The Corporate Act

Welcome to this secret page, where I'll give you a brief insight into what kind of material I perform at corporate events. Fortunately, my act has been tried at tested at 100's of Corporate events, and has also been featured everywhere from The Late Late Show, to The Saturday Night Show. I can promise with absolute confidence that all of your guests, young and old, will love my unique brand of Magic & Mind Reading, and will rave about the things they saw for months afterwards. You can safely and reliably trust me to add the *WOW* factor to your next important company event -  something that's missing from so many 'normal' company events these days. Why have an ordinary event, when you can have an extraordinary one instead!?

 

Here are some things your guests can expect to see when you book me for your Corporate Event.

 

Rings

During my act, I try to borrow personal items from guests as often as possible. Most often, I borrow their Wedding rings and make them disappear! This creates space for some great moments of comedy with your guests. But, before the panic sets in, the ring miraculously reappears somewhere impossible - sometimes in a sealed envelope inside my wallet, sometimes in a locked box in my pocket, and sometimes, it reappears securely looped onto my car keys. You can see my performing this piece with Maura Devane on RTE's 'Today' in the video below, along with some money magic as well.

 

Sleight of Hand

I wouldn't be much of a Magician if I didn't do the occasional 'Card Trick'. But please, forget what you may have seen your uncle or grandad do when you were a kid, and forget about that friend who knows one simple 'trick' that you saw them do in a bar once! This is a world class level of sleight of hand with playing cards, the likes of which your guests will have never seen before. Signed cards will vanish and reappear in impossible places, cards that are torn up will restore themselves in between your guests closed hands, and decks of cards will sometimes even turn into a block of solid perspex glass...as you'll see in one of the two videos below. The cool thing about my card tricks is that your guests will keep their signed card as a souvenir in their wallet for weeks afterwards. I can genuinely say that I've met some of the same people at different events, and often times they'll show me that they have still kept the card they signed when they met me last! 

 

Mentalism

Mentalism is a bit like mind-reading! The only difference is that I completely and openly admit that I posses zero Psychic skill whatsoever. However, over the course of my career, I've developed some very tight and reliable skills in body language reading, micro expressions and even poker tells. This lets me accomplish feats that look, and feel like real mind reading! I can figure out the name of the person you shared your first kiss with, I can predict what kind of choices your boss will make, and I can even figure out the PIN codes to your colleague's credit cards, as you'll see me do in the videos with Ryan Tubridy on The Late Late Show, and Amanda Brunker on RTE's Today below. This is a very unique and rare type of entertainment, and with the rise of performers like Derren Brown and Keith Barry, it is extremely popular at Corporate Events. Women, especially, love taking on the challenge of having their minds read, and it leaves a lot of room for comedy and fun in between each revelation.

 

Fire

Everybody loves some Special Effects, and my act packs a few surprise punches when your guests least expect it! The magic I perform with bursts of fire is 100% safe (it's only ever performed in a controlled environment indoors), and visually stunning. Not only that, but it's a huge attention grabber in packed reception room of guests enjoying some Champagne and beers. Cards will burst into flames, rings will vanish in flashes of fire and my own business cards will momentarily combust before I hand them out to guests as souvenirs. Below, you'll see me performing a piece with fire and cards for Dáithi on RTE's Today, and you'll catch a split second of me performing my finale-fire piece  in Jameson's latest commercial.

Recent Reviews

We invited Rua to our Google Christmas Party and his show was really appreciated from all the people. We collected great feedback from all the participant. He knows what his doing. He knows how to entertain and he know how handle "difficult" location (we were in a club, many people, dark light and loud music) Probably the best I personally have ever seen.

I've booked Rua for a number of corporate events and will be booking him again. He is an absolutely fantastic magician; not only for his insane talent but his professionalism and friendliness both at and around the events as well. He's always a hit with guests, his communication is always on point and he is extremely reliable. I've hired other acts before but non have topped Rua. He is a must have!
