After graduating with an Engineering degree in Edinburgh, he has been a full time professional for just over 10 years now. (He hasn’t used his degree… to his Mum & Dad’s delight.)
He’s written and starred in 10 successful Edinburgh Fringe Shows, demonstrated in the world famous Hamley’s Toy Shop, and worked all over the world in some of the nicest venues for the most exclusive clients.
His accolades include winning, ‘The John Ramsey Rose Bowl’ for The Best Close-up effect in Scotland, WINNER of ‘Scottish Close-Up Magician Of The Year’, the ‘International Brotherhood of Magicians British Ring Close-Up Champion’, and the ‘FRINGE WORLD Weekly Comedy Award Winner’ in Australia.
Elliot is an all rounder. He has a wealth of knowledge on weddings and corporate events, cabaret and stage performance, and also Fringe Festivals around the world.
The lecture itself combines Elliot’s love of visual, sleight-of-hand magic, with his own unique fast paced style. He has been the resident magician in one of the top nightclub/bars in Edinburgh for 7 years and has also worked on and off stage at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for the past 13 years.
This lecture has something for everyone, be it commercial close-up magic, comedy stage magic, family entertainment, impromptu mind reading, or just something to ‘play with’.

“Elliot’s lecture at The LWMS on Wednesday was a very successful night. His professional delivery and explanations kept a very busy room intrigued and entertained for the whole evening.“

“I really think that this is a super commercial trick and this really does belong in the same set as all the things we consider Classics in magic, like the ambitious card, coins across, double cross, the Omni deck, card to wallet, card to mouth, all these things that magicians do… this is just as strong and as commercial as all of them.”
