Sean says ...

Award Winning Magician
Award Winning Magician

When you look at the websites of different magicians, the first thing you'll notice is virtually all of them are "award winning". So just in case you've ever wondered how so many different magicians can have managed to win awards - let me try and explain. You see, most towns have their own magic society where all the local magicians meet up, and all those magic societies stage annual competitions both for stage entertainers and for close-up magic. Naturally, any performer who has won one of these local competitions can legitimately call themselves an award winning magician. I even heard of one "award winning" magician who uses the phrase on the grounds that he's a magician and he once won a bronze award for swimming!


As my website describes me as an award winning magician (surprise surprise) I better give you the details of my own awards. The first national award I won was the close-up competition of The International Brotherhood of Magicians - the largest magic society in the world. Other previous winners of this award include Paul Daniels and Wayne Dobson, both of whom went on to achieve great success on British TV. I was also the winner of the British Close-Up Magic Championships, staged at the largest magicians convention in the world in front of an audience of 2000 of my fellow magicians.  Performing close-up magic for 2000 people has got to be a trick in itself!


I narrowly missed out on the bronze award for swimming.
