John Archer - Comedy Magician

John Archer has been working as a professional Comedy Magician for the past 13 years and was working semi-professionally for 10 years before that. Since turning professional John has won many awards both in the UK and abroad.

John now works in many areas performing Cabaret, Stage and Close up or Table Magic for a multitude of events and organisations including Corporate, Private, Theatre, Cruises and Television. As well as being top class performer John has also written and appeared in several Television shows.


If it's a stand-up performer you want then John Archer has an award winning comedy cabaret show to suit every occasion, from the private party to the large corporate event. From the largest theatres to a small intimate restaurant he manages to combine silly props, audience involvement and world-class tricks to give a unique brand of entertainment. Great for that after dinner moment or to liven a crowd up after a few long speeches.

John performs his tricks in a unique and contemporary way that have won accolades from his peers, making him a sought after performer for magic conventions both in the UK and abroad. Some say there is no other like him.

Cards merely thought of by spectators are correctly named. Coins are taped over John's eyes with heavy-duty carpet tape, an examined blindfold and more tape. Yet when members of the audience draw pictures, John can describe them all in perfect detail... Items vanish and appear in strange place as John performs great feats of mental and physical dexterity... All this and much more, with a unique comedy by-play and 'off the wall' improvisation make John Archer a sensible choice


As it says - magic performed close-up, right in front of the spectators. Sometimes referred to as 'Table Magic' No camera tricks, quick cuts or clever boxes. It may be in a restaurant or at a formal function, in fact it could be anywhere where groups of people need to be entertained 'close-up', whether they are sat down or maybe mix and mingle at a reception. John can put your guests at ease performing unbelievable feats with cards, coins, elastic bands, nails, corks or whatever comes to hand, and unlike some close-up performers... he's funny and entertaining too.

It's a great way to help a group of people bond together and remember the event.

John has performed both his close-up and cabaret magic at many events including: Comedy clubs, Dinner dances, Wedding receptions, Christmas dinners, Cabarets, Promotional events, Fund raising events, Corporate presentations, Cocktail parties, Special adult birthday parties, Hospitality functions, Restaurants etc. Maybe John Archer is the man for you?

John is the current ‘Magic Circle Stage Magician of the Year’ and certainly one of the best comedy magicians in the UK today.

"Booking an act for my Dad's 70th birthday, I wanted a great act and went straight to John Archer- his reputation in the magic world is among the very best. I was so pleased he was able to do it, and he absolutely brought the house down. It was brilliant, hysterically funny, and perfectly pitched for the occasion. He made the evening. I'd recommend him unreservedly."Derren Brown - TV Magician and Psychological Illusionist
