Sean Brannigan is one of Irelands leading close up Magicians having been involved in the business now for over 20 years. His Magic has been seen at Corporate Days, Weddings, Product Launchs , Trade Shows, Private Parties, Christmas Parties, Birthdays etc.
Sean is an exponent of all types of Magic but admits close up is his favourite as an entertainment medium. ‘It’s the most rewarding and fulfilling form of magic for me because it’s the most flexible type of entertainment performed at the most intimate level.’ And he goes on to say ‘What appeals most about close-up magic is the very fact that it’s presented at a table in close proximity to the audience. Some of my funniest experiences have been presenting close-up magic. It’s a form of magic that appeals greatly to men and women of all ages and tastes.’
