If you'd have told me in 2019 that I'd have to create and perform a virtual show via Zoom, and rely on that for a source of income for a period of 18 months I would not have believed it, however, Covid-19 happened and despite my initial thoughts and feelings towards them, virtual shows proved to be a GREAT solution for those looking for interactive, online entertainment during an extrodinary period of self-isolation worldwide and I enjoyed them more than I ever believed possible!
I am leaving this on my website as a reminder of a truly extrodinary period of time.
Many people have been in touch to ask how such a show works, so here is the answer.
Show appreciation to your clients, teams and employees by gathering them together for an experience they will talk about long after the event is over.
OTHER WAYS PEOPLE ARE USING VIRTUAL SHOWS:
Here are just a few of the lovely comments I've received from previous virtual shows:
- Virtual, social gatherings for friends
- An alternative to a company quiz night
- Virtual awards ceremonies
- Birthdays and anniversaries
- New product launches...
"Thank you so much - it was brilliant! I wish we could have you every saturday! It was exactly the right tone and the magic was so impressive. It was all just a lot of fun and I could not have asked for more today. - I will be sure to let everyone know how fantastic you were."
"That was awesome! Thank you so much. You have the perfect balance of magic & charm. I am so grateful."
"I don't think I have smiled and laughed for so much and for so long in Lockdown!"

"What an amazing performance! Once again even virtually you had the team intrigued and they all thoroughly enjoyed it! The most engaging and impressive show.
You were EXTRAORDINARY! One day I am going to get you drunk and you can explain how you do it all.
"Nick is the real deal and one of the best on the circuit. Having seen Nick amaze and delight countless people over the years, as well as his amazing TV performance fooling Penn and Teller, it was a no brainer to hire him for a half-hour of virtual magic via Zoom as part of our staff Xmas party week. It was absolutely fantastic! Nick has an impressive professional camera set up, which means he can show things from different angles as well as controlling the show to highlight people he's interacting with. I was worried that the effect might be lost via video, but Nick has tailored his show to the medium perfectly, and all I can say is that we had gasps galore as he amazed and delighted my staff, and me!). Just brilliant. Hire him if you can (virtual or live). P.S I'm not being paid to write this"

"Thank you so much for the most spectacular, entertaining and wonderful show. It went down like a hit and you really elevated the staff zoom party to a “proper” party. Everyone was flabbergasted, entertained, they laughed and were amazed, and most of all; for 30 minutes only focussed on being entertained and having fun" - JW3
"It was, genuinely, the best virtual event I have attended".
