Clarke Aldridge-Magician Extraordinaire

About Clarke Aldridge

Clarke became interested in the art of magic at the very young age of 13. He invested in some magic props and lessons and caught the ‘close-up’ bug. Practicing every day, learning magic was as much fun as performing it. Tom Craven then of Auburndale, Florida, gave Clarke some very helpful advice in close-up/sleight-of-hand magic. Tom became a very big influence in Clarke’s life, teaching him to practice each and every effect until it is perfect! After months of diligent practice, he began performing for the public.

From an original ten minute magic act, he now has a repertoire of effects for a full length 45-minute show. After many rehearsals and live performances, the show now features amazing close-up magic, comedy, audience participation and much more. At the end of every show, Clarke always encourages his audience to live life to its fullest and always reach for their hopes and dreams.

Between being a professional magician, and a webmaster, Clarke always seems to find time to enjoy life to its fullest. In his spare time, he enjoys playing golf, watching movies, spending time with his wife Julie, his three cats Bentley, Ginger and Chloe and working on the computer designing web sites.
