Colin Underwood Corporate Show

Combining comedy magic, pick pocketing, crazy juggling, impersonations and loads of audience participation, Colin's corporate show takes any corporate event - big or small - to a new level!  With a knack of choosing the perfect spectator for each routine, Colin's show appeals to guests of all ages and cultures. Although his routines have been honed through countless performances over the years, Colin keeps it fresh each time with his hilarious ad libbing, situation comedy and audience participation.  No two Colin Underwood shows are ever the same! 

Close-up Magician

An intimate and interactive experience between the magician and the audience, Colin's close-up miracles never fail to wow guests from all walks of life.  Performing with everyday articles including coins, cards, rings and jewellery, Colin strolls amongst guests, giving them ample opportunity to experience the magic up close.  This style of entertainment is suitable for banquets, award ceremonies, corporate luncheons or dinner functions and weddings where guests are mingling around, or comfortably seated at their tables. He will entertain each table with a mix of strong visual magic, crazy wit and humour.
