Who is

Professional Entertainer Close Up Magician & B-Boy (Breakdancer)

Oliver calls himself @funprovider for a reason!

Just check out his magic and breakdancing over the last decade…

Why do you do magic?

I love making people happy, I’m a giver 😉

I mostly do this through magic, but I also breakdance professionally, facilitate team building rhythm and drumming activities with my father’s business, offer health & fitness advice and have a strange obsession with Iceland

My Journey

Age 7

My grandad and family, none of whom were magicians, introduced me to simple card tricks, children’s magic sets and magic books from about the age of 7 and supported my journey to award winning success and professional performances whilst still in school…

Age 11

Entertaining others is my passion and what makes me happy –  I had this realisation from about the age of 11 when I would perform street magic in my local town and every break time for pupils and teachers at my high school. I’ve never wanted to do a ‘real’ job since! 

Age 12

I received a massive confidence boost and reassurance that my relentless hours of hard work and practise was paying off during my junior magician years when I won the first ever competition I entered: MagicTricks.co.uk Under 18’s Close-up Entertainer of the Year with a delightful prize of £200.
More awards and recognition soon followed from well respected members of The Magic Circle, The Northern Magic Circle, The Leeds Magic Circle and The Bradford Magic Circle – blowing people away in both Close-Up Magic competitions and Stage Magic competitions…

Age 14

Aside from relative’s family Birthday parties and charity events – I was hired for my first professional well paid event by Asda at just 14 – performing close up magic around the Holt Park, Leeds store for a Harry Potter book launch day.

Age 16

At the age of 16 I realised I loved the ability to connect with my audiences on a personal level, interacting with them face to face and experiencing their reactions as I made miracles happen right under their noses – this is when I decided to specialise in performing close up magic with everyday items such as money, playing cards, jewelry etc. and leave the out-dated traditional cheesy stage magic props behind. 

Age 18

As soon as I left 6th Form, I registered as self-employed and tried to take over Leeds… with a pack of cards. 

Age 26

It had been 10 years since entering my last magic competition so I decided to enter the Leeds Magic Circle – Close Up Magician competition… winning 1st place against some great Leeds magicians both young and old!

Now – Age 29

I now travel the world and am hired to entertain at around 200 events per year – including several major corporate clients, but also lots of special individuals whose beautiful wedding days I’ve shared, Birthdays I’ve contributed to and soaked up far more nightlife than one individual should be able to handle!  

After well over 20 years of practising, performing, competing and perfecting my art of close up magic, I can tell you with 99.3% certainty that:

People love magic…

And I love showing magic to people!

Treat your guests with magic at your event

Close Up Magician - Oliver Parker Facebook Page Reviews

    5 star review  We hired Oliver for our annual company Charity Ball this year, and he was great. He tailored everything to the fact that this is quite a corporate event (referencing our vendor sponsors throughout for example) while still maintaining a fun and light-hearted patter with guests. He was amazing, and the feedback we received about his work from our guests was great. We would definitely recommend Oliver without hesitation.

We have had Oliver at our last 2 Halloween events and are looking forward to making it our third this year. Oliver is a top entertainer and works our large crowd of party goers of all ages marvellously. I really enjoy hearing from guests about all the different tricks he has performed through the night. They are all perplexed and thrilled to have seen great magic that they just cannot unravel!With a vast array of tricks up his sleeve, he also has an easy, entertaining manner and his tricks are always exciting. Kids and adults follow him round keen for the next trick and he really is the talk of the night. We hope to always welcome Oliver back at our events and you should definitely try him at yours!

We first met Oliver on our wedding day when he entertained not only us but all of our guests. Everyone was blown away by his magic. Oliver is very friendly and always aims to please. We loved him so much we recently asked him to come to our home and entertain at our 4 year olds birthday party. All the kids loved his tricks. I can't recommend Oliver enough. Keep doing what you do best. X

We booked Oliver for our wedding last weekend and he went over and above anything we could have hoped for. He is so professional and amazingly talented...our guests were blown away! And he even provided some personalised magic tricks for the bride and groom so we didn’t miss out! If anyone is thinking of hiring a magician for an event, we would highly recommend Oliver - great entertainer!
