Magical Richard Griffin was one of the great Dove illusionists out there, he gave Paul Daniels lessons init. He made Michael Jackson whoop whoop and supported some of the best in Cabaret in the 1990’s across the UK. I had the pleasure of working with Richard in a social club for a mutual agent in the late 1990’s and we then worked Cruise Ships together, Christmas Shows and Theatre Tours.
We have become close and often get together my 2 daughters with his two sons to create havoc on the town of his hometown of Wisbech, the havoc comes from the parents not the kids.
We have laughed for over 15 years together although a seemingly shy guy, Richard is full of charisma, personality and performs a suave sophisticated magical show wherever he goes wowing not only Popstars and politicians but Royalty too.
His story of how he got into magic is poignant and no doubt hard for him to talk about but I thank him for his honesty and friendship in our chat on Eyes & Teeth A Touch of Magic
