Jon Allen first became interested in magic at the age of nine. A hobby turned into a job when he started working for Marvin’s Magic in Harrods and Hamleys in London’s west end.
Jon has lectured at The Magic Circle in London, The Magic Castle in Hollywood and for many other magic societies and conventions around the world.
His first big magical influence was David Willaimson and comedic influences include Robin Williams and Eddie Izzard; he admires their free-style approach to performing. Being creative in both routining and presentation is something Jon strives for with his magic.
Jon’s lecture is all about magic for “the masses.” Predominantly close-up orientated, without too many technical moves. Instead, as well as the physical ‘how to’ of the routines, Jon focuses on the psychological and sneaky subtleties that make the magic work. His explanations are both informative and entertaining, providing information that can be applied to whatever type of magic the individuals in the audience perform. Jon’s lecture includes routines with cards, coins, sugar packets, rope, thread and rubber bands.
