Rob James - Magician Biography
James is currently one of the UK's top close up magicians.
Rob studied magic from the age of 14 when a friend showed him some simple card tricks. A few years later he joined the Bath Circle of Magicians where he won many of their awards against competition from senior members. Shortly after he was mentored by Derren Brown who was living in Bristol at the time.
Professional bookings as a magician followed, firstly working three times a week as a magician for the City Centre Restaurant chain and then as resident magician at Byzantium Restaurant in Bristol. During this time Rob focussed his energy on the corporate and private sector and built up a large client base of entertainment agencies, event planners, businesses and individuals.
In 2011 Rob debuted "Magicana" a stage show which went on to get much acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe festival.
