Magic success for Lewis

Friday 9 June 2017

Former Bedford College performing arts student Lewis Joss is now a fully-fledged member of the prestigious Magic Circle and full-time magician.

An Equity card-holding professional, Lewis has appeared on TV with the late Paul Daniels and now has his own website with a professional show reel.

“I am moving into corporate entertainment and family and official functions with close-up work,” said Lewis, who can demonstrate sleight of hand tricks at the drop of, well, a magician’s hat.

He also has a stage act broadly based on “cutting the lady in half” which is a staple of all great magic acts.

Still living in his home town of Kempston, Lewis can be seen locally at various events and recently won the Northamptonshire close-up Magician of the Year award.
