From Stethoscope to Stage; About Aaron
Having originally trained in medicine at The University of Nottingham, Mancunian Aaron Calvert soon traded his white coat, for a sharp suit and took to the stage. This cheeky northerner has found ever growing success combining his exceptional skills as a hypnotist, magician and mind reader to bring audiences performances they’ll never forget.
Aaron’s passion and focus make a distinct departure from traditional “cluck-like-a-chicken” comedy hypnotism, moving away from the slightly disreputable shows of old, a tranche of great reviews coupled with his natural charisma and showmanship have led to a TV show with Channel 4 (airing later in 2018), an exclusive contract with Warner Bros TV to produce more shows and an exciting year ahead of live stage shows.
With sell-out shows two years in a row at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2016 & 2017 with Aaron Calvert: MIND GAMES & Aaron Calvert: AWAKEN, Aaron is returning to Edinburgh in 2018 with his new show Aaron Calvert: Declassfied.
These shows represent more than 10 years of experience performing & Aaron still treasures his first ever stage review he recieved whilst performing a theatre show whilst at medical school. (Yes he was crazy enough to perform professionally whilst working towards his degree.) It was with the feedback of audeinces and guduidance from friend, magician & now co-writer Sam Fitton that Aaron took the leap of faith leaving his full-time career as a doctor for the life in entertainment.
“Aaron offers a night of intrigue, exceptional showmanship and many moments of unexpected humour“

BOOK SPECTACULAR ENTERTAINMENT
Magician or mind reader, what’s the difference?
As a mind reader and hypnotist many people call Aaron a magician, but that’s not technically correct. When I say magician to you, what’s the first image that pops into your head? Maybe it’s an old uncle attempting an awful card trick or a man on stage with a top hat pulling out a rabbit. Those images in your head are so far from the truth of what it is that Aaron does.
Magician of the mind describes Aaron’s type of entertainment and performance much better, as the ‘magic’ he perform happens in the minds of you and your guests. Much like a magician, occasionally Aaron uses a deck of cards, but rather than have you pick a card he has you think of one and reaches into your mind to reveal the card you are thinking of.
Think about that for a moment, Aaron can tell you what you are merely thinking of…
Now, rather than playing cards imagine you think of any word or maybe even a secret, suddenly rather than revealing a card Aaron steps into your mind and reveals that specific thought. This is a completely unique and wonderfully personal type of entertainment. True magic that happens in the minds of you & yourr guests. Trust me, that magical feeling is something you will never forget.
On paper, well the digital screen you’re currently reading this on, that all sounds incredible but also rather serious. You don’t want something somber and serious at your event, you want something upbeat and fun right? That’s why Aaron first and foremost entertains your guests, makes them laugh, whilst knocking their socks off. We want everyone to leave your event having had the best and most memorable time possible. Aaron shows everyone the impossible first hand, leaving everyone talking about your event for years to come.
Like a magician Aaron performs close-up, in intimate groups or on large stages to thousands of people; essentially anywhere you could have a magician perform. Rather than performing sleight of hand and pushing things up his sleeves, Aaron messes with the minds of guests and uses a variety of techniques ranging from deduction, to body language, to psychology to reveal thoughts and influence decisions. Some would say it’s a sleight of mind.
If you’re thinking about having entertainment at your event, stop thinking about it and start booking, trust us you won’t regret it and your guests will thank you for it!
