Biography

“A contemporary master of his art”
The Times

Paul Zenon is the UK’s leading comedy magician, with performances in around forty countries and appearances as presenter and pundit on literally hundreds of network television shows.

After deceiving the nation’s youth with several series on Children’s BBC in the early Nineties, together with a Royal Variety Performance, he went on to produce and host numerous prime time programmes across many genres, including the ground-breaking Channel 4 one-man ‘Street Magic’ specials Paul Zenon Turning Tricks, Paul Zenon’s Tricky Christmas and Paul Zenon’s Trick or Treat, which were screened worldwide.

Paul has appeared in venues ranging from the Mirage, Luxor, Orleans and Tropicana Casinos, Las Vegas, to the London Palladium, and the Burj Al Arab, Dubai, to the Kempinski Resort in the Seychelles. He is a long-term favourite on the international comedy club circuit and in recent years has had recent sell-out appearances at festivals in Edinburgh, London, Brighton, Auckland, Barbados, Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne, both with his own shows and as a regular in the Olivier Award-winning cabaret circus shows La Clique and La Soiree.

Paul continues to be in demand at corporate events worldwide as performer presenter, and awards host, with a client list which reads like a Who’s Who of Blue Chip companies.

Paul is possibly the UK’s busiest corporate entertainer and presenter. His client list is a Who’s Who of Blue Chip companies and he has twenty years experience in performing after-dinner cabaret and hosting awards ceremonies and numerous other events for audiences ranging in size from a dozen to thousands at top venues all over the world.

Recent television appearances include White Magic with Paul Zenon (ITV1), Paul Zenon’s Revenge Squad (ITV1), The Culture Show (BBC2), The One Show (BBC1), The Gadget Show (C5), 50 Greatest Magic Tricks (C5) and over 100 appearances as special guest in Dictionary Corner on Countdown (C4).

He appears regularly in the media as an authority with regard to all things weird and wonderful, including the history of Variety and Magic (with Houdini as a speciality), the ‘paranormal’ (as a skeptic), and con-men, scams and hustles.

He is the author of the best-selling books 100 Ways to Win a Tenner, Paul Zenon’s Dirty Tricks and Street Magic, all published by Carlton.

‘Top turn…genuinely funny…brilliant’
Gary Bushell, The Sun

‘A natural star’
 The Times

‘In show business, magic and comedy usually marry inadvertently. The rabbit wriggles out early, the wrong card is pulled, the girl drops the axe. After seeing Paul Zenon’s act, it hits home that comedy and magic are apple and cinnamon, movies and rainy days — combinations that, once experienced, are irresistible’
Gautum Raja, Gulf News

‘Zenon is the consummate showman; a very talented magician who present his brilliant gift with a lively, self-effacing style. His is a bullet-proof set that never fails…the timing is immaculate, genially entertaining any audience as he nimbly leaps from one impressive trick to the next with distinctive flair. His jovial banter seems effortlesslessly fresh…faultless professionalism. It makes for a set that guarantees fun’
Chortle

‘His deceptive self-deprecation belies the inventive precision of his stunts and the sharpness of his warm wit…seeing will be believing!’
 William Cook, The Guardian

‘This show may actually have everything…the magic is what you’d hope for, fast and surprising, what I wasn’t expecting was the genuinely funny stand-up patter…it’s mesmerising stuff – get a ticket. 5 out of 5’
Lauren Pringle, Brighton Festival review
