COMEDY MAGIC SHOW
Billy Kidd’s Comedy Magic Show can be played for 20 people to hundreds of people. A high energetic show combined with mind reading, a hilarious escape based on Houdini’s Straight Jacket, lot of audience participation and one of the oldest magic tricks in the world. The show can play in a Banquet type room, Cabaret setting, or Stage. Watch as Billy turns paper to money, finds a card while dangling from a trapeze, or reads your mind in unexpected ways! A show for all ages designed to make you laugh and be amazed.
CLOSE UP MAGIC
With this type of show the magic happens in the palm of the spectators hands..literally. Walk around or sometimes known as Close-up magic works best for smaller groups of people in an intimate setting. Billy’s skill with sleight of hand is to work smaller groups of people at different times creating an atmosphere that allows your guests to interact with each other and have a similar experience to talk about afterwards. Whether it’s rotating from group to group at a corporate event or roving table to table at a dinner function the close-up magic that Billy provides will break the ice easily into a fun, interactive, and mind boggling night out.
Billy Kidd can also take her magic to any festival or street event and be sure to gather a crowd and entertain! From the famous cups and balls to her escape show she has travelled the world and has appeared at many international festivals including: Portugal’s Street Magic Fest, Edmonton Fringe Fest, London Earl Court Fest, Art Deco in Miami and many more….

“We booked Billy Kidd for our street festival VARIETÈGATAN in Gothenburg Sweden last summer. Not only is she a great performer with a fantastic act. She is also a very giving and lovely person that really helped making sure that everyone (also the crew) was having a good time. We would not hesitate a second to book her again for other events.”
Warm regards, Johan Wellton CEO, Varietégatan
“Small in size but gigantic in energy, creativity and expression, Billy is one of my favourite magicians to work with. She is adventurous and bold and never flinched when the camera required her to do the same thing again and again without loosing passion and focus. She is fascinating to watch and brings across an unusual mixture of innocence and temptation, simplicity and complexity. When Billy performs her magic tricks, she talks smoothy while her hands and body act swiftly. Her acts are unusual and often surprising to the mesmerized audience. Having hand-picked Billy Kidd as the lead magician in 2 of my short films, I am always impressed by her professional demeanour, focused energy, ability to come up with different solutions and her zen-like patience.”
Eva Colmers, No Problem Productions
“Billy Kidd is an amazing performer who wowed audiences at our Christmas fundraiser. She was a highlight of the evening, performing her close-up magic for onlookers. I really appreciated her professionalism, her willingness to adapt to any performance situation that was given to her, and the sheer quality of the show she gave us. She’s a Gem!”
Kristi Hansen, Maggie Tree
“Her Straightjacket escape being an impressive finale to what was a charismatic, original performance.”
Dereck Smith, The Stage UK
“Billy Kidd toured our head office turning normally quiet office people into amused mystified people! Her comedy, personality and up close magic skills impressed the small groups she was working with while the show she put on at the end to a much bigger crowd was amazing. Although quite how she knew I had the 10 of clubs in my head still escapes me…”
Ian Simpson, Telefonica O2 Uk Limited
“It’s true to say that I really liked the idea of a “chick performing tricks” at my party, Very impressive!! Billy arrived promptly on the night and I knew immediately she was going to be a big hit. She was utterly charming, very witty and incredibly talented. She amazed and delighted different groups of friends with her sleight of hand; it was great to see so many people laughing and enjoying her work. Expressions of total surprise, astonishment, disbelief and pure joy and laughter … how DOES she do it? I would love to see Billy again and would recommend her 100%. This is one chick that won’t let you down – Absolutely fantastic.”
“Billy, I just wanted to drop you a note to express my thanks for such a great show on Saturday. As you know we had a wide range of people attend the party and I wanted to complement you on working the varying age groups so well. Your show went down exceptionally well with each of the differing adult, family and children groups, so much so that my 8 year old nephew Ben now has decided his career as a professional footballer is history and instead he’s now determined to be a magician!! Great job, thanks very much”
