Magician and Children’s Entertainer Andy Carando’s interest in magic started at a very early age with a box of magic tricks given to him at the age of eight! He spent many hours learning and perfecting new tricks to show his friends and teachers at school.
As a young man Andy competed in and won many of the local seaside talent competitions which led on to auditions for national TV talent shows!
After leaving school he started out in professional show business as part of a double act with his sister Carole. They joined Equity, the Actors and Entertainers Union and went on to perform in the UK and abroad together for 25 years as a Magician and Ventriloquist act under the name of ‘The Carandoes & Henry the Dog’.
Many years ‘treading the boards’ entertaining at holiday camps, cruises, clubs, theatres, & cabaret etc. earned Andy along with his sister Carole Winners of the ‘Best Speciality Act’ in Lincolnshire. Andy was chosen to be Compere for Skegness & Mablethorpe Illuminations Switch-ons for several years running.
After Carole retired from Showbusiness Andy went on to specialise in children’s party entertainment and created The ‘Andy Carando Magic Fun Show’. He performs his popular show at Children’s Birthday Parties, Christmas shows & special events all over Lincolnshire with the help of his ‘Roadie’ Martin.
A long serving Honoury member and four times President of The South Lincs Magical Society along with Magician of The Year at the Grimsby Magic Circle voted by his fellow Magicians are among his many achievements in the last 40 years.
Andy is as keen today as he was right at the start of his career and prides himself on giving the best children’s parties which stay in their memories forever.
