2014-08-11 09:56:12 - Slightly Unusual are one of the most well know illusion acts in the UK. They have appeared on TV numerous times and have won several awards including winning Brit Idol in 2012. Although they operate mainly in the corporate and wedding sectors, they also tour their show throughout the UK appearing at theatres and holiday parks nationwide.
As well as large scale stage shows Slightly Unusual also provide close up magic, strolling magic and table magic. In fact they are the current British Magical Society Close Up Magicians of the Year and Parlour Magicians of the Year. Due to the excessive demand for close up magic Slightly Unusual have just added one of the top close up magicians in the UK to their team - Tom Mullenger.
"Tom is the perfect fit for our company," says Russell Leeds, Managing Director of Slightly Unusual Ltd. "His style is completely unique and unlike anything we have been able to offer until now. In fact 'Slightly Unusual' is the perfect way to describe Tom's act," he continues.
Tom's style is
very dark. Whilst most magicians will use props such as cards, coins and rope Tom uses items such as needles, razor blades and broken glass. This style of magic is called Bizarre Magic. However unlike most performers in this genre, Tom's natural comic timing and interpersonal skills mean that his performances are entertaining as well as shocking.
"We are very lucky to have Tom on board," says Sarah Petty, Operations Director at Slightly Unusual Ltd. "His signature piece where he takes a real needle and pushes it through his hand has to be seen to be believed!" she continues.
Obviously Tom is more than capable at performing the more traditional style of close up magic but the directors of Slightly Unusual are very excited with the direction the company can move forward in with Tom on board. One things for sure, even with how dark Tom's style can be, the future for Slightly Unusual is very bright indeed!
