Russ Harvey

Russ's unique style of comedy and mind-blowing illusions have left audiences in tears of laughter, yet baffled by his extraordinary skills.

Russ can perform a variety of magic effects that will leave your guests or clients dumbfounded. He will combine baffling tricks and off beat humour to get everyone talking and laughing, not only on the day but long after your event. He will be seen at your event performing effects with cards, coins and has even been known to read people’s minds by harnessing the mysterious powers of that much-underestimated household object: the egg whisk.

The Magic Circle

As a baby Russ was left on the doorstep of the Magic Circle with a simple note that read, ‘Please teach this baby magic & look after him.’ As such he is a fully fledged member of the Magic Circle which means he knows his craft inside out and the correct way to hold a wand (most people think you use your hands, alas this is not the case). Russ is a deeply talented magician with years of experience under his belt.


If you’re wondering how to make your birthday, engagement, Christmas, christening, funeral, house-warming or My Teenage Son has Finally Cleaned his Bedroom parties, then book Russ, he can do anything at all to make your day more magical.


Russ is brilliant at keeping your guests entertained whilst yourself and loved one have your photos taken for hours and hours and hours… or at the sit down meal. He can also keep entertained any jammy-faced horrors, sorry I mean delightfully cute and adorable children, which means the adults can carry on enjoying the day and continue to gossip about Auntie Jan’s dress! Having a magician at your wedding will leave your guests something to talk about for years to come. Magic is an excellent ice breaker at weddings and it will keep your guests entertained in-between any pauses in the day to ensure the flow.

Russ performed at our annual staff awards last week and was just brilliant. He was funny, engaging, and got the balance of the room just right with his humour, The close-up table magic was just great, people are still trying to figure it out... Everyone I spoke to said they wanted to see more, and one of our associates said he was the best act she had seen! Very funny, very clever, very entertaining. I would recommend him for any event - Kevin Rogers - Commercial Dispute Resolution Lawyer - Wilson Browne Solicitors

Russ performed at our annual Founders Night recently. It was obvious from the laughs and gasps of surprise that everyone in the room was engaged and impressed, but the feedback we got the next morning confirmed it: They loved it. The mix of magic and laughs was perfectly pitched, the tone was spot on, and the delivery was flawless. We would recommend Russ without hesitation. And we’re still trying to figure out where the potato came from - Rob Delaney - Knowle and Dorridge Round Table
