Artist Info


 Sit back... relax... and clear your thoughts. Because Alexander May is probably already reading them! This show is like nothing you have ever seen before – it is a unique mixture of incredible magic, mind reading and good clean fun.

Alexander May offers two types of performances: either doing a full show on a stage or platform or walking around amazing groups of people at their tables or where they are standing. This flexibility means the Magic Of Alexander May can fit in with any type of event and programme you have planned. 


Whether you have your function in a large conference venue, theatre or hotel ballroom; the stage & stand-up shows offered are flexible and perfectly suited to entertain attendees from all different walks of life. All performances are interactive and fun with a unique mixture of mind-blowing magic & comedy. Just imagine the reactions when money appears out of nowhere, audience members ‘bend’ spoons with their minds or Alexander reveals a secret drawing made by the CEO!


Whether your guests are seated or standing, Alexander May mingles with them and performs right in their midst. This interaction between performer & audience provides for amazing memories that you will rarely find in other entertainment forms – creating powerful memories for all. Just imagine the reactions when forks melt in their hands, money appears & multiplies, or their rings become impossibly linked together! And that is just to warm up!

Alexander May offers you a hassle-free service at competitive fees. Making every effort to leave your guests impressed and entertained, it is clear why so many individuals and companies call on him for their entertainment needs. You will definitely not see him pulling rabbits out of hats - he transforms the show into a fun journey of the impossible that will be hard to forget!

Client Feedback

Lance and I would like to thank you entertaining our guests on our wedding day. Planning our wedding from London and not meeting you beforehand was quite hard but you surely delivered excellent, professional, world-class entertainment. . . Your performance made many long journeys, including ours, worthwhile. You are an intelligent performer and are able to blend in and read the crowd. Our guests were quite diverse but you made them feel as if you were a friend. . . Next time I have a function I know that if you are available, I can be guaranteed of a successful function. Thank-you so much!
Lance & Lynn Engelbrecht London, UK

Thank you so much for your entertainment, it is a pity we didn’t get to see any of it but our guests raved about you – the magic and your personality certainly made a great impression on everyone, so thank you!

Thank you very much for participating in our function on the 31st. I think that your performance really complemented the evening and all of the guests really enjoyed watching your illusions. The fork bending was a highlight!
