Close-up magic meets cabaret next, with magic
and patter merchant Danny Lee Grew. This young man has fast and dextrous hands and some lovely moments of clever deflection. A performance here, possibly with universal appeal for this brand new solo comedy attraction.
Mark Ritchie - UK Cabaret Magazine
Danny Lee Grew turned a £5.00 note into a £50.00 note and showed some impressive ring-and-rope moves. The plethora of, at times, rather edgy patter garnered some big laughs from his audience. For his finale, a torn card reappeared inside an orange. It was thoroughly entertaining whatever was supposed to have happened.

Hilarious and talented
Dave Pilkington accents Project Manager
What a great night, everyone enjoyed the magic and the humour. The best act we have had in Hooley social in last few years.
Will defiantly book again. Thank you Danny for a great night, everyone loved it.

Top Qualities: Great Results, High Integrity, Creative
Danny is a absolute joy to hire, he is fun friendly and fantastic at what he does. We have hired him as an entertainment service, with his Magic show to thrill and delight members of all ages of service users at our events especially children and the elderly. His performance is amazing and we have watched grow from strength to strength over the past two years and his ability to entertain, thrill and hold the attention of an audience is second to none. We will always hire him for future events and anyone who hires him in the future will certainly not be disappointed.
Nicola BarrattVice Chair Hub Management & Social Committee
Danny is a very dedicated and accomplished magician. When he worked for me in Hamley's (Londons largest toy shop) he was an excellent team leader and regularly blew away both other staff and customers. I have no doubt that Danny will be one of London's leading lights in Magic. He always impresses and astounds whilst being incredibly polite and respectful. I can't recommend him highly enough.
Quentin JohnsFormer International Sales Manager of Marvin's Magic
Danny has performed for NickJackHE on various different occasions, from children's birthdays to a room full of adults. I can't fault him one bit. Not only does his magic change a room of silence to a room full of laughter, but his personality while performing is one of the best I've ever seen. Thank you Danny for everything you've done for us.
That was excellent! It's not easy to perform for kids, and when you have the camera lens dividing you and your audience it's even a bigger challenge, and yet I think you did fantastic job!
When I see Danny Grew, I see a very successful and talented man. However, what makes him more unique, is how he is still down to earth with so much talent! He is extremely talented and I would even go that far to say that I wish I could do magic with Danny. But I'm not that good enough and I will never reach to his level.
Whenever we ask him to do a charity event by NickJackHE, he is always up for it and does his absolute best to help out and give people a show that they will never forget!
Nick PearmainStand-up comedian, author and radio presenter
The magic act by Danny Lee Grew creased me up and a great performance as always.
Both children and adults who were present had a great time. They absolutely enjoyed the show, even our year 6 students who were at first a bit sceptical, had raving reviews for you after the show.
Zina AlexanderWindsor Primary School, London
I enjoyed the show and cannot fault it!
Danny was absolutely brilliant - the children were all engaged and laughed the whole way through. Getting the children involved too was great because they felt a part of it.
Do let Danny know that it was an amazing performance: engaging, fun and entertaining. I had a lot of fun and from the children's response of laughter and squealing as well as the looks of amazement I can only conclude that they had fun too!!!
Teachers of Calverton Primary School
I would just like to say a huge thank you for coming to do a fantastic magician show for our young reception children. They had an absolutely amazing time, they were very engaged and responsive to all of the tricks and had a great time.
The tricks performed were exciting, funny and engaging for children. The children who participated in the tricks were very keen and fascinated. It was very enticing and humorous. A great morning!
Children quoted: "it was fabulous when the red ribbon came out from the shoe".
The children and staff really enjoyed this experience. We hope to work with you again. Well done.
Sabana MoosaMaryland Primary School

Danny Grew has been a part of the Marvin’s Magic in store demonstration team for more than 5 years now. Throughout this time, Danny has proven himself to be one of our most entertaining, energetic, and hard working demonstrators.
Danny’s uniquely bubbly personality permeates every single one of his demonstrations, and leaves his spectators with no choice but to smile. He is incredibly reliable and a pleasure to work with.
