Ian has been a full time professional entertainer for 15 years, after giving up his career as an Accountant. Having honed his comedy skills in the challenging environment of the comedy clubs and his magic and mind reading abilities as a Member of The Inner Magic Circle, he now performs primarily at Corporate and similar functions.
Ian works all over the UK and abroad, in venues varying from conference centres to intimate restaurants. As well as making several television appearances, he has recently written and presented two programmes on Radio 4 about mind readers and magicians’ assistants.
Areas of Expertise
Ian Keable is an expert entertainer. He combines his skills as a magician and mind reader with his wit and repartee to leave everybody amazed and laughing continuously throughout his act.
Ian carries no props on stage with him and looks like a conventional business man. He segues effortlessly into his unique performance, catching the audience out not only with his mind reading skills but also turning on their head any preconceived conceptions they might have of a conventional speaker.
I have to confess that I had a small hesitation when we first booked you in case a magician and mind reader might not be suitable for a formal black tie dinner. However every possible doubt was dispelled on the night. The change from a traditional after dinner speaker was universally welcomed.
Dianne Jennings, Federation of Piling Specialists
We all thought you were hilarious as well as amazing. Your blend of humour and mind reading was perfectly balanced, the laughter followed by gasps of wonder. After your show the delegates talked about your act and many of them congratulated me for selecting you as our entertainer – so thank you for making me look good too.
I would certainly recommend you to anyone and everyone: your show was everything anyone could hope for at a conference dinner.
Sandie Smith, The CCTV User Group
The Awards Dinner was taken to a whole new level, to which you played a huge part. You had the audience gripped within the first 30 seconds and mesmerised thereafter. Comments have been full of praise for the whole evening, your act will be talked about for some time to come.
Helen Dobson, Glenvarigill Group Marketing
Your presentation was first class, your humorous delivery much appreciated and your magical moments truly baffling. I would not hesitate to recommend your act to anyone concerned.
Ian Carruthers, Associated Independent Stores Ltd.
We would like to thank you for your excellent performance. Everyone commented on your unbelievable skills and on how impressed they were by your act. Thank you again for rounding off a wonderful evening with such perfection and skill.
Gary Phillips, Solomon Taylor & Shaw
Thank you again for your performance last Monday. I have been flooded with plaudits from our guests and colleagues who felt that the tone and content of your performance matched exactly the ambience of the evening. Thank you once again for a most memorable and enjoyable evening.
Richard Hinton, Shoosmiths
I have to say that the booking of Ian Keable as the evening entertainer was superb! He certainly gave a first class performance and most of our guests enquired as to who he was as they would like to use Ian sometime in the future. Overall the guests and my colleagues at Ferrania were very impressed with Ian and I would certainly recommend him as a bright, punchy and funny after dinner entertainer.
Graham Wilkins, Business Account Manager, Ferrania
My thanks for an absolutely superb act at our annual party. Quite simple, it made it. You had the guests enthralled throughout and everyone has been talking about it ever since. Your off the cuff, slightly irreverent patter was just perfect. The tears were visibly rolling down the cheeks of several normally dour clients.
The Managing Director of one of the top ten advertising agencies who was present told me that he spends his life going to function and seeing after dinner speeches – yours was the best he had ever seen.
Colin Prescott, Flying Pictures
