Andy's showreel is a sensational six minutes long, all about Andy's exciting magic shows and children's party entertainment. Andy is also known as "Boo Hiccup" in case you were wondering. Have fun viewing!
Andy says,"Here you can see a little of the magic I do, all fun visual stuff, but you only get to see the 'magic moments' here and the showreel doesn't show any of the build-up, jokes, humour, suspense, situation building or audience participation that is in each and every one of my routines. There's so much more to each routine I perform than I could possibly squeeze into such a short showreel".
Please note that the flash of fire in the box trick is safe and contained, but you don't have to have fire in the show if you don't want to. No probs. Music by, and copyrighted by, Kevin MacLeod, Gorillaz and Bassline Circus featuring Niki Mak
The Dream - a miraculous production of coins and all manner of odd objects The Milk Jug of Doom - Andy's all-time favourite trick. Kids' Revenge - where the children choose which of the cups Andy will pour over his head - will Andy get wet or not? Now with a new twist in the tale as well. Water Through Body - Andy magically pours water all the way through the middle of a child volunteer. Big Nose - where the children help draw a portrait of Andy by magic and with this extra help he is guaranteed not to look as gorgeous as he wants to be. What’s In The Bin? - this magic is rubbish, quite literally! Everything found in the waste bin gets mended by magic. Orange -a signed £100 note is magically vanished by the helper and then reappears inside an orange. A Daring Escape - a fabulous feat of escapology with a length of solid steel chain, a roll of electrical tape and a handbag. Food and Drink - food and drink appear from within a Food and Drink magazine. The Strongest Knot In The World - some very visual magic with ropes, magic dust, and a helper from the audience. Kryptonite - by the power of the planets Andy makes a pupil (or teacher!) very very weak and then he makes them very very strong. Static - Andy "magnetises" a child helper and metal objects then stick miraculously to them. The Chip Chopper - an illusion with a machine that chops chips and two audience helpers. Crazy Pete’s Box of Horrible Things - Andy has a seemingly easy task to do, but if the children mess it up for him then he’s going to have to put his hand into Crazy Pete’s Box of Horrible Things. The Oops Machine - magic using shoes borrowed from the audience and a bewitched box that turns them into mush. Can Andy put them all back together again before it's too late? The Comeback Spider - a giant card trick where the children turn all Andy's pretty cards into pictures of spiders. The Magic Balloon Competition - where, despite all Andy's cheating, the audience helper will always win. Pizzadigitation - where Andy claims he can turn a wooden pizza into a real pizza, but the children catch him cheating every step along the way. Wool - a signed sheep disappears and reappears inside a ball of wool The Dog Food Challenge - a brilliant routine with flowerpots, prizes and one horrible forfeit. Suffice to say Andy gets it wrong yet again and the children win out (as this trick is quite gross he only now does this on request or at Hallowe'en!) Straitjacket and Chains Escape -an exciting escapology routine. Cups and Balls - the all time classic, performed in a comedy manner. Suitable for smaller groups.

NAUGHTY MAGICIANS JUST GET A LUMP OF COAL ...
Here Andy Hiccup is practising a new routine for his Christmas shows. As it's a just a rough run-through it was never intended for the public, but as it was getting very good reactions from friends and colleagues (and their children!) it's now here on his website for all to see.
