Felix's table magic, also known as close-up magic, amazes from up close

Felix Gauger performs miracles in the hands of guests

Table magic is often referred to as close-up magic. It is particularly powerful because the performer moves from group to group, entertaining guests individually at their tables. This allows the audience to be close to the magic and experience it up close.

Close-up magic brings the art and fun right to the guests. With incredible effects, the magic even happens in the hands of the audience. With this personalised magic, your guests are the centre of attention and each guest gets their own individual show.

Felix's close-up magic is particularly powerful as he combines magic with pickpocketing, mentalism and lots of gags.

Perhaps the most fascinating form of magic, Felix's closeness to the audience allows him to interact directly with them, responding spontaneously to his guests.

Felix Gauger blends into the crowd, bridging waiting times, spreading good humour and getting your guests talking. Close-up magic can be performed almost anywhere as no large props are required. Duration depends on the number of people in the audience and can range from 45 minutes to several hours over the course of the evening. Felix carries everything with him and therefore needs very few props to make the magic happen. He mix and mingles with the audience and wows even the most sceptical guests.

The Close Up is most often booked as a walking act, where the magician moves from group to group. However, it is also possible for Felix to stand at one table and have guests walk by to experience the magic.

Why you should ask Felix Gauger for your event. Here are some important FAQs

For example, if it's your wedding reception or a smaller corporate event with about 60-80 people, Felix will bring everything so you don't have to worry about anything. Felix will bring his own equipment, a small table and, if necessary, a sound system with mics. This ensures that your guests can hear everything, the magician has excellent sound, and they can see everything clearly. So you don't have to worry about anything except the location with a small open space. Ideally, this should not be in the middle of the room, but on one of the narrow sides. This will ensure that everyone can see well and enjoy the show to the full. For large galas, a technical company usually provides the sound, lighting, and stage equipment. A sound engineer will be in charge of the sound and will ensure a clear sound experience. A sound check before the event is recommended.

Magic is a form of entertainment. It uses the principles of trickery to enchant guests. However, it has nothing to do with any kind of fortune telling, esoteric events, runes, divining rods, chakra events or similar absurd things. This may sound obvious, but it is not taken for granted in all cultures. The magician has already performed magic in other cultures and first had to make it clear that these are just tricks, a means to an end of good entertainment. Felix cannot really stop time, travel through space and time, or do any of the other things he claims to do on stage to make the audience think.

Fortunately, this has rarely happened so far. However, if a gig is cancelled due to illness, Felix will provide an equivalent replacement. He has a huge network of artists at his disposal, is in regular contact with his colleagues and, if the worst comes to the worst, has a replacement at the ready - that's a promise!

Sure, or you steal some stamps and your boss makes you disappear. No, seriously: Felix is also happy to develop a customized show concept for you. He has already magically presented company products, conjured up the core messages of a corporate brand or provided the necessary entertainment with product integration for IT launches. Just reach out to discuss your needs.

Yes, Felix does not perform a purely musical act, as his show comes to life through interaction with the audience. Felix talks and entertains, amuses and inspires with his charming way of involving the audience. It's not just about the magic effects. It's about the whole package of humorous entertainment and magical illusions.

Good entertainment creates a lasting memory for your guests, who will remember it for a long time to come. In order to make you a suitable offer, Felix needs to know the date, location, number of people and the desired program.

"There is hardly anything in this world that someone can't make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and people who are only guided by price become the fair prey of such people.
It is unwise to pay too much, but it is even worse to pay too little. If you pay too much, you lose some money, that's all. If, on the other hand, you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the purchased item cannot fulfill its intended purpose. The law of economics forbids getting a lot of value for little money. If you accept the lowest offer, you have to add something for the risk you are taking. And if you do that, you will have enough money to pay for something better." (John Ruskin, English social reformer, 1819-1900)
