Personalised magic for Bride and Groom -Yorkshire Wedding Magician - Oliver Parker

Professional Entertainer Close Up Magician & B-Boy (Breakdancer)

People call Oliver @funprovider for a reason!

Just check out his magic and breakdancing over the last decade…

Why do you do magic?

I love making people happy, I’m a giver 😉

I mostly do this through magic, but I also used to breakdance professionally, facilitate team building rhythm and drumming activities with my father’s business, offer health & fitness advice, enjoy learning about photography and have a strange obsession with Iceland

My Journey

Age 7

My grandad and family, none of whom were magicians, introduced me to simple card tricks, children’s magic sets and magic books from about the age of 7 and supported my journey to award winning success and professional performances whilst still in school…

Age 11

Entertaining others is my passion and what makes me happy –  I had this realisation from about the age of 11 when I would perform street magic in my local town and every break time for pupils and teachers at my high school. I’ve never wanted to do a ‘real’ job since! 

Age 12

I received a massive confidence boost and reassurance that my relentless hours of hard work and practise was paying off during my junior magician years when I won the first ever competition I entered: Under 18’s Close-up Entertainer of the Year with a delightful prize of £200.
More awards and recognition soon followed from well respected members of The Magic Circle, The Northern Magic Circle, The Leeds Magic Circle and The Bradford Magic Circle – blowing people away in both Close-Up Magic competitions and Stage Magic competitions…

Age 14

Aside from relative’s family Birthday parties and charity events – I was hired for my first professional well paid event by Asda at just 14 – performing close up magic around the Holt Park, Leeds store for a Harry Potter book launch day.

Age 16

At the age of 16 I realised I loved the ability to connect with my audiences on a personal level, interacting with them face to face and experiencing their reactions as I made miracles happen right under their noses – this is when I decided to specialise in performing close up magic with everyday items such as money, playing cards, jewelry etc. and leave the out-dated traditional cheesy stage magic props behind. 

Age 18

As soon as I left 6th Form, I registered as self-employed and tried to take over Leeds… with a pack of cards. 

Age 26

It had been 10 years since entering my last magic competition so I decided to enter the Leeds Magic Circle – Close Up Magician competition… winning 1st place against some great Leeds magicians both young and old! (And again the year after!)

Now – Age 30

I now travel the world and am hired to entertain at around 200 events, media appearances and consultations per year – including several major corporate clients, but also lots of special individuals whose beautiful wedding days I’ve shared, Birthdays I’ve contributed to and soaked up far more nightlife than one individual should be able to handle!  

After well over 20 years of practising, performing, competing and perfecting my art of close up magic, I can tell you with 99.3% certainty that:

People love good magic…

And I love sharing my magic with people!

    positive review  Wow, what a guy!! We used Oliver Parker as the magician at our wedding last weekend at The Barns, East Yorkshire after meeting him at a wedding fair at York Racecourse a couple of years ago. Oliver’s magic is out of this world, so many guests have commented on his outstanding talent. He is so friendly, and confident in what he does. He did his best to ensure all guests were treated to a trick and each and every guest was left amazed. He even added a few special tricks in for the bride and groom to make it more personalised!! We highly recommend Oliver!!!

2020 has been a challenging year for us all and of course, the annual corporate Christmas party had to go digital this year. We were looking for something super entertaining and different to a usual Zoom call. We hired Oliver and he was just incredible. Really engaged the team, and was really personable and what an incredible skill he has. The slight of hand and up close tricks were just amazing. The team were in awe, cheering and laughing - totally stunned at how he was managing to pull the tricks off and so well. Would highly recommend him for any event. And we hope to get him back for a show in 2021 but this time, face to face! Thanks Oliver!

From start to finish (and excusing the pun!), Oliver was simply magical! We had Oliver at our wedding - he was engaging, took the time to make sure everyone had chance to experience his magic and really completed our special day for both us and our guests. We would highly recommend Oliver for any event - professional throughout and his talent is just simply amazing!
