"The children at the Montessori thought Potty was very funny and a VERY good magician!" (the children at the Montessori School, Blackheath)

"My friends thought it was the best party they had been to" Isabella, 8, Lewes

For younger kids Potty's magic show party concentrates on slapstick comedy and professional silliness.....older kids love his magic party with "dangerous" magic tricks; and he shows magic that astonishes them as much as it amuses them! The magic Potty offers at childrens parties is always tailored to the age range of the kids present. Here you can see one of Potty's most often requested tricks, the incredible Flying Carpet

"Thank you for a most "Excellent" afternoon at ours, you are a wonderfully "Gifted Man".......You're a STAR! Take care and Thanks Big Time" (Carol, Neal, Daisymay, Mia, Hayward's Heath)

Magic Island is one of Potty's most popular shows, a swashbuckling pirate storytelling show, loaded with magic and including an appearance from the adorable Di the Dragon puppet. Referring to a big treasure map, the story tells of Potty's adventures as he tries to save baby dragon from the clutches of the evil Captain Loppylegs. Loads  of slapstick comedy, hilarious magic, the "Incredible Seasickness Cure" performed on one of the unsuspecting dads present, an enchanted treasure chest, and a chance for the Birthday Buccaneer to ride on a Flying Carpet! Perfect for 5th Birthday parties.


How to Be a Pirate and The Skull & Crossbones Cabaret are magic and puppet shows with lots of magical "sketches". The shows can be varied according to the ages of the kids, but both shows always involve a comedy slapstick introduction which gets all the kids reacting energetically to Potty's antics, a chance for some kids (or at Birthday parties, the Birthday kid) to help with some magic, a naughty puppet such as Marmite the Monkey, or perhaps Stinkey Winkey the Flatulent Rat. Then it's time for two or three more kids to get involved with some pirate shaaaarpshooting (a very magical interlude), or something similar, (older kids love Potty's "Soak the Pirate" game), one of the dads is often pressganged into becoming a "Human Puppet", then for younger kids it's time to make a pirate flag for the Captain, using the amazing "Pirate-thingumy-flag-a-bobba-watchamacallit" machine - whilst older kids enjoy the incredible "Treasure Game", which involves lots of fun and a very magical outcome with a treasure chest, two volunteers, and a £20 note. Potty has a vast repertoire of routines, so for repeat parties he can offer a completely different show.

This is just a taster, Potty has many other magic tricks and illusions. Party magic and puppetry, beautiful balloon models, magic games, silly songs, and a BIG helping of fun.....Potty the Pirate is the favourite magician for kids around sussex!
