Steve Short has been a full time professional magician for more than thirty years. His interest started when his parents bought him a magic book for his eleventh birthday.
For many years Steve has been a big fan of Johnny Hart, enjoying his live and televised performances. Steve was also greatly influenced by David Nixon. Steve and magic historian Eddie Dawes collaborated to produce the biography of David Nixon, the book being well received by magicians and the general public. Both were awarded the John Nevil Maskelyne Prize for literature, from The Magic Circle. With Scott Penrose, Steve worked on the biography of Alan Shaxon who was another magician he was inspired by.
During his career Steve has entertained on television and radio. He has also travelled the world entertaining on luxury cruise ships and is busy touring the country bringing his own very special mix of magic and comedy for parties, weddings, corporate events and other fun get-togethers. Steve is very proud to be an Associate Member of the Inner Magic Circle with Silver Star.
