Christopher Howell’s interest in becoming a magician began when he was seven years old and saw David Copperfield perform at a local fair near his hometown in Michigan. That Christmas his parents gave Christopher a magic set and from that point on, his interest and skills in magic grew exponentially. At the age of thirteen Christopher performed his first show professionally. Throughout high school he developed and performed his first stage magician show in small Michigan theatres with his assistant Alison Bartlett.
When Christopher was seventeen years old his family moved to London, England and he went along to pursue a double-major degree in Theatre Arts and Studio Arts. In London Christopher continued to develop his magic acts, performing in public and private events. After University he began studying opera and for five years he trained (in London and Bologna, Italy).
Having decided to pursue magic instead, Christopher is now a full-time London magician who travels through the UK and abroad to present his work. Music is still an important part of his magic acts however; particularly in his cabaret and stage magic shows. A true performer whose medium is magic, Christopher is excited by how a ‘theatre bubble’ seems to form around those involved in the presentation, even with close up magic; how magic is the vehicle to move them to another place completely.
In 2002 he gained membership to the prestigious Magic Circle. In 2006 he co-created the stage magician variety act Amazing Norvil & Josehpine with dancer and acrobat Desiree Kongerod. Christopher also holds a diploma as a certified life coach and has created Project Illusions which uses magic to lead unique personal development workshops and speeches. Christopher speaks Italian and German and when he’s not working (and also when he is!) you’ll probably find him in Spain, Italy or Florida!
