  • Daryl uses illusion and charm to guarantee a perfect roving magician. But he also uses different objects he produces from a 'hand-bag', his diary, a kitchen knife, odd bits of rope, light globes and rubber bands are common. For tourists, he loves to play 'travel agent poker' with a surprise ending that promotes Tasmania as a great tourist destination. Throughout his table routine, Daryl's main emphasis is the humour in the performance. Daryl is a personable magician who combines conversation and positive interaction with clients while also amazing them with his illusion.

  • Mr Beep is a children's magician with experience at private parties, schools and playgroups, social club children's events and commercial store and shopping centre promotions. His preferred audience is three to ten-year-olds. Mr Beep's routine relies heavily on colours, numbers and story telling. Most of his effects use objects that are familiar to children .... beach buckets, balls, colouring-in books etc. Sometimes Mr Beep is assisted by his rotund but lovable ventriloquist pal, Rollie or Artie from Antarctica. Artie is a penguin with attitude!! And he has a great repertoire of new, silly and favourite songs and jokes for the kids to enjoy! Although there is a slight educational overlay to his act, Mr Beep insists that his emphasis will always be on fun !!
