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!
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.
"You might think that close magic couldn’t possibly survive the lockdown? I know Lee and I certainly did…how wrong could we be. Zoom came to the rescue again - how amazing. Looking that close worked so well, we had a great time. It’s so amazing how creative people are making things work. We loved being close to the action but far away at the same time.
Darren Whichellos ‘Las Vagas - Rat Pack’ style it worked so well with the magic.
Cant wait for his next performance."

"We had a magic show from Darren zoomed live to our house last weekend and it was soooo much fun! Our favourite part was the mind reading... how did he do that??! Crazy! We linked with friends for our show so were able to share some time ‘together’, interacting in these otherwise dull times. Definitely recommend Darren!"
"The show was superb, especially liked the bottle/coin trick and the table!"
"Really great Zoom show, would really recommend it. Kept the whole family entertained. Brilliant!"
"Great show, has it all. Brilliant show, thoroughly enjoyed it and it works really well online."
"This must have been a real effort to give a magic show at home that would normally be done in person up close to a nearby audience. Good entertainment, great magic and very funny. Suitable for everyone."
"What a brilliant show, it kept me and my family entertained. The Mind Reading’ was truly ‘Mind Blowing’.....Amazing! I would highly recommend this show to watch."
"Your Zoom performance on Sunday was brilliant! Can't wait for the next one. "
