Paul’s public shows

As well as performing at private events, I can be found flabaghasting and wowing guests and public at various ticketed events across London. These include being resident at the monthly magic show at the Ritz Hotel and regularly performing at ‘Magic at the Asylum’, a monthly show of weirder, sometimes darker magic held at the Asylum Chapel.

I am also to be found regularly performing at ticketed events at private members’ clubs across the capital.
