This young man has fast and dextrous hands and some lovely moments of clever deflection

AN EXTENDED THANK YOU
I would just like to say a huge thank you to Aaron Lissimore of AJL Theatrical Ltd and Rob Mitchell-Gears of the West Cliff Theatre for having me perform in The Summer Show 2018.
I have been coming to the West Cliff Theatre in Clacton on Sea, particularly The Summer Show, every year for the past 15 years, so to be part of the longest running continuous summer variety show in Britain has been a dream come true.
The entire cast and crew have been incredible and I am so impressed with the passion and professionalism of everyone involved!
Thank you for keeping summer variety ALIVE!
Check out The Christmas Show at the West Cliff Theatre too! Produced by the same producers of The Summer Show. https://www.westcliffclacton.co.uk/livemusic/the-christmas-show-2018/#more-8509

ABOUT DANNY LEE GREW
Did you know, that top magician Danny Lee Grew has performed for over 1 MILLION people worldwide, on stage, TV and even on the radio.
The Magic Circle think he is ‘hilarious’, and in 2016, the president of The Magic Circle Scott Penrose promoted Danny Lee Grew to AIMC (Associate Membership of The Inner Magic Circle with Silver Star for performance – this is the highest level obtainable by performance examination). Also that year, Danny was the runner up in The Magic Circle’s Close Up Magician of the Year.
Danny Lee Grew has performed his unique and exciting magic all over the world, from America, France, Spain and Kuwait, as well as all over the UK in prestige venues including Her Majesty’s Theatre in London’s West End and the Olympic Stadium in Stratford (April 2012 – the first entertainer to perform there).
In 2018, Danny performed his family magic show Miraculous Magic at the Brighton Fringe Festival and in sold out theatres around the UK. During August, he performed in The Summer Show at the West Cliff Theatre in Clacton, the longest running summer show in Britain. Danny has also finished filming some exciting TV projects including portraying Adam Goldberg in The Real Stories of The Social Network, a ITV documentary about Facebook.
Last Christmas (2017), Danny made his pantomime debut playing Dick Whittington alongside The Chase’s Mark Labbett (The Beast) and legendary comedian Jimmy Cricket for Anton Benson Productions.
As well as performing for audiences worldwide, Danny has also entertained international royalty, and at high profile events where the likes of David Beckham, Pink, Chris Hemsworth and the West Ham United football team have all enjoyed Danny’s magic.

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
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... 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
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!
