"Petunia did not want Lily as a bridesmaid, because she was tired of being overshadowed; Lily was hurt. Vernon refused to speak to James at the reception, but described him, within James’ earshot, as ‘some kind of amateur magician’."
—Description[src]

A magician or illusionist is a Muggle individual who performs illusions which are designed to look like real magic, and as such tries to act as a wizard. A magician never reveals his tricks.

The charlatan in the story Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump is a magician who performed a few tricks to convince the king that he is a wizard of immense powers.[1]

David Copperfield is the stage name of a very successful magician in the Muggle world.

During the wedding of Vernon Dursley and Petunia Evans, Vernon referred to James Potter, a wizard, brother-in-law of Petunia and Lily Evans' boyfriend, as an amateur magician, an intentional and grave insult to any true wizard.[2]
