New Interview Incoming - “Richard Jones”

The site runs an occasional series, interviewing artists about their work.

I am excited to reveal that I have been working on a new interview with Richard Jones. It will be posted very soon on Friday the 19th of February.

Richard is a regular performer on TV, and is the only magician to win Britain’s Got Talent in 2016.

A World-Class Celebrity Magician who can be seen entertaining at Corporate Events, Royal Parties and in Theatres regularly all around the world.


Richard has had sold out UK Tours, headlined the West End and is one of the most highly viewed entertainers on TV globally.


As well as being a leading TV Magician, he is also the UK’s most in demand Corporate Entertainer and an Ambassador of The British Army.


Richard has been awarded status of ‘Member of The Inner Magic Circle’ with Gold Star, the most prestigious honour among magicians.

I am looking forward to sharing my chat with Richard. In the meantime, I have posted my review of his online show that I attended in November 2020 below.

Richard Jones- Online Show Review

On booking my tickets, I received a couple of email confirmations via Ticket Source. The price for a 40 minute show is very reasonable and you can have as many family around your screen as you like.


A confirmation and reminder email was also sent prior to the show with log on details. The show was via Zoom.

Once signed in for the show, music played with the appropriate lyrics “I’ve got the magic in me” and a slide of Richard.

The show was intimate, with Richard chatting to all audience members and allowing everyone to interact and join in with the magic. He makes a point of working through all the Zoom audience screens, so make sure your camera is on.

I like to keep these show reviews spoiler free, as you need to experience the shows for yourself. However, what is safe to say is that the show includes a great video montage and lots of effects that Richard works his way through. As you would expect from a BGT winner, a very professional show from an established magician.

He connects well with his audience and confidently talks, chats and performs. His studio set for the performance is my favorite for any of the Zoom shows that I have watched. A very professional setting and I love the posters on display of some great artists in this field.

The show is ideal for families and ages were mixed from children relaxing before bed to adults having a glass of wine.


Effects performed are varied and Richard's style covers card magic, mentalism and sleight of hand. A flawless performance and it was good to see him enjoying the opportunity to perform.


Narration and story telling throughout the act is important to Richard and an enjoyable part of the show. It brings a lot of the magic to life and gives a reason why a particular magic effect is being performed.

For any fans of magic or Richard, you need to book to see his show. I will also definitely book the forthcoming Christmas show and review. Recommended.


It should be noted that for any collectors of magic, Richard does sell signed merchandise that includes posters of his tours. A great addition to my collection.


Thanks to Richard for the amazing show. Lets hope for the opportunity for live theatre shows again soon.
