Strolling Magic, Street Magic & Close Up Magic
"Peter's performance was truly a thrill... to see a real master of sleight of hand performer his 'miracles' just inches from your eyes is truly spectacular. After he left we just kept saying, 'How did he do that!?
What Peter presents isn't a magic show, it's truly a magical experience."
Nora Reilly Palmer, The Coyle Company
Close Up Magic - Magic that's intimate, immediate and personal. Close up Magic happens right without stage lights, smoke machines or camera tricks. It's magic close enough that you can reach out and touch it.
Close Up Magic happens in the hands of the magician or in YOUR hands! Objects appear and disappear. Things float or 'morph' while you watch, just inches away.
Whether it's called 'strolling magic', 'hand magic', 'illusions' or 'sleight of hand', its effect is undeniable and lasting.
Peter's close up magic makes the most jaded spectator laugh out loud with surprise and shake his head in disbelief.
