Paul drove a long way for my wife’s birthday party. He arrived on time and got to work immediately. He was slick, professional and engaging with a polished line of banter that had everyone laughing. Even now three weeks after the event guests are still talking about his skills and amazing tricks. I would recommend Paul without hesitation, a truly professional entertainer,

Paul arrived on time and quickly “got to work” with assembled guests, table by table. He has a very engaging style and his illusions were amazing. All of our guests including myself were impressed an amazed with his close up magic. One of our guests intend to book Paul for a future event she is organising.. I have already sent an email of thanks to Paul.
