Performance

Walk-around Magic - Paul's forte is walk-around, close-up, comedy Magic, performing for the audience rather than at them his goal. Entertainment and interaction his catchwords. Surprise his calling card. He has been working as a professional Magician for 19 years (27 years as a clown). Influenced by his history in clowning he carries his wit into the magic arena, fusing comedy, mime, acting and magic into an entertaining performance style that amuses all ages. Perfectly suited to corporate walk around entertainment and private functions he weaves magic into an interactive experience with his audience using props not normally associated with "straight magicians". As well as close up magic and comedy he also incorporates balloon sculpting into magical presentations, incorporating pick-pocketing on occasion, culminating in some of the most startling outcomes guaranteed to surprise even the most discerning audiences.

Stage Magic - a 20 - 30 minute comedy / magic show involving audience participation. Dice Box, Change-Bag, Dove Pan, Sleight of Hand and even Pick-Pocketing.
(No live animals) Some balloon sculpting and sometimes juggling too.
Can be presented in Clown or suit and top hat style Magician.

Tailored to the venue and the audience. Lots of participation and fun.
