Personalised magic for Bride and Groom -Yorkshire Wedding Magician - Oliver Parker

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

People call Oliver @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 used to breakdance professionally, facilitate team building rhythm and drumming activities with my father’s business, offer health & fitness advice, enjoy learning about photography and have a strange obsession with Iceland

My Journey

Age 7

My grandad and mother, 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! (And again the year after!)

Age 30

I spent my 20s travelling the world and building up my business to entertain at around 200 events, media appearances and consultations 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!  

Age 31

Despite starting 2020 with a trip of a lifetime working in Thailand with colleagues and sharing incredible new magical ideas, Covid-19 quickly swept the world, so on the day of the first lockdown I made a break for the border and spent most of the pandemic with my girlfriend in Germany…

Thankfully I was able to continue my work with the Teenage Cancer Unit at LGI hospital and other clients like Headway by creating 2 different Virtual Magic Shows & Workshops via Zoom as well as producing magical video content for clients such as St James’s Place Wealth Management so that people could still be blown away by my magic… but through video instead!

Now

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 good magic…

And I love sharing my magic with people!

    positive review  This was the 2nd time we had been entertained by Oliver and once again he didn't fail to impress. It's always great to see the sceptics in the room become believers by the end of Oliver's show. Even though we had seen Oliver before it's always fascinating to see all his tricks. We will be booking again!!

    positive review  We hired Oliver to entertain our guests at our Halloween party this year. Not only did Oliver arrive in full costume but he also had our guests completely captivated and questioning their own reality! What made the night so special was that Oliver's last trick was personalised for my family, which we absolutely loved!! If you're looking for a magician who is able to make each of your guests feel special and leave them completely in awe of magic then hire this guy. You will not be disappointed.

Oliver performed some magic at my son's 13th bday party last week. His communication leading up to the event was amazing so I knew I could rely on him. His magic on the night was absolutely fantastic - all the guests loved him. He also performed some special tricks just for the bday boy which my son loved - would highly recommend Oliver!!

We hired Oliver for a private party - an absolutely perfect choice. As a close-up magician he baffled everybody with his extraordinary skill. And as a relaxed friendly presence he felt like a guest with us rather than an “act”. We’d have him back tomorrow - if only for another chance to try and work out how he does it!

Oliver was booked as a surprise for my engagement party and was absolutely fantastic. He mingled through all the guests and his close up magic was an excellent ice breaker. Thanks for coming - Oli & Charlie

Oliver entertained students and staff at our Leavers Prom and left them spellbound. His magic is amazing and he has a great personality which everyone loved. Oliver has been at previous events we have held and we will, no doubt, be booking him again. Thanks for adding that special something to our event!
