Since 1995 Charlie Valentino has been entertaining at more than 1000 events to more than 50,000 adults and children alike.

He has visually represented many companies for trade shows, open days, and many other kinds of promotions.

With the help of his wife assistant, Tracey, he has appeared at many shopping centres across the UK, such as, The Buttermarket in Ipswich, The Martletts in Burgess Hill, The Maltings in St Albans, The Howard Centre in Welwyn Garden City, The Swan Centre in Leatherhead, and The Chantry Centre in Andover. (See Magic Moments for more details)

He has entertained guests on board P & O Ferries 'Pride of Portsmouth' and 'Pride of Le Harve' ships.

Charlie supports many charities by entertaining for organisations such as, Childline, Prospect, Barnardos, Salvation Army, Pimlico Puffins, Unity Church, and especially enjoys entertaining senior citizens at over 50 residential and retirement homes around London and the South East of England.

Charlie got the magic 'bug' as a young child after borrowing a book on card tricks from his local library.

"My grandfather was always showing me various card tricks and I would sit for ages trying to work out how he did them."

While studying, a part-time job with a local restaurant led to the chance for Charlie to work for a year as assistant to clown Ronald McDonald. This, combined with his great admiration for the late, great, Tommy Cooper, would go on to have a major influence on his own act.
