Your goal is to deliver a high-profile celebration, awards ceremony or launch event that creates a buzz of excitement and leaves a lasting impression. Where do you start?
A PROVEN REPUTATION
Perhaps the thought of performing - or even just speaking - in front of a large audience fills you with dread. Maybe the idea of taking control of a room full of people, and making sure everything runs to time, makes your heart race.
Hire me as your professional host or MC (emcee).
As a skilled magician and entertainer who performs for a living, I'll captivate your audience, keep your event on track, and ensure a polished professional evening from start to finish.
A PROVEN REPUTATION
With more than 16 years of experience as a magician and entertainer - and having performed at hundreds of high-profile weddings and events - I thrive on doing the things that fill you with terror!
Over 100 five-star Google reviews testify to my warm, personable and humorous nature, and my ability to host or emcee an event to remember.
Need help with your script or running order? No problem! I'll work closely with you to understand your audience and goals for the event, and to refine the script for a super successful evening.
An on-site dress-rehearsal on the day gives you the chance to ask any final questions, provide stage direction and introduce me to your AV crew.

"Richard is brilliant! He recently performed at our Customer Service Awards in Oxford Town Hall. This is a large event with 200 guests and Richard really worked the room. Having seen him perform a few times now at various events, I can safely say he always manages to amaze a crowd.
During the event, he also hosted the draw for our charity raffle prior to the prize giving. Richard is naturally funny and was able to deliver the perfect warm up to the main event. Thanks so much Richard, you were fab! 11/10 would recommend for your wedding or event!"
