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  Oliver came to our wedding yesterday and blew the minds of all ur guests! All evening people were asking us where we found him and wanted his contact details! From the moment we met we knew he would be the perfect addition to our day, he was very approachable and interacted well with our son! His personalised tricks for us were amazing! Everybody was in agreement that he was the best close up magician then had ever seen!

    positive review  We have booked Oliver for the past 3 BACIL Awards Evenings. His close up magic is raved about throughout the event. He is very professional throughout and knows how to work the room. I could not recommend Oliver enough and by how much all of our guests talk about it I don't think they can either!

    5 star review  TLDR: Book this guy, he will make any event spectacular I came across Oliver's page by chance when I was searching for entertainment for my graduation ball I was organising. I looked at the reviews and watched a few of his videos and it peaked my interest. When I wanted to know more he was very easy to get hold of via messenger and we were able to talk about the kind of things I wanted. Oliver is extremely friendly and professional, it was a pleasure doing business with him. The actual night itself, he was punctual and very well presented. One of the main reasons I knew I had made the right call with hiring Oliver was the gasps and applause that filtered around the room as he worked the pre-dinner drinks and then in between the meal courses. When I saw the magic myself, there was no denying that this is a guy who has worked hard at his craft, his slight of hand is impeccable and the range of tricks was superb. Not only is Oliver very friendly and talented, he is efficient and worked tirelessly to get through the huge guest list so that everyone was able to take home some magic that night. When people came up to me to talk about the graduation ball, they could not stop talking about Oliver. If you want a night that people will remember, then Oliver is definitely a way to do it

    positive 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 had Oliver come and do some magic when our guests arrived for our wedding reception, everyone absoultey loved his magic, our guests were shocked in how he did things. He made the effort to go and see my parents and thank them for letting him be apart our special day. Oliver was full of smiles, he chatted to everyone at our wedding. Absoultey amazing from start to finish. We would definitely be using him again for any event. Thank you for making our day full of magic.

We booked Oliver for my 60th party he was absolutely amazing (a comment echoed by ALL the guests) and we are so glad we booked him – a true highlight of the night. He has an amazing talent no doubt perfected by hundreds if not thousands of hours hard practicing, but more importantly he has a naturally pleasant style and manner which people really do warm to – a perfect combination.Special thanks go to him for helping our 5 year old granddaughter who was feeling a bit poorly and teary – Oliver spotted this and came over, knelt in front of her and did a couple of special little tricks just for her. She smiled for the first time that night and it really was a turning point – she cheered up from that point on!Thank you Oliver!

Wow where do we start. We booked Oliver about 2.5 years ago now, he was amazing when when we had to change our date three times due to Covid.Aside from how stunning his magic is (just ridiculously good) he's so professional, friendly, he was there early, left a little later than booked. Also took some fab photos (a dual job at a wedding?!).Our guests loved him, it gave us a chance to have a moment as no one was interested in us with Oliver around!Oliver is a modern magician, this was important to us, kids and older guests ones loved him and I don't think he missed a guest out. he left with a lot of new fans.An integral part of our day and if you are thinking of a magician, he's so much more :)Thanks again, Rosemary & Tony xx
