Paul Ray Magician

Close Up Magician

Paul Ray's act is a unique combination of comedy, close up magic, impressions and audience participation. Suitable for all ages, this is an act packed full of good CLEAN comedy!

Paul is twice winner of 'Best Comedy Stage Magician' (1986 & 2006).

Paul was born (at a very early age!) into a magical family. His parents worked the clubs for many years and went on to work on cruise ships for 15 years, performing on 6 World Cruises.

Based in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, Paul tries to work in a radius of 70 miles but is prepared to travel further for that 'special' show every once in a while!

Paul is also available for close-up magic around the dinner tables and if it is a large corporate function, Paul is able to bring along his father to help!

Paul's 17 year old son, Joe, is also an award winning magician. Last year Joe performed in Louisville, Kentucky and it was while they were there that Paul and his father performed magic for Muhammed Ali.

Paul's father, Geoff, prefers these days to concentrate on the art of 'close-up magic' and goes all over the country giving lectures to fellow magicians.

Book Paul Ray with complete confidence... you simple can't beat 25 years of entertaining experience.

"To say this was a 'brilliant evenings entertainment' is an understatement. In two 40 minute slots, one either side of the buffet supper; he brought the house down with his magic tricks and, in the second half with a tribute to such stars as John Lennon and Cliff Richard, to name but two .I have never seen any event where members have been so noisily enthusiastic!"
