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, comedy 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 makes John Archer the idead choice for event.
"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.
