Leeds Magician – Oliver Parker – Break The Ice & Blow Their Minds

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 mother, 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: MagicTricks.co.uk 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!)

Age 30

I spent my 20s travelling the world and building up my business 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!  

Age 31

Despite starting 2020 with a trip of a lifetime working in Thailand with colleagues and sharing incredible new magical ideas, Covid-19 quickly swept the world, so on the day of the first lockdown I made a break for the border and spent most of the pandemic with my girlfriend in Germany…

Thankfully I was able to continue my work with the Teenage Cancer Unit at LGI hospital and other clients like Headway by creating 2 different Virtual Magic Shows & Workshops via Zoom as well as producing magical video content for clients such as St James’s Place Wealth Management so that people could still be blown away by my magic… but through video instead!

Now

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  A brilliantly talented and engaging young magician. He did tricks that completely flummoxed everyone and left us open mouthed in amazement. When the magic is this close up you have to be very skilful and confident to pull it off. Oliver has super talent in spades...and diamonds...and hearts and clubs!

    positive review  We hired Oliver for our annual company Charity Ball this year, and he was great. He tailored everything to the fact that this is quite a corporate event (referencing our vendor sponsors throughout for example) while still maintaining a fun and light-hearted patter with guests. He was amazing, and the feedback we received about his work from our guests was great. We would definitely recommend Oliver without hesitation.

Oliver was a surprise visitor at my 50th celebration last weekend. He had us bewildered and laughing in equal measures. No idea how he does the tricks but we loved it. He even slowed down the tricks so we could see, but we couldn't!!! Brilliant entertainment, thanks Oliver 👍

We had Ollie for our Work Christmas Party and he was fabulous...even though it was via Zoom it didn't take away any of the magic and the whole team were truly amazed. Ollie was very entertaining and the team were still singing his praises the morning after.We would highly recommend him for Zoom parties and once normality resumes, for all those face to face experiences!!Thanks for thoroughly entertaining us Ollie!
