Kyle Summers International Close up Magician

Contemporary magician Kyle Summers is one of the most in-demand close up magicians in the UK. He moved to England in 1997, having originated from California.

Kyle says: “As a kid, I was always into superheroes Spiderman, the Incredible Hulk, Superman, you name it. I was ‘super-powers’ crazy. Actually, nothing’s changed there. It was my fascination with people being able to do things that they’re not meant to be able to do that drew me to becoming a magician. It is, after all, the only chance any of us are going to get to see even the illusion of something super-normal.

Opportunities drew me into the acting world, but close up magic always pulled me back again. There is nothing like being a close up magician in the whole sphere of entertainment. To perform an effect for someone that appears to breach the laws of nature to see that jaw-dropped look of astonishment on someone’s face, it’s a rush and a thrill that acting could never give to me. When it’s close-up table magic rather than on stage there is no substitute. It’s uncompromising. It’s right before your eyes and every time I go to work I go to a party your party. What more could anyone ask? This is fun and to me, fun is more important than anything else and being a close up magician gave me that.”
