Meet The Team

James Long


James Long is a professional, multi-award winning magician and illusionist.

 

James was bitten by the magic bug at the age of 9 and had won his first award by the time he was 11. He has since won many more awards including the UK Magic Junior Magician of the Year. While performing at his first corporate show (at the age of 15) James was approached by a gentleman who offered him, there and then, a 3 month contract on a ship. James politely explained to the man he would love to do it, the only problem being “I have to go to school on Monday morning." He did eventually work for the gentleman upon leaving school a year later. Since then James has performed all around the UK and worldwide from the Caribbean to the Arctic Circle, Asia to Africa and Europe to the USA.


The show features modern, highly original and exciting custom built illusions, including a mesmerising levitation, an inexplicably fast transformation and a death defying escape. Its fast paced, edgy and all accompanied by a pulsing soundtrack 

With over 20 years of professional experience James has earned himself an enviable reputation, and has won high acclaim from some of the magic worlds top names and entertainment critics alike. 

With constant development and investment, the show continues to reach new heights.

Maddy Stamp

Maddy joined the team in April 2017 as we headed back to Asia for our second contract with Genting Cruise Lines. She has been a valuable  part of the show ever since! 

 

With a background in professional dancing, she graduated from Paul McCartney's LIPA institute in Liverpool before completing contracts in various countries including India, Bulgaria and Cyprus.

 

Fun fact, both James and Maddy are from the same city and live only 10 minutes apart, but didn't know this about each other for 2 months!
