Floor Shows and Stage Shows
James Sleight has several different size floorshows so he can easily adapt his performance to your circumstances. For smaller groups James has a show designed to take less space and provide an intimate high impact show with lots of comedy. For larger events and functions James can do a more visual comedy magic show with lots of fun and audience participation. At very large events James works with an assistant and can do high impact effects right up to illusions involving his assistant appearing and vanishing in the most unbelievable ways. Each of these shows is strong entertainment and guarantees you don’t have to lose quality because of the size of your event. James can also tailor each of his shows to your theme or message.
What Sort Of Things Will He Do In The Floorshow?
To get just a taste of what James might do in your floorshow picture the fun as you watch James Sleight fast talk a member of your audience into putting their head in the “ Bloke's vegetable slicing machine ” (A six foot guillotine) “Just to feel the comfort of the stress relieving head rest”. You won't believe the number of laughs in this very witty and funny routine. Another lucky volunteer will get to help as James performs his signature piece where he demonstrates how to disco dance whilst doing his linking ring routine. This trick is a classic of magic and James's routine is not only hilarious but even leaves other magicians scratching their heads. To say that audience participation with James is fun to watch would be like saying that Moses did a little water trick.
The opening illusion in the larger floorshow has never failed to get gasps and even screams from the crowd. When James's assistant suddenly appears from nowhere people are literally shocked. If your event needs to open the show with a bang we suggest you talk to us about this trick.
Walk-around Close up Magic
James Sleight is also a master of close up sleight of hand magic and holds several national awards for his close up magic and comedy. It just does not seem possible that James can create the most amazing effects just inches away and sometimes in your own hands and yet you still have no idea how he does it. The effect on your audience as James moves around the room creating little pools of excitement and laughter is wonderful to watch. Often you will see others craning their necks or calling James over to their group so they can join in the fun. For the ultimate evening of magical entertainment we suggest you have James move around the room earlier in the evening to dazzle your guests at close quarters and then have the stage show later in the night. This not only allows everyone to get to know James a bit before the show but also gives your guests a completely different and personal magic experience. James can also be booked by the hour to perform walk-around or table hopping close up at your event.
Close up Floorshow
Imagine a magic and comedy floorshow that can be performed three feet from your guests. James Sleight has designed this show for those occasions where you have a small number of people but still need top quality entertainment. At these times a full size floorshow is simply out of the question but that should not mean you have to compromise on quality. James has taken the best of his close up magic and combined it with a more personal style of comedy using the dynamics of a smaller group. This creates a very powerful performance leaving your guests laughing and astonished once again. James can also tailor this show to your theme or message.
What Sort Of Things Will He Do In His Close Up Magic?
James Sleight will usually perform…
A lightning fast routine with rubber bands which won James a national award and left Australia's top magicians shocked and stunned. This is one people will definitely be talking about later. A very funny participation routine with sponge balls (One of James's trademark pieces and great entertainment). A demonstration of “The worlds smallest washing machine” (so small it's actually invisible) which is simply crazy fun and amazing magic.
Unbelievable card tricks where you will just not believe these things are possible without any clue as to how he does it, and of course lots and lots of fun and comedy.
