Parlour magic originated in the 19th century, when magicians were invited into homes to provide a private seating for a small audience.
Parlor magic is a show for more people than close-up magic but for less people than a stage show. These kind of shows come at a predetermined duration. Typically there is no stage and the magician usually stands at floor level. This means that smaller and less elaborate props are used during the show. It allows the performance to take place closer to the audience than when performing on a stage.
Parlour magic shows can take place in a living room, small hall or a medium size room in other venues. Usually the magic is performed waist up, allowing a better view for small group of people. This kind of show does not make use of more elaborate stage props and illusions so it is not usually ideal for a large audience.
This makes Parlour Magic a great choice to entertain a small group of people at home or in a small venue. With the set duration, people can sit down and enjoy the experience together. Besides that, Parlour Magic involves a lot of audience participation. Brian Role` holds a 1st Prize Award by winning the I.B.M. Ring 202’s Parlour Magic Competition..

How far must the audience be from the magician?
In most cases, the audience can be close, as long as the magician has enough space for the performance. They audience should be seated facing the magician, with the magician’s back to a background or wall in order to avoid distractions.

The duration of such shows is in the range of between thirty minutes to one hour. One-hour shows are usually suitable for varying age family audiences.
What do I need to prepare for the magician before the show?
Brian brings all the equipment o to carry out the show. Preferably the performance area is perfect in front of a backdrop or wall, with the audience in front of Brian. The audience can also sit in a semi-circle fashion, from side to side in Brian’s performance area. An electricity outlet close by is also. Keep these in mind and prepare a small table or chair nearby in case it is needed.
Does the magician need a stage?
There is no need for a stage for a parlor magic performance for audiences of 40 people or less. For a slightly larger audience a platform to increase visibility is always welcome but not necessary. All the magic performance is waist up. A stage would be ideal for larger audiences and venues where a complete Stage Magic Show is required.
