companies and partners for your support in 2016, more to come in 2017~
Thank you to every feature i got on both online and printed media: Vulcan Post, The New paper, BBC Radio, LOVE 97.2 , JTV
And lastly a special shout out to my regular gigs: Beer Market (Past) , 555 Villa Thai, and The Royal Albatross!
Some things to look forward to in 2017 include putting out a new show (maybe 2!), a possible new online series on another platform, and more international performances. Have received a couple of possible opportunities to go overseas, but nothing cast in stone yet, so we’ll see how it goes!
I had the opportunity to talk about my life as a magician and performed for the DJs and live audience on Love 972 at Compass One this week! It was a fun time and the DJs and crowd was very spontaneous and fun! I did a special magic effect for the DJs in celebration of the station’s birthday and also taught everyone there a simple coin trick.
Here are some photos from the event:

I had a lot of fun and so did everyone there, hope you will enjoy it as well!
