Martin Reed Most Frequently Asked Questions

Below are all of the questions I could remember having been asked in the past. If you have a question that's not on here, please feel free to email or call my agent, Alive Network, on 01782 740839.


How does the booking process work?

Simply check my availability online, or contact my booking agent Alive Network by telephone on 01782 740839 or email and request either for my Close-up Magic act, Comedy Stage Magic act or a mixture of both for your event. They will take a small deposit to confirm the booking and you then have the option to pay the balance in cash / cheque on the night of the event or alternatively pay the full amount upfront to Alive Network.


What do we need to provide?

For my Close-up Magic act, you only need to provide guests for me to entertain. I can set up in any small area so nothing needs to be arranged.

For my Comedy Stage Magic act, I require:

  • Sufficient space to perform (minimum 4m x 3m for the full show. Small spaces can be performed in on request but certain routines will not be possible).
  • A back stage / designated green room near the stage area to set up and prepare for the show (I can perform without this as long as there is enough space in the room to store my cases etc. away from the performance area).
  • A power socket to plug in my PA system


How long will I stay for?

Completely flexible with your requirements.

For Close-up Magic, 1 hour would be sufficient for up to 50 guests / 2 hours for up to 80 / 3 hours for 80+. In these times, most if not all guests will be able to witness the magic first hand.

For my Comedy Stage Magic act, common requests are a 45 minute show, however I am fully flexible to perform a 6/7 minute short variety show slot / a 20 minute short impactive show / or up to a full 1 hour show.


How far do I travel?

I am based in West Sussex however travel all over the UK to perform and worldwide on request.
