NEVER before have I been to interview someone who has left me speechless and confused in equal measures.

“This is what’s good about close-up magic,” said Dave.
“You see stuff on the TV and you think it’s a camera trick. But you sit here in my living room and I can do stuff right in front of you.”
There’s no question that Dave, who was born and brought up in Wigan, has real talent, and it’s no wonder that the Magic Circle, which boasts only 1,500 members worldwide, recently accepted him into their fold.
