Where did the magic begin?

Marco began his career in 1977 whilst he was running the back-stage bar at the celebrated Hammersmith Odeon (now known as the Apollo).  The bar was for the exclusive use of VIPs, stars and their guests and it was a drummer from one of the bands who sparked Marco’s enthusiasm for magic when he showed him a trick with a cigarette. “I thought the trick was fantastic! Once he’d taught me how to do it I was hooked. I enjoyed the art so much that, even from this small beginning, I made up my mind to learn more.”

Before long, Marco was entertaining the celebrities that came into the bar, constantly honing his new found skills and building a reputation for himself amongst the glitterati – so much so that he was soon being hired by these artists and their managements to perform at their private parties and functions.

Marco turned professional in 1986 and is in constant demand as both an  artist and consultant, working all over Europe and beyond.   He has developed tricks and illusions – demonstrating techniques at magic conventions and is an associate of the prestigious ‘International Magic’ organisation.

Marco has appeared on all five terrestrial television channels and a selection of well known clients for whom he has performed can be found on his ’showcase’ page.
