And for those interested in the kinds of Card Magic Tricks that Royle performed last night
take a look at this short video of him performing just a few of his favorite effects.

Jonathan was born whilst his parents were travelling with Gandey’s Circus and he made his Stage Debut aged 3 as Flap The Clown.

Aged 4 he appeared alongside his dad “Tizzy the Clown” on Blackpool’s Golden Mile helping to present a Neck Guillotine Illusion whereby a large blade penetrated a persons neck without harm.

This was an outdoor attraction to entice people to come inside The Paul Daniels Magic Museum and was the first time (of many) that Royle met Paul Daniels over the years.

By the time his age had hit double figures, Royle in his former stage name of Alex-LeRoy was performing Large Stage Illusions such as impaling his assistant with Swords and Producing Doves from Mid air…

**On 27th September 2016, Having attended the Magic Circle the previous Monday night, I was booked by Daryl Rose to present my Magic & Mentalism Lecture at The World Famous Magic Circle on Monday 19th June 2017… I am as you can imagine very excited and proud to have been asked to Lecture at this  Prestigious Magic Club.

I also will probably join the Magic Circle during 2017 as my interest in Magic has now
grown once again and I am seeking out more Magical Performance Opportunities!

_________________________________________________________________________

**On Friday 2nd December 2016 (following emails since 25th Nov) I spoke on the phone with Tom Hutton a researcher from Britian’s Got Talent, following this we have spoken numerous times and I have now been assigned a “Senior Researcher” who is commuicating between me and the Producers.  As a Result of this, at the time of typing this Monday 27th December I was told on Christmas Eve that The Producers Love my Act (which they have seen on video) and that it is most likely I will be asked to perform before the Celebrity Judges (which would be filmed for broadcast on TV) during either January of February 2017…

So with any luck “Psychic Belly Button Reading” and “Navel-Gazing Mind Reading” are about to go massive during 2017…

And of course this:

 


_________________________________________________________________________

Yes indeed and those examples of course don’t make any mention of the people whose lives I have helped to change for the better with my “Complete Mind Therapy” (CMT) and Mind Emotion Liberation Techniques (MELT) treatments or the people who I have entertained and brought joy and amazement to at the Private Events I’ve performed at during the course of the year…

Jonathan Royle Being Awarded the Cabaret Magic Trophy 2016 by Order of the Magi President Alan Johnston

Jonathan Royle Being Awarded the Cabaret Magic Trophy 2016 by Order of the Magi President Alan Johnston. Both Are Residents of Rochdale.

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
show.

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:

http://www.magicalguru.com/tv-shows/

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.
