Awarded Wedding Entertainer of the Year 2011, Shane Black offers a new and interesting way to entertain your guests with his mind-bending close up magic and psychological illusions.

As well as being the perfect ice-breaker, Shane’s act is a fantastic way to entertain your guests during the reception before the meal gets under way. During his performance, Shane begins with traditional sleight of hand effects, before moving on to more extraordinary mindreading feats with individual volunteers that quite simply, have to be seen to be believed.

Testimonials

  • Just a quick email to say a very sincere "Thank You" for your enormous contribution to our guests enjoyment of the pre-dinner drinks reception on Friday last at the Wineport Lodge. Everyone, without exception, thoroughly enjoyed seeing you in action and are still talking positively about it. Again, many thanks and the best of luck for 2011.

    Submitted by Ed Bourke on Saturday 31 December 2021

  • To anyone considering hiring a magician for their party or event, I cannot recommend Shane Black highly enough. He is absolutely amazing. I contacted Shane when my partner and I were organizing our wedding party, and after I had carried out a lot of research into other acts, I was very intrigued as to what Shane could do. He promised something different and wow, did he deliver!

    Our guests were blown away with his skills and they are still talking about him now. Shane seems to have been the most memorable part of our party, and thats saying something when you consider that our party was Las Vegas style with all the trimmings. Shane actually worked the whole theme to his advantage and was at home with the cards and tables around him as he worked his magic.

    Shane's strengths are in his abilities and how he engages guests. I won't give away any details but Shane performed two signature effects in particular which just made everyones hair stand on end. Shane is a terrific magician but also a really nice guy. He puts you at ease from the first moment of contact, he is very easy to deal with and very funny too. Don't bother with any other research into other acts, I've done that. Take my word for it, book Shane. You won't be disappointed. I just want to express my deepest thanks to Shane for his work and for making our party so memorable.

  • "Thank you Shane for a fantastic evenings entertainment. You were completely mind blowing; my guests cannot stop talking about you. If you ever have a couple not sure if they should have you you get them to call me. I was not sure about your show and now think you were the best decision I made. Many thanks."

    Submitted by Fiona & Dan Shelbourne Hotel on Friday 7 October 2021

  • "Hey Shane, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for performing for our guests the night of our wedding. You were unbelievable and all our guests loved you and couldn't get enough of you. They are blaming you for our first dance being so late as no wanted to leave you in the bar! My dad was just completely taken aback by you I don't think he could believe his eyes, he has been talking about you ever since! People ask how the wedding was; he says Shane Black was amazing!
    Also I wanted to say thank you so much for staying on way past your scheduled time, you are a pure professional and a pleasure to be around. Also we would like to thank you for waiting on Ryan and I to do our first dance and then taking us aside for our private magic performance. We really did appreciate that, as I would have been sick if I missed you.
    Thanks again for everything Shane; you are a true gent and pure talent."

  • "Hi Shane, I just wanted to thank ou again for the most fantastic entertainment. We had so many comments even from the skeptics! Everyone commented on how amazed they were. I only went back to work today and they were all still amazed 3 weeks later! And not to mention how much myself and Neil were left with our jaws open!"

  • Shane, what can I say that 100's of people haven't said before? You were an amazing bonus as entertainment at our Wedding. ALL of the guests were blown away. We saw magic in front of our very own eyes. It would have been good to get some reaction photos, they'd be priceless. And how can you pick memories out of peoples heads?

  • Hi Shane, I just want to thank you so much for entertaining everyone at our wedding on Friday, you were the talk of the night. The photos are fantastic, the expressions are hilarious and you really wowed everyone! Keep up the good work!

    Submitted by Sinead and James McCormack on Friday 9 September 2022

  • Shane, anyone I have seen since the wedding has not stopped commenting on your entertainment that evening. I think you left a few people shell shocked! All along I was looking for something different for the entertainment in the evening rather than the usual and I found that in your performance, you are a great entertainer. Wishing you all the success in the future and I will be recommending you to others. Once again thank you so much for entertaining us on our Big Day.

    Submitted by Brenda & Brian Gaffney on Friday 2 September 2022

  • Surprise surprise that there isn't a negative comment on your page and nor will there be, we got married on Aug 18th and had Shane do the entertainment at our reception whilst we were having our photographs done, this was by far and away one of the best choices we made in organising our wedding, when booking most things for our wedding we looked for recommendations, well if you are considering Shane you are lucky to have come across him and go no further, I only hope that my recommendation is a help to all involved as just a small thank you to Shane for making our special day even better. Thank you again Shane.

    Submitted by Ronan and Niamh on Monday 22 August 2022

We are absolutely delighted that we booked you and won't hesitate to recommend you to any potential clients. It was great to have something unique at our wedding that got people talking and mingling. It's only now that we are back from our honeymoon that we are hearing some of the amazing things that you actually did on the day!

  • We had Shane at our wedding on 6th May 2011 and he was brilliant. We kept it a surprise for all our guests and they were all thrilled with the entertainment he provided, especially my mother who was astounded with him able to guess a school colleagues name totally at random! It was great for people at tables who didn't know each other that well, real ice breaker. He was great with everyone and kept all the tables talking, and they still are.
    Thanks again Shane

  • We had Shane along as an entertainer to our wedding on St Patricks Day. Based on the feedback he is one of the most memorable parts of our wedding. Our guests loved him and you cannot ask for more than that. Our only regret was that we did not get to spend more time with him ourselves. It was not in our original budget but definitely our best investment. Amazing and mind bending, well definitely find an excuse to see Shane again.

    Submitted by Des O'Neill on Thursday 17 March 2022

  • We had Shane Black for our wedding in July 2011 and it's easy to see why he won entertainer of year 2011! He was fantastic and really was one of the talking points of our wedding. The guests really enjoyed his tricks and we would highly recommend him to anyone considering something a bit different for the pre-dinner drinks reception.
