Hello, my name is Eddie Burke and I am a member of the Mercian Mystics Magic Society (past president & honorary life president), The Inner Magic Circle with Gold Star, Northern Magic Circle (past president, the International Brotherhood of Magicians and British Actors’ Equity.
I have had a long professional career as a magician, puppeter, hypnotist and mentalist, during which I have performed worldwide on cruise liners and at corporate functions, theatres, universities, military camps, holiday camps, in cabaret and private engagements worldwide.
During this time I have appeared in the homes and at functions for many famous people including British and foriegn members of various royal families.
Many people may also remember me from the shows that I performed at the Theatre Royal in Hanley and Jollies nightclub in Longton, which were always a big attraction locally.
Over the years I have had the pleasure of working with many famous artistes including Morecambe & Wise, Ken Dodd, Ester Ranson, Joe (piano) Henderson, Bruce Forsythe and many others. I even had the pleasure and privilege to teach a conjuring trick to John Lennon of Beatles fame.
I was hypnotic adviser for an episode of Taggart on TV and have appeared personally on such shows as Hippodrome, New Faces, Town and Around and a variety of magazine and other news-type programmes.
My family has a long history of magic & its allied arts, which include my great uncle Arthur Dowler, a comedy magician long before Tommy Cooper, my cousin Roy Baker hypnotist & magician & a great, great uncle Albert Bailey who emigrated to the USA in the 1920s and opened a magic shop in New York. My sister Joan who as Astra is a local clairvoyant, as indeed was my grandmother!
I am now semi-retired but I still entertain in the Staffordshire and South Cheshire areas with my shows for both children and adults, so if you are planning an event do feel free to give me a call.
Futhermore, as a fully qualified hypnotherapist and psychotherapist of many years’ experience I also see a few private patients at my clinic to the rear of my premises in Light Oaks, Stoke-on-Trent.
I am also the owner and operator of Mr. ‘E’ Enterprises one of the largest on-line mail order magical supplies in the UK - please visit www.mreenterprises.co.uk for further details.
