Ritchie Rosson has been working as a professional entertainer across the world for 20 years; in circuses, bands (as a bass player), theatre, television, film and now as a magician and children’s entertainer. Ritchie started his performing career as a rock and roll bass player. On tour he got into yoga and became very flexible. He started showing the funny poses to astonished friends and they told him to go and join the circus. He did! He travelled the world as a performing contortionist under the stage name Rubber Ritchie (see video below) appearing on many TV shows such as Richard and Judy, The One Show, and Britain’s Got Talent as well as having a part in Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire.
In his 30s, Ritchie could no longer maintain such extreme flexibility to be a contortionist so next ventured into the world of clowning but his mother protested due to her fear of clowns! He couldn’t stay upright on a unicycle but he found making balloon models really made people happy. He started dipping his toes into the wonderful world of magic and he started doing a few tricks with his balloons. This slowly developed into party entertaining. He has since begun to do bigger magic shows in shopping centres, schools and for corporate family fun days. Ritchie plans to do bigger and more shows and would love to work in kids TV as well as work in comedy.
