Aberdeen Magician Carl Howse AKA The Great Hootini.
Aberdeen based Magician Carl Howse is the perfect choice for your next party or event.
The Great Hootini's Children’s Parties are filled with Amazing Magic, Balloon Modelling and Fun and Laughter.
He’s a Children’s Entertainer who performs Birthday Party Magic in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire and Scotland.
You could say Carl was destined to be an entertainer.
His grandfather worked for the circus as a ‘Human Cannonball’, he only got paid £2 a night (plus mileage!), and his father regularly did a disappearing act, so performing runs in the family.
After 20 years in the business, Carl has performed magic for all types of events throughout Scotland including corporate entertainment, birthday parties, weddings, and all kinds of private functions. He is a very versatile magician who can perform close-up magic among guests as well as stand up magic in front of a crowd. He is at home performing adult magic as well as entertaining at children’s parties.
Whether at a wedding, children’s party, or other personal event, Carl enjoys mixing with an audience. He prides himself on entertaining with magic and humour without offending or embarrassing those around him. He has garnered loads of faithful fans including many clients who book him consistently for their events. His clientele includes Hilton Hotels, British Telecom, The National Trust, and Aberdeen Football Club.
Hiring Carl means you’re getting an award-winning magician. He has won many awards for close-up and stand up magic including the prestigious “Jock Scott Trophy for Entertainment” awarded by fellow magicians at the Aberdeen Magical Society. Carl is also a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians and Equity.
You’ll be astonished at the exciting tricks Carl has up his sleeve – his magic isn’t just card effects and pulling rabbits out of hats… although, Carl does have a pet white rabbit called Henry who is very spoilt and who occasionally does appear out of a hat. In fact, Carl admits Henry is an incredible crowd pleaser and is the real star of the show.
At the heart of it all, Carl simply loves entertaining people. Equal parts magician, comedian, balloon modeler and all around likable fellow, he truly enjoys performing. In fact, it’s a toss up who enjoys one of Carl’s performances more – the guests or Carl!
He is a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians and Equity.
