Online Virtual Magic Show

Why go out? Stay at home and enjoy a world class Close-Up Magic show, live in the comfort of your own home or office!

My name is Darren Whichello - The Rat-Pack Magician! And as well as performing live around London & The South East, I am now performing Virtually too! So, Instead of going out, get your friends and family around - virtually of course - and experience some fast & fun interactive, online magic via Zoom or Google Meet!

I am very excited to announce that my new Zoom Magic Show - "Live from Las Vegas!" - is now up and running! Direct from my lounge to yours! (Or maybe your kitchen, office, hotel or anywhere else you fancy!)

Invite your friends, family or work colleagues around - virtually - for some online magic with an edge!

So, whether it's a party or corporate event, why not add a little extra magic and a touch of Rat-Pack cool!

If you had asked me a few months ago, I would have said Close-Up Magic via Zoom (or any other online platform) just would not work! But then in September I performed at a few events and came up with some socially distanced versions of my routines and I must say they seemed to work! So, this got me thinking again about Zoom! If it worked a few feet away why not try it at the end of a camera too! I decided that I did not want to just perform all these Mentalist /mind reading effects that are so popular on Zoom at the moment (although I do have some really cool ones in the show!) but instead try to recreate the sort of fast and fun, interactive magic I would normally perform at a live party or event!


I have come up with a nice 40-45 minute show using two cameras and a professional lighting set-up. All the tricks and effects are quick, so if you need to grab a drink you will not miss too much and also find it easy to get back into the next trick! As well as card tricks (one of which you will all be able to do at home in real time with me!) you will also be experencing effects with coins, lottery tickets and much, much more. Including a touch of mind reading and something very special and rather visual too! So, although I don't ever think  Zoom Magic will replace seeing and experiencing Close-Up Magic live, it's not a bad substitute for the time being!

So, whether you are all together in the same room or spread across the country or even the whole world, as long as you all have an internet connection we can get together for a great fun and hopefully amazing Zoom virtual magic experience!

The cost of a Zoom online show is £150 and if you need any technical advise or are a little unsure of anything please feel free to get in touch.


Online Magic Lessons

Have you ever fancied being a Magician? Or maybe a bit of a Card-Sharp?

Why not learn a few cool, fun card tricks to amuse  or maybe impress your family and friends! Or possibly a rather special team building experience with your work colleagues!

I can now offer online Close-Up Magic lessons via Zoom or Goggle Meet.

From my home direct to yours (or anywhere else you happen to be!) This can either be on a one to one basis or as a group.

If you are new to magic, we can start with the basics of card magic and quickly progress to learning exciting tricks!

And if you have some experience we can hopefully move your magic along to the next level and make you a confident performer for live audiences.

I have been performing professionally at parties and events of all sizes for around a decade and in that time have come up with a great selection of real world magic that can be used in any situation! (Not the sort of stuff you might see on YouTube and Instagram that only looks good if you are at the end of a perfectly angled  camera!) You will be able to pick up any pack of playing cards and wow everyone around!

The lessons are between an hour to an hour and a half  long and can be recorded for you to look back on and study.

They are priced at £50 each. A discount is available for booking four or more.

There is also an extra per head charge for corporate events.

Please feel free to contact me for more details.
