Jack Bryce - Biography



This is the story of how Jack became one of the UK's busiest Professional Close Up Magicians




Magician Jack Bryce




Jack has been interested in magic since he was 9 years old, his grandfather who lived in Glasgow would invent tricks and this helped to keep Jack's interest in magic.   His father was also very interested in card magic. Although Jack was born in Glasgow he moved down South to join the Royal Marines at age 19.  On his many travels as a Royal Marine, Jack would never be without a pack of cards or a few coins which could always be relied on to win him a few beers in the many clubs and bars he would happen to find himself in in the many different parts of the world he would visit as a serviceman.



At age 21 when Jack was based at Royal Marines Poole, so about this time he joined his first magic society, the Wessex Magical Association, which is based in Bournemouth.

After having been a member of this magical society for over 7 years, Jack got drafted to Plymouth where he became a member of the Plymouth Magic Circle.  After many years as member of this magical society, Jack was honoured to hold office of first,  the secretary and then President of the Plymouth Magic Circle.



On leaving the Royal Marines in 1996 Jack, decide to make his hobby into a living and became a full time Professional Close up Magician



Recently Jack has moved back up North to get married and live in Edinburgh but to also base his magic business in Scotland. Jack has recently joined two magic societies in Scotland. The Edinburgh Magic Circle and the West Lothian Magic Circle.



Jack's has won many awards for his close up magic. While a member of the Plymouth Magic Circle Jack was twice winner of the Grant Cup for close up magic and more recently was winner of the Edinburgh Magic Circle Sonny Day 2012 Award for close up magic. Recently he was also awarded Best Entertainer (non musical) in Edinburgh by the Wedding Industry Experts 2013 Awards.


Jack is a member of the world famous Magic Circle of London.

Here is a few examples of what people are saying about Jack's magic:


"Wow do that again!" Alexis Bowater, South West TV News Reader


"Brilliant!" Paul Sturrock, Manager Plymouth Argyle Football Team



"Jack's magic is as baffling as it is entertaining!"  The Stage



"Absolutely Amazing!" Donald Sinden



"Amazing!"  Angela Rippon



"What the !@$#!" Liam Gallagher



"Wonderful Magic!" Miss Zara Phillips



Jack's military and corporate back ground has given him the ability to deal with any type of audience, his unique intimate style along with his fun nature and exceptional interpersonal skills has enabled him to rapidly create rapport with audiences from all walks of life.



Jack's performance is fast paced...signed cards jump to the top of the pack or appear in pockets, coins appear under watches or are bent in the spectators hand, bottles and drinks appear from nowhere and rings vanish and appear on key rings or into sealed envelopes...



Jack blends comedy with mind-blowing magic and the following are some examples of events where Jack has performed.


By Royal Appointment


May 2003 saw Jack performing by Royal Appointment.  The performance, at an exclusive inauguration ceremony of  P & O's 'White Sisters', Adonia and Oceana, which was attended by many distinguished guests.  The naming and bottle splash of  these two ships was carried out by HRH The Princess Royal and her daughter, Miss Zara Phillips on her first royal engagement.


Tsunami Appeal - Charity Auction



Restaurant Magic

Jack just couldn't resist posing with these three lovely ladies....seriously though, Jack donated his magical services to help raise funds for the Tsunami appeal. The Royal Garden Chinese restaurant in Plymouth City centre, played host to a charity auction, where the sum of over 7000 was raised for the Tsunami appeal.






The Spring 2005 edition of Plymouth life Magazine profiled Jack in an article entitled "Abracadabra". This looked at Jack's career as a magician, from watching his grandfather make magic tricks and his first performances as an eager 9 year old, to more recent engagements across the South West UK and beyond.

Just a note to say how pleased we are with the first class entertainment you provided at our house party to celebrate Richard's 50th.  

Most of our guests had never seen magic that close up before and we will never forget some of the reactions of our guests...that will remain with us for a long time.

Your professionalism shone through and we will not hesitate to use you again in the future.

Many thanks,

Julie & Richard Marshal
