David Penn is a performer who has never stood still when it comes to the business of entertainment. He doesn’t just perform the usual magic effects, the like of which you may have seen before at corporate events; he is a world-renowned tech magician.
“Tech magic mixes physical, magical effects with the digital world using mobile phones and tablets,”
said David. This unique style of entertainment has undoubtedly been wowing David’s regular clients, including Sony, Panasonic and BT. For CISCO, David toured the world in 2019, launching the Spark Board to press and industry buyers, for which he created an interactive performance demonstrating the device’s unique features.
David is an Associate of The Inner Magic Circle and has lectured from London to Las Vegas on his unique style of magic and inventions used by magicians worldwide. Acting as a creative consultant for television magicians and Got Talent Golden Buzzer performers has helped David develop a process that he can apply to any event or product launch.
For example, when Hyundai wanted to launch their new seven-seater Santa Fe, David and his team created a unique, unbelievable illusion. At the UK Motor Show, seven people mysteriously appeared inside the new car whilst a media audience surrounded it.
When David first became interested in magic at the age of ten, the entertainment scene was very different.
“I loved performers like Wayne Dobson and Paul Daniels,” he said. “Performers like these had the opportunity to perform in cabaret venues and clubs, which were abundant throughout the UK. Unfortunately, over the years, these types of venues have seriously declined, so I am thankful that I was able to transition to the corporate market.”
Highly respected on the conference circuit, David uses his unique set of skills to demonstrate how to change people’s perceptions and energise the delegates at the start of an important session. David was awarded The British Champion of Illusion, so his performance is naturally entertaining and engaging. However, when you are invited behind the curtain and David lets you in on some of the techniques and strategies used in a magical performance, it also becomes inspiring.
Even though David performs large-scale illusion, which saw himself receive two standing ovations on Britain’s Got Talent, it is intriguing to discover his favourite environment for his magical skills.
“I love performing VIP Parlour shows! These retain the intimate feel of close-up magic but are performed in a private room with the smaller audience seated very close to the performance space. It is very immersive! This VIP atmosphere makes it ideal as a treat for special guests, essential clients or exceptional staff members. For me, it is the most sophisticated style of entertainment, and this was confirmed when I had the honour of performing privately for Her Majesty The Queen and her guests within Buckingham Palace.”
David is the first choice for discerning individuals, companies, event organisers and leading entertainment agencies organising memorable entertainment for corporate events, awards nights, private parties, product launches, networking events, exhibitions, conferences and high-end weddings.
