Magician & Hypnotist Jonathan Royle, aged 41 of Spotland, Rochdale, Greater Manchester, last night, Tuesday 11th October 2016, was awarded the Cabaret
Magic Trophy in the annual Comedy & Cabaret Magic Competition at England’s
third oldest Magical Society & Club, namely Manchester’s Order of the Magi.
In the picture above Jonathan who was born into a showbiz family whilst travelling
with Gandey’s Circus and made his stage debut aged 3 as Flap The Clown, can be
seen being awarded the trophy by another Rochdale Resident, current order of the
Magi club president Alan Johnston who resides close to Highfield Hospital.
His Award Winning Routine at The New Irish Heritage Centre in Manchester, started with the amazing Production of a Four Foot long sweeping brush from nowhere, A heavy bowling ball appearing from an empty bag and even a Bowling Pin being produced from an impossibly small package.
Royle then made a bottle of Whiskey Disappear, before he produced a Bottle of Wine from out of thin air whilst teaching the audience how to recite the Alphabet Backwards, proved that he had predicted what random price an audience member would decide his suit had cost and even made several large boxes of flowers appear to a comical story about his daughter Ashleigh.
It was a fast paced 15 minutes of high impact visual Magic & Illusion, which won
the Cabaret Competition Trophy 2016 for Royle, whilst the Comedy Trophy was
won by Royton Based Magician Mike Sharples who is pictured below.
Royle who was born plain Alex William Smith and attended both St. Lukes Primary
and also Siddal Moor High Schools in Heywood performed his first magic aged 4
on the Golden Mile in Blackpool when helping his Showbiz Father Tizzy the Clown to
perform a Head Guillotine Illusion as part of the Paul Daniels Magic Museum Exhibition
He has performed his own unique brand of Magic, Illusion and Comedy Mind Control
and Hypnosis all over the World and has even been fortunate enough to have made
his own Six Part European Television Series “Life in The Bus Lane” which can now
be watched Free of Charge online via his website at:
Royle regularly advises Famous Magicians & Mind Readers around the World on
how to improve their performances, he has 100’s of training products on sale from
Magic Shops around the world teaching his own original routines and is very much
looking forward to Monday 19th June 2017 when he is engaged to Lecture to his fellow
Magicians at the World Famous Magic Circle in London.
