I was sat in a pub in London when I happened to notice a guy with a deck of cards. He looked like a magician so I got talking to him and he told me his name was Andy Field London Magician.
Met a Magician In London
He offered to show me a few sleight of hand card trick miracles and I was totally amazed. I asked him if he was a member of the Magic Circle in London and he said he was not. He told me there were a lot of Magicians in London and most of them were members. He told me that being a magician in London was very competitive so he also worked in other cities around the UK such as Birmingham, Bristol Cardiff and Gloucester.
I asked him how long he had been a magician and how he got started. He told me his uncle in London was an amateur magician who showed him a few tricks when he was younger and that is how he had gotten bitten by the magic bug and had been a magician ever since.
I asked him if he had a favourite trick and Andy said it would be his most recent one and he offered to show it me. I was totally amazed. I had a friend just outside London who was also a magician but I must admit that I had not seen card magic like this before.
I asked him how long he practices for and Andy said he tries to get at least one to two hours in a day so he can remember all the moves and patter to his effects.
