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.
