An Evening With Slightly Unusual | Prepare For A One In A Lifetime Experience 2023

We’re super proud to announce our upcoming show this upcoming February! If you have never experienced an evening with Slightly Unusual, now is the perfect chance to see us perform live in person. This is a once in a lifetime experience like no other. With some of the best close up performers in the UK attending, alongside custom designed illusions that combine laugh out loud comedy with the spectacle of a Las Vegas Show.

An Evening With Slightly Unusual | Prepare For A One In A Lifetime Experience 2023

We are considered to be one of the finest comedy illusion acts in the world. We’ve performed at thousands of corporate events, weddings and made regular TV appearances on channels such as Sky, BBC, ITV and so much more. Nobody else can command accolades like we do. We’re not just known for our grand illusions. We have some of the best close up magicians within the country, who combine sleight of hand and audience into one amazing experience that’s guaranteed to create the wow factor. No two magicians are ever the same!

Close Up Magicians

Compèred the show is no other than Craig Petty himself! We have the incredible talents of Nemed Phoenix, Kieran Shepherd and Wayne Goodman. Nemed was the resident magician at the famous Illusions Magic Bar in Manchester for several years. Guests flocked to the bar from all over the UK just to see Nemed in action! Kieran has been performing magic for over 20 years, enthralling audiences, captivating their imaginations and making them grin from cheek to cheek. He is a naturally charming, cheeky and charismatic performer. He loves to have fun with people, spread joy and reignite that childhood wonder inside everyone. He is not just a magician, he's the life of the party and will ensure your event is talked about for years to come. Wayne Goodman is one of the most recognisable characters in the British Magic Community. He has been a professional entertainer his entire life and has literally been there and done that! He is a very successful close up magic, stand up magician and kids show entertainer. He has also created some of the most popular magic tricks released to the magic community. He has also written 17 books on the subject of magic, performing and comedy. Rest assured, they are amazing and will provide a close up experience like no other.

Grand Illusion Shows

Following the close up magic is our grand illusion show with the talents of Matt Clewley, Kat Stanley and Kimberely King! Matt is an incredible performer with a wealth of experience. He has been performing on stage his entire life. It’s this performing experience that helps him stand out compared to other magicians. While most magicians focus on sleight of hand Matt is the total package! He combines his acting experience with sleight of hand to create truly bespoke magic and mentalism performances.

Kat is the longest serving member of our award-winning illusion show. Several of our illusions have been custom built by Kat herself! She has literally toured the length and breadth of the UK with Slightly Unusual and is without a doubt the heart and soul of the team! If you have ever seen our award winning illusion show there is a good chance that Kat was either in the show or had choreographed one of the routines. Kimberely is our newest member who is rapidly becoming the lead assistant in the show. She is as talented as she is beautiful and the speed at which she disappears literally right in front of your eyes will both amaze and baffle you. One thing is for sure when you watch Kimberely on stage you will not believe your eyes. She really is an amazing performer and a wonderful person.

Ryland The Kid Magician Closing The Show

Closing the evening of the show is no other than Ryland The Kid Magician himself! Ryland is the son of Craig Petty but you all might know him better as the BGT Semi-Finalist! His audition got a standing ovation from all four judges and the whole audience, with Simon Cowell famously saying that Ryland was one of the best magic acts to appear on BGT in 2022. By the age of 10 he has performed on stage at The Hammersmith Apollo, The London Palladium, The Winter Gardens in Blackpool, The Excel in London as well as smaller venues all over the UK. He has recently just completed a residency at The House Of Secrets in Blackpool as well as being invited to perform on stage with Oliver Tabor at The IBM Convention 2022. He was also invited to perform on The Gala Show at The world’s largest magic convention- The Blackpool Magic Convention. One thing is for sure at only 10 years of age Ryland has achieved more than most professional magicians achieve in their entire career and he is just getting started.
