Close-up Magic Show
Close-up magic is the intimate brand of prestidigitation where miracles occur just inches in front of spectators. This type of entertainment is generally comprised of performers who specialize in a particular type of close-up magic, such as playing cards, coins, cups and balls, thimbles. ropes, silk handkerchiefs, or other small items. Shoot Ogawa is unique as he is a master of all of these. His close-up magic is extraordinarily flexible and adaptable for any function. It can be used as an excellent icebreaker and helps generate a fun, collegial atmosphere.
Close-up magic is ideally suited to corporate hospitality, wedding receptions, trade shows/product launches, birthday parties and weddings.
Stage Magic Show
When most people think of “stage show,” they think of the typical illusion act populated by female assistants who are levitated, sawed in half, vanished, and decapitated. Shoot Ogawa, however, believes that today’s audiences want something different – impactful magic of a type that they have never seen before. Audiences want to laugh, to be amazed, and to be involved in the show. Shoot uses members of his audience as his assistants, and they love every second. His magic props are simple: rope, cards, handkerchiefs, coins, and the like… but what he does with them leaves his audience spellbound. His unique humor has the audiences rolling in the aisles in between bouts of amazement, and this combination makes him one of magic’s most sought after entertainers.
His stage magic show is ideal for corporate functions, private parties, cruises, or any special event.

Close-up magic suits this number of guests well, often with a small show after dinner.
50 to 120 Guests
Walk-around magic during a cocktail reception is an ideal way to get your guests in the mood for the evening's entertainment. Additional close-up magic is ideal for amazing guests throughout the dinner, and can be followed by a small after dinner cabaret if further entertainment is required.
Shoot recommends the walk-around/close-up combination of performances outlined above, and to guarantee that all guests are entertained, he is able to book, on your behalf, other magicians as needed. An after-dinner cabaret or illusion show would also suit an event of this size
